Some basic questions about Galaxy Tab 8.9
I recently purchased a Galaxy Tab 8.9. Now, I have a few beginner's questions to ask before I go ahead.
I would like to root my Galaxy Tab 8.9. How easy is it? And how easy is it to screw it up? Will I cause a permanent damage to the device if I screw it up? Is screwing up or permanent damage such as hard brick even possible?
I would also like to install ICS/CM9 on it. But, I also intend to use this device for Video calls over VOIP (using Skype). I believe that that this device does NOT have official ICS yet. But is it going to get one (i.e. Samsung planning to upgrade this and if so, is there a timeline?). And I also note that ICS/CM9 ROMs don't have camera working. Is there a way to work around this so that I may run CM9 and still have camera? Else, what is the best ROM you guys suggest for a person who needs a usable camera?
I want to be careful with this device, as I just bought it and I don't want to screw it up and end up with a $400 paper weight. So, please let me know if it is safe to root and install ROMs on it.
Thank me, if my post helped you, made you smile, laugh, LOL or ROFL!!!
