Unhappy [Q] Default Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (GT-P6210) will not flash or Factory Restore

I've been asked to look at a friends Galaxy Tap 7.0 plus (GT-P6210) tablet as they want it restoring to factory defaults.

I've tried the basic factory Restore but this goes through the motions and then when it reboots all previous apps and settings are back.

I've tried to flash the firmware from the Samsung firmware site using the SD Card method and using ODIN but still get the apps and settings back.

Think I'm ready to use it as target practice.

Anyone come across this before?

Seems like it is locked in some way but no idea how. I've not had much experience with Samsung's just cheap nasty Arnova tablets.

Cheers

Tried a few different versions but nothing works, the original comes back.
