I've never experience crashing thing if I play average games like cards etc. Apart from that, my battery drained way too fast for certain games. For your information, I'm a very hardcore gamer. Since I'm doing my work at home, most of time I spend it on games (probably like 16-18 hours or more per day while doing work or else). Because of this very reason, I've been thinking to upgrade it to latest android version so I can play latest games on Google Store. So I've been reading about custom ROM and decided to make it. My problem is my device is already rooted and I dont remember anything about it either which root tutorial I followed before or what apps that I used to root it. Only thing I remember is that Root Developer said that I need to use this same root apps to unroot my device. So now what can I do to get this custom ROM work? Do I need to unroot > stocked ROM > root again > custom ROM? Or I just straight doing this custom rom? And what is best stable custom ROM available for my device?
Here is my spec :-
Model : Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 (Phone/WiFi/3G)
Firmware : 2.3.3
Baseband : P1000DXJPE
Kernel : 126.96.36.199 root@DELL126#2
Build : GINGERBREAD.DXJPI
Status : Rooted (I forgot how I root this)
Overclocking : Never did.
P/S : Sorry for my bad english.
First, I'd seriously consider jumping to One of the better.... Um focused CyanogenMod 11, or OmniROM Builds if I were you. There is plently to be gained by updating the OS. Google Now being IMHO one of the better reasons to upgrade.
Secondly, I get your "Problem" its One in which I to share in. I guess it comes down to how well the "Developer" of your "Game" wishes to optimize their Code for. Most Games tend to work... Well enough...
Other Games like Gameloft's My Little Pony have never worked well on either my Galaxy S (GT-I9000), or my Galaxy Tab (GT-P1000). Unfortunately for us these Devices only has a total of 512MB of which a portion is needed to run the OS which may leave you with something like 488MB free once your said and done. I suspect that these "Games" are probably more RAM hungry, and probably need a somewhat stronger CPU & GPU then what is on the P1000.

It also look awesome. Still thanks a lot for your reply. I have few question here..
1. Is there any Overcome ROM with android version of 4.+.+ or I should use Android 4.3 Jelly Bean CM10.1 Nightly ROM?
2. Can I have more than 1 ROM installed? Because I like Overcome style and still need android 4.+.+ for games.
3. With this Overcome I currently use now, is it still rooted or do I need to root it again? Because I need root access for some of apps like freedom, etc.
4. In case I click reset to factory data reset on setting. Is it reset back as first time I install Overcome ROM?
1) Overcome is a modded Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread), TeamOvercome has since left the Stage, as Samsung will no longer maintain this Device. As to CyanogenMod... For the P1000 Int'l GSM...
I'd recommend you use the following....
You can basically forget about wanting to use CM10.1 or CM10.2, as they are both broken, and are themselves pretty much unsupported
CM11 I'm quite partial to this ROM [ROM] SGT7 CM11.0 UNOFFIAL [4.4.2][P1/L/N][Kernel 3.0.x][2014-05-25]
as the everything that, needs to work works again. Unlike CM10's .1 & .2. Namely the Camera. Just One word of caution here though. Due to the limited /system Partition. You should only install GApps_Minimal_4.4.2_signed.zip
if you want to use something like AdAway on your Rooted Phablet.
As a side note I'd also recommend you try OmniROM. Though its a bit different to CyanogenMod. In that its NOT rooted! which is a major PITA! but there are ways to get 'round that. Unlike CM11 this ROM is updated nearly every day. Unlike the aforementioned CM11 Build this One will allow you to install the full GApps. But in the case of AdAway... Which depends on root, may not work unless you put a specific *.zip File into some Folder that insures that you have root every time you update it.
2) I'm not sure I think I read something about OmniROM beta testing some kind of dual boot system. But I gather its not ready for prime time yet though.
3) Yes its Kernel OS related you can reset your Phablet as many times as you wish it'll still be rooted. AFAIK only the Samsung Stock... And OmniROM ROMs are NOT rooted by default.
4) A factory reset should wipe all personal data on your Phablet Device. It would be analogues to a fresh install of Windows.. If you catch my drift.
