Hey Guys

Strange. I have Problem entering recovery mode on my device.
With my former galaxy tab :No Problem. So let me clarify a few things.
When i turn of my device battery icon appears. Correct?

While the battery icon is flashing i press down simotanely both buttons power and volume up. Or first volume up and then the power?
I tried both versions and 2 things happen. If i donīt release the power button it just keeps restarting again and again.

If i release the power button- the system boots to os.

Perhaps i have the timing not right i donīt know.When exactly do i have to release the power button. When the big Samsung Galaxy tab 7.7 screen is seen?

Sorry guys but would be nice if you would post the exact procedure. I really need root to get my back up from titanium running.

Unplug all cables first, then you'll get it (as per post #1).

Turn off mobile data option if it keeps happening, hold down the power button and choose disable network data. I even have mine on flight mode and only enable Wifi. Though I dont have the same issue as yours.

Make sure the firmware matches the original region of your Tab.

How do I backup my original ROM before rooting the device? I receive my SGT7.7 this Saturday (Excited!).

Thanks!

As it says in the guide in first post, you need to use an EXTERNAL SDCARD!

/sdcard = internal storage

/sdcard/extStorages/SdCard = external storage

Thank you for the clarification!

Having problems getting Keis to recognize the device. (I have the HK 3g model from Negri). Not sure if I need a special version of the software. Device manger sees it as SAMSUNG Mobile USB Composite Device with and Exclamation point on the driver. Kies Version 2.2.0.12014_18.

I also tried copying the files via Root Explorer and Logmein Resque. It says that it copies the files successfully but they do not show up in /sdcard/extStorages/SdCard I can however copy the file to /sdcard. Very Strange!
