Since no one posted here yet, I will.

THIS IS STRICTLY FOR SPRINT TAB ONLY.

Here is all the step you need to get your tab updated to Gingerbread. Thanks to ZoinksS2k for the guide and pvtjoker42 for the file.

First you have to have stock EB28 on the tab. If not follow these steps:
  1. Download the E24 flasher
  2. Find a copy of Odin (1.3 worked for me)
  3. Extract the flasher, look in \Models\Binary, strip the .MD5 extension from the file SPH-P100.EA24.SECURE.REV07-FULL_CL871413.tar.md5
  4. Load Odin
  5. Connect device via USB
  6. Reboot into recovery (power off, hold power and down volume keys or do a "adb reboot download")
  7. Select the newly renamed .TAR file in the PDA slot in Odin
  8. Select start (flashing should commence)
  9. Boot, then you will be prompt for EB28 update, allow the EB28 update to complete

Then follow these step to update to Gingerbread:
  1. Download the Gingerbread update (Special thanks to pvtjoker42 for this. Source)
  2. Copy the update_from_EB28_to_EF17.zip file to the root of your SD card, rename it to update.zip
  3. Reboot into recovery (power off, hold power and up volume keys or do a "adb reboot recovery")
  4. Use volume rocker to select apply update.zip (or whatever)
  5. Touch the home button to select

NOTE: If you got stuck during the update, try to reformat the sd card with your tab or use a different one, then try again

Warning: You will lose root on the tab, and there is not a solution to root Gingerbread yet...

Enjoy!

Hold in power for like 20 seconds (power off), then power on like usual.

Boot normal? Yeah!

Stuck at samsung logo? Bad flash. Return to step one.

Try to format your sd card or use a different card.

I had to reformat the SD card on the tab itself and then try the update.zip in recovery. Don't reformat the card via windows, that didn't work for me.

I posted this in the GB update thread as well.....


Can someone pull a nandroid, and a roto for me of the sprint gb stock after install, pm me and ill give you an ftp account to upload it.

Make sure....for the love of god, please remove your personal data first.

I could use a clean system dump to start on some roms in gb.

Do a Factory reset before you do a nandroid or a roto. That way no personal data will be there before you send it to Oldmacnut

Sorry for the noob question but can you instruct how to do this? Would save me sometimes researching. Thanks
