I need to downgrade my Galaxy Tab 10.1 (10 inch) from 4.2.2 to 4.0.3 because i need to debug an app on that particular version. Can someone please advice? I am new to all this - but this is what I have learned from browsing this forum:

(1) I will have to root my device
(2) I need the ROM for 4.0.3
(3) I will also need 0din

Anyways, I will appreciate if someone can help me out with instructions and downloads - that will be really helpful.

Thanks!

Thanks for quick reply. I did find the 4.0.3 downloads but I don't see one for the US. Does it matter which one I install?

Update: Oops - I don't find 4.0.3 download for P5113.

Easy dude no root needed as you are going to downgrade to official ICS 4.0.3 and there's no problem in downloading other country Firmware
You can download the ROM from SamMobile, here's the link for it but it's for GSM Version the P5100 if you're wifi version DON'T DOWNLOAD you can search it in Sammobile you'll find it (UK Version) : http://terafile.co/b1925899596b/P510...TUBLF1_BTU.zip
make sure you have the latest usb drivers , you can download it from here :http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2038555
and you can download Odin from here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2189539

Then Extract the Firmware and then Check F.Reset Time and Auto-Reboot Make Sure Re-Partition isnot Checked and then Click PDA on ODIN and Select the extracted tar.md5 file and Click Start then wait for it to finish then you're done downgrading

Well, it seems I am in deeper trouble now - the tablet displays the dreaded "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again."

I tried the recovery mode in Kies - it says that "GT-P5113 does not support initializing."

I tried through 0din too - but even it doesn't do anything to fix this situation.

Looks like that I am now stuck forever with this issue. Can some one please help me out?

Try flash recovery first for your devices, then try to flash the rom again.
