Hi guys,

Ok so apparently I flashed the P1000 firmware to a SCH-i800 device. As one would expect it is now bricked. I can get it to boot into download mode by plugging the device into the wall and holding down the Vol Down button. However, I cannot get it to power up while connected to my PC to flash it. Is there anyway this can be done?

Hmm by any chance. Do you know what firmware was on it? What carrier are you bound to as they may have their own firmware? Details please. Also when you connect tab in download mode does it appear in odin (yellow box with com# in it).

I am not sure which firmware was on the device before I started messing with it. The carrier is Verizon Wireless. Since the flash I've now got the device recognized by Odin however I cannot seem to find the correct firmware to flash to the device. So yes the box is yellow in Odin.

Does anyone know where I can find the firmware for the Verizon Wireless tablet?

Update:

OK so I was able to flash the Galaxy Tab using Heimdall and a Verizon Wireless stock rom which I found here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/sam...tock-dj11.html.

The tablet is now booting to the Verizon Wireless logo and then hangs. I can boot into recovery mode which I did a factor data reset. However, the tablet is still hanging at the Verizon Wireless logo. What now?

Sucess! Finally got it unbrick. I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time but I reflashed it with Heimdall again and it booted up just fine (After the data wipe of course). Thanks for the help all!
