WARNING ONLY FOR GSM WARNING



I am not responsible for the bricked tabs, backaches, heart attacks or seizures which you may encounter while following these instructions. Do these at your own risk. And this guide is only for gsm galaxy tab GT-P1000 and not any other model.



I found that many people wre facing problems while flashing ics roms on their galaxy tab GT-P1000, so I thought of writing this detailed guide.


First upgrade to a stable build of Gingerbread 2.3.3. Do not use the GB stock safe package from overcome.
Then download this file:

http://www.4shared.com/zip/g-uW6vGt/...Q1-v33-CW.html

Extract it.
Download odin3 v1.7:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=821625
Then open odin3 v1.7
Select CF-Root-TAB7_XX_OXA_JQ1-v3.3-CWM3RFS.zip as PDA
Turn off your tab.
Boot into download mode by holding vol down button and power button together.
Connect your tab to your computer.
Wait for the COM:ID button to glow yellow.(DO NOT CLICK ANYTHING ELSE)
Start flashing.
Wait for the COM:ID to show “PASS”
Download Overcome_7_Series_v4.1.0_NoWipe_3.zip:
http://www.ravishare.com/1fragzl971e...oWipe.zip.html
Then transfer Overcome_7_Series_v4.1.0_NoWipe_3.zip to the your tab.
Turn off your tab.
Boot into recovery mode by holding Vol up and power button together.
Use volume keys to navigate and power button to select “Install zip from sd card” and then “Choose zip from sd card”.
Select Overcome_7_Series_v4.1.0_NoWipe_3.zip.
Select yes.
Wait for flash to complete.
Reboot your tab.
Now download the ics roms like stimpz0r’s AOKP or cdesai’s Cyanogenmod and flash them via recovery.
You have now successfully upgraded your tab to ICS.
Press the thanks button.


And good news. Upgrading to Jellybean does not require you to flash Overcome.

Hi Gogol.
I know you always recommend against using overcome stock safe.
Which gb do you recommend then?

And this guy got his tab into bootloop following your method until he tried overcome gb stock safe and saved.

Well, the problem is that the bootloop occurs if the cwm i mentioned is flashed in the firmware of gb stock safe package. so i recommend against it

If you get stuck in any of the above steps, follow this method to go to stable gingerbread with bml partition.

That means some people on a stable GB will get boot loop using cf method.
Unless you can list all known gb that is unstable... jq1 now in your first.
I still think overcome guide is 100% solid.
Cf method works for some.

Hello! I was doing my first root to my P1000 and noticed a little typo in the guide:

This should be Vol UP

Hi! I have installed AOKP SGT7 - Build 40 using this instructions. The ROM installed fine without problems. However i found out that that i want to revert back to Overcome ROM. I tried to install it via Clockwork Recovery and it installed fine. The problem comes when i try to boot after installation.

After boot, the screen show only the AOKP lauch screen and the tablet doesn't boot.

Do i have to do the flashing with ODIN before attempt to install Overcome ROM again ?
