hey, this is my first post on this forum

here in Indonesia, Samsung Galaxy Tab2 is sold in 3G 16GB version
there are no color choice, no wifi version available in Indonesia (officially)

yes, mine do have ARMv7 Dual core @1008 Mhz , PowerVR SGX540.
but this one does not have infrared port (dvd or tv remote control fuction, as some website says), it does not have face unlock ('though yes, it's an ICS), i don't get 48 extra gigs from dropbox, but it does support voice call and video call over it's carrier network (GSM/HSPA+)
and the type was written as GT-P3100 (Espresso)

so, my conclusion, yes yours is a legit Samsung GalaxyTab2, it's just the matter of Developer version installed on yours.

What is your Kernel and Firmware version?

It could be that my device is from Korea cause Kies mark my firmware as KOR (Korean??).

EDIT: Does your lock screen work?

My device was slow and sluggish especially when typing where I would experience a one second delay per keystroke. I tried the galaxy tab 7.0 plus and that was a very fast phone / tablet. Everything just flies.

can anyone with the 3100 confirm what kind of processor this has? OMAP? exynos? Qualcomm??

try these:

The boot log:

adb shell dmesg > /tmp/dmesg.txt

The cpuinfo:

adb shell cat /proc/cpuinfo > /tmp/cpuinfo.txt

The system properties:

adb shell getprop > /tmp/props.txt

if you need adb, assuming your have windows;

try unzipping my attachment from post #15

I doubt it is a exynos though clocked at 1008Mhz. I hope Im wrong as this could be huge for our CM9 port. Thanks.

Sure. Ok.
This will be for windows OS.
You will need some drivers installed.
Maybe just plugging your device into windows will download the right drivers. Probably not.
Other options for getting drivers are Samsung Kies software,its an 88MB download.
I think hemidall also has drivers. Heimdall
This should be the one you want: heimdall-suite-1.3.2-win32.zip Unzip it and go to drivers folder, double click zadig.exe and choose samsung, and install the driver.
When you have think you have saome working drivers installed. Unzip the platform-tools folder I linked to previously.
Then, on your tab 2, go into settings, developer options and make sure USB debugging is selected. Then connect device to your computer.
Open up a command prompt, and change directory to the platform tools folder.
example: C:>cd C:/yourname/desktop/platform-tools
press enter
it should show C:>\yourname\desktop\platform-tools
then type adb
it scroll through a ton of text, that's good, now try adb devices. If it shows a serial number, you are all set.
you can then run the commands above.
But let us know how you make out with " adb devices".
If you get that far, I'll step you through the rest.
Thanks.
