Default [RECOVERY] ClockworkMod Recovery for Galaxy Tab - BETA

THIS IS BETA SOFTWARE
If you don't know what you are doing, don't use this.

Restoring to factory after using this process (you need using stock images):

heimdall flash --kernel stockzImage --recovery stockzImage --factoryfs factoryfs.rfs

TMobile Tab Users:
How it works: The recovery is packaged as an update.zip that you run from a modified STOCK recovery. The update.zip unpacks Clockwork Recovery onto the ramdisk and restarts recovery. When you reboot, it reverts back to the original stock recovery. So, you will need to keep the recovery on the root of your SD card as an update.zip, and apply the zip every time you want to start Clockwork. However, ROM Manager handles this all pretty seamlessly for you.

Installation instructions for TMOBILE TAB:
Download the kernel:
TMobile - http://koush.tandtgaming.com//samsun...tmobile_zImage

Installation instructions:
Flash the kernel using flash_image: http://koush.tandtgaming.com//test/flash_image (This will flash both boot and recovery)
  1. adb push flash_image /data/local/bin/flash_image
  2. adb push tmobile_zImage /sdcard/
  3. adb shell
  4. su
  5. chmod 755 /data/local/bin/flash_image
  6. /data/local/bin/flash_image boot /sdcard/tmobile_zImage
  7. sync
  8. exit # This should take you back to your computer's console

Download ROM Manager from the Market.
Flash Recovery.
Choose the appropriate Galaxy Tab version.
Accept the Superuser prompt.
Use ROM Manager to create a Backup.



Verizon Tab Users:
Want to save your self some command line headaches and risk and donate to a developer? Then go download the Verizon Tab Recovery Bootstrap off the Market and use that instead of this guide.

Download the kernel:
Verizon - http://koush.tandtgaming.com//samsun...verizon_zImage


Installation instructions for VERIZON TAB:
You do NOT need to do this if you used the Bootstrap application
Flash the kernel using flash_image: http://koush.tandtgaming.com//test/flash_image (This will flash both boot and recovery)
  1. adb push flash_image /data/local/bin/flash_image
  2. adb push verizon_zImage /sdcard/
  3. adb shell
  4. su
  5. chmod 755 /data/local/bin/flash_image
  6. /data/local/bin/flash_image boot /sdcard/verizon_zImage
  7. sync
  8. exit # This should take you back to your computer's console
  9. adb reboot recovery # Boot into recovery

It will now convert your rfs partitions to ext4.
Download ROM Manager from the Market.

Euro Tab Users:
Want to save your self some command line headaches and risk and donate to a developer? Then go download the Euro Tab Recovery Bootstrap off the Market and use that instead of this guide.

I bought my Tab in the UK, its not locked to a carrier but I use it on the 3 network. Which of these kernels is the right one for me?

Keep up the good work!

Rom Manager has the ATT recovery but when you try to flash it it says invalid certificates. I'm running JMA firmware.

ATT is not available yet. If you read the instructions, you would see you need to manually replace the kernel first before using ROM Manager.

Default Sprint Tab

Will there be a version for the sprint tab? or can I use the verizon version for the Sprint tab since both are CDMA?

Thanks

Nice... but I'm assuming that this won't work for Euro (P1000) Tabs atm because there's no kernel image listed above?
------------------------------------------------
Nexus 10 -> Sabermod + KTManta kernel

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 -> Stock MJ7 rooted

Samsung Galaxy NOTE II -> wanam lite stock something + devil kernel 4.3

Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 - Overcome 4 @ 1.2ghz

HTC HD2 -> pdaimatejam WP7.5 Mango rom v7.8

Koush congrats on the rom recovery first of all. I must ask since sooner or later it will be asked, what happens for the ones who have the ATT sgt and proceeded to convert to the newer euro rom flash. Are we up a creek without a paddle or will you be developing the rom recovery futher for this kind of situation. Again thanks for your help and my donation will be coming very shortly Koush!!!
