Hi folks. I have a USCellular Tab 10.1 LTE (which identifies itself as a p4vzw and should work fine with VZW ROMs)
  • Per the instructions in this XDA message posting I have installed CM10.1 + GAPPS
  • The message says I need to flash this kernel here. How do I do that? The webpage linked shows the source code, but I'm lost with what to do!
  • I have -no- LTE/CDMA radio and have a message which shows "unknown baseband" - again, supposedly the
  • I originally flashed from the FB01 firmware which is supposedly what I am supposed to use - thus, the Verizon baseband SHOULD allow me to connect.
  • Any thoughts?

I need to:
  • Get help to flash that kernel
  • get help getting the radio working

(My original baseband information was as follows: CDMA i905.03 V.FB04 //////// LTE: SCH-i905.FB01

Not sure about the radio, but you don't have to flash that kernel. It is already packed into the ROM.

Gotchya, Thanks!

I don't know why that was mentioned in the step outlined above.

However, the radio part is the most confusing to me at the moment :-/

As I recall, you first have to be on ICS and it's radios before flashing CM. I would recommend first flashing ICS for VZW then install CM 10.1

I seem to be having trouble finding a Stock VZW flashable ROM. There is an update.zip which should run in the stock recovery, but I think I will need Odin or a CWM flashable ICS build.

Any thoughts?

Any fix to this yet? I will never use my tab on a network, just want a better running rom and cant seem to find anything that works. Tried pershoots kernel but it just gets stuck at the samsung screen for more than 45 mins until i just hard reset and nand back to stock. I got this tsb for free, its just very laggy. Thanks for your time guys
Edit: basically i just want to verify that CM can and is working on this specific us cellular device.

CM should work (cellular data) and the rom i use on mine, i am currently using it as wifi only, i use cm10.1 it runs really smooth and it allows a stable overclock which makes it run much faster, there are a ton of tweaks you can set another tip is to turn the window animation scale .5 as well as the other two transition and animator. If you need any help flashing shoot me a pm and i can walk you through
