I have already successfully removed the boot and shutdown animations (incl. sound) via "adb shell" commands:
mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtdblock3 /system
mount -o remount,ro /dev/mtdblock3 /system
Btw the tablet now boots much faster.
But the boot splash screen from Samsung is still there.
I've been reading about the methods for other Samsung devices, such as:
flashing a PDA tar with Odin
fastboot flash splash1
packing the logo png as an update.zip
None of these worked.
Instead I bricked my tablet and flashed "P1_20100909.pit" and "GT-P1000_P1000XXJK1.rar" (from samfirmware.com) to make it work again.
Very easy, thanks for the idea! I copied the files to my external SDcard just in case though... Maybe it would be nice for you to remind people of that. Cheers!
