Did you unzip it? There should be a tar file inside of the zip, that's what goes in PDA.

Did not find the tar file. Contents were:

dbdata.rfs
modem.bin
cache.rfs
factoryfs.rfs

It sounds like somehow you unzipped then untarred it. If I remember correctly, the tar was inside of the zip. Those files listed are the contents of the tar archive.

Nope. I think the original file must have changed. I followed the download link to the parent directory and also found these in there:

Parent directory: files.deodexed.com/ModADroid-Galaxy-Tablet/T-Mobile/

ATT_Stock.zip 01-Dec-2010 08:43 214456k
P1000-JM6.tar 01-Dec-2010 01:09 326676k
T-Mobile_Stock.zip 29-Nov-2010 20:12 234356k

It might have been repackaged. Is P100-JM6 the tar you are referring to?

Roothammer,
I unlocked my network using the old method that "corrupted" my imei and serial. And of course didn't back up If I flash your tmobile firmware, would that fix them back? Thanks alot for your help, you dont know me but I learned a lot from you.

Thanks

No, the firmware files never include the efs partition since that is different for each phone. No nv_data file on anyone else's tab has your IMEI in it, duh.

Since the IMEI is also on the back of the tab with a little white sticker is there not a way to put it back?

Also, I thought the IMEI was usually stored in hardware and software, does changing the software value really replicate to the tower?

Yes, if you know the encryption algorithm and key used to encrypt the IMEI in the nv_data.bin file.

Anecdotal evidence suggests yes, as anyone with a corrupted IMEI could get internet access using a phone/internet service SIM card for around 30 minutes, then was blocked. As soon as they restored their original nv_data.bin file, they became instantly blocked from the internet.

Anyone getting a pop-up with "Error 1002a" after flashing this FW?
This pop-up stays on top of all apps and only goes with reboot

Thanks
