Unhappy [Q] Probably broke the bootloader

Greetings,
I am in search for help to restore my GT-P1000 (p1); I do not have any SD in it.

Here what it happened:
I upgraded it from cm-10.1-20131117-NIGHTLY-p1.zip to cm-11-20131207-NIGHTLY-p1.zip
After the update it was really blazingly fast, more than with CM 10.x; everything worked: bluetooth, camera, radio, wifi, flash, gps, etc.
Then I upgraded gapps, installing those of CM11.
And rebooted.
Then I noticed I forgot to Clear the cache and Dalvik cache and rebooted in maintainance mode and there I misclicked and formatted /system.

I tried to reinstall stock 2.3.3 android and then reinstall CM-11, but Odin fails to recognize the device.

From my limited knowledge of Android, apart from removing everything I think I broke the bootloader. In fact:
* Odin does not recognize the Tab when in Download mode (POWEL + VOL DOWN) (I tried with Windows XP, 7, 8; connecting the tab after and before starting Odin, etc); the strange fact is that Heimdall recognizes the device;
* When the Tab is plugged to recharge, it boots in Maintainance mode (like POWER + VOL UP).

Can anybody help me to get Odin work again with my tab?

You can use heimdall.
If you need to use odin, reinstall the windows USB driver for Samsung.
you probably never tried with odin after you had heimdall while the tab was still ok.

You can't damage a bootloader with just flashing and playing with recovery.

Yes, I did.
From different PCs, with windows XP, 7 and 8.
With Kies or just the Samsung drivers - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=961956 - and every time Odin does not recognize the Galaxy Tab. Windows detects a "Gadget Serial" device attached to the USB port, but it does not associate a driver to it. Manually doing so doesn't change the final result: the device is not recognized.

I'll try again with Odin. If there will be no results again I'll resign myself to use Heimdall after reading a guide (I never used it).

On Linux, here is the dmesg output when the tab is plugged to the usb port:

The device is currently detected by Heimdall but not by Odin.

One last question: do you know why the device starts in recovery mode when I plug it to the wall to recharge the battery?
