I am in the same situation with a Galaxy Tab 7 aka gt_p1000... I wanted to reset the tablet. No way through normal os procedure ->
I did a super silly "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmblkp2" from local root terminal
/dev/mmcblkp2 was the device mounted in /data
yahoo I now need to format the partition... so now I should mkfs /dev/mmcblkp2... but how?
I tried to install the latest for europe p1000
Used odin repartitioning applying pit and tar for pda section, repartitioning. (tried not repartitioning too)
I then applied dbdata.tar not repartitioning.
Completes but when rebooting gives this message as darkfangerex5
"your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions"
"copy default media content failed"
SO your suggestion is what I'd go for..
"download a firmware with three files and 512 PIT" on samfirmware I have no way of knowing if there is any similar rom config.
Can you point any rom to use? My tablet is stuck at the moment ((
did you solve your problem and how?
Thanks for any help
