Default [Q] Galaxy tab P1000 root-flash process

Hi,

I'd like to install CM to my tab. I've read its quite complicated, and you can brick your device quite fast. Could anyone provide a detailed and relatively safe solution to upgrade from 2.2(!)?

Do I need to root first, and install cwm?

Thanks a lot!

Theoretically you don't need root, only need cwm.
But for 2.2, many has locked bootloader that prevents flashing non samsung signed stuff.
So you need to root to then check the bootloader if it is locked. If locked, then apply a patch. That is why root is needed.

Can I use doomlord to root it? Or is there another way?

Hi,

Here is what I did:
I was on Froyo too (P1000BVJJ2, Orange France).
I rooted the Tab with z4root with no problem
Then checked if bootlooder was locked with SGT-Bootloader-Patch-v1.00.apk (from Chainfire): it was unlocked
Then flashed Overcome 4.1 (follow the guide)
Then flashed AOKP SGT7 JB-MR1 (from Stimpz0r)
Then flashed CM11 (from terenceng)

No problem at all. You can follow my steps, but don't blame me if it does not work for you !

I'm stuck at the "root with z4root" problem. The app is freezing and not doing anything sadly. Tried to look up a solution here, on xda forums, but the last thread about z4root I found was from 2011 and its closed now.

Any other idea how to deal with 2.2?

I will guide you..just follow it without fear.
  1. Search and Download "CF-Root-TAB7_XX_OXA_JQ1-v3.3-CWM3RFS" using Google.
  2. Search and Download Odin v1.7 using Google.
  3. Switch OFF your Tab and switch it ON while holding Volume down button.It gets into Download mode.
  4. Open the Odin application on PC and Now connect the tab to the PC. The Comment 'Added' appears on Odin. If not try other USB ports and I hope you have installed the PC~ADB drivers.
  5. On the PDA section of Odin browse and include the 'CF-Root-TAB7_XX_OXA_JQ1-v3.3-CWM3RFS' file, do not alter anything.
  6. Click Start, let it do it business.I will Reset automatically.
  7. Now you have a CWM and a Rooted P1000 Tab. Play well
