There may be ways to run cm rom on external sd that is properly partitioned, if you still want to get some live out of your tab.

The thought had occurred to me, although I did fix the Odin stock load fail with some further digging (re-loaded USB drivers, plugged cable into different port). Still boot looping...doesn't even boot enough to get adb logcat.
P1 add hidden doesn't help, and makes the next attempt fail, and I have to reload drivers. Same with dbdata.rfs. Although after reflashing dbdata.rfs I can get to recovery<3e> and boot into download. Checksum fails after P1_add_hidden and after dbdata.rfs, but not after USB reload and GB Stock Safe flash. Still stuck at Samsung logo, though.
Is there any way to find out if the chip is my problem for sure, short of tearing the Tab apart?
