    Thread First impressions

    I got mine from Amazon yesterday, I already bricked it a few hours ago by messing with the recovery. It should be an easy fix once I get hold of the stock firmware. I got another one coming tomorrow, so I'll focus on just extracting the rom from that one :) Bricking aside, I got 20/10mbs...

    Thread [MODEM] T-Mobile T879UVLF5 Modem Dumps

    Dumped and restored as per http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=22723044&postcount=1 You can't flash this with Odin or CWM. Read the link above. But really, don't bother, it doesnt work anyway. It causes my AT&T Note to be very laggy when launching apps, I'm sure there must be some...

    Thread Antenna tests on T-Mobile

    I disassembled my I717 and T989 to determine if I could find any major differences in the antennas. I managed to connect the coax lead from the base antenna on the I717 to the PCB leading to the corresponding antenna on the T989, but it didn't improve upload performance. I think its the receive...

    Thread [ROM] Roto KA1 [Deprecated: Use Roto-JME instead]

    It was fun while it lasted, but I think we can safely skip KA1. I'll leave everything here for those that want to play, but I'm going back to Roto-JME and crank out a new release of that. Here are the pre-packaged KA1 firmwares, pre-rooted. I am recommending that you flash CF-Root-Tab-KA1 to...

    Thread T-Mobile Modem Switcher

    This is a somewhat hacky way to change modems from your T-Mobile Tab so you can run 3G or Phone&2G when you need to. I'll make this into an Android app when I have time, for now this works just as well, just more steps to install. Edit: Uploaded a new version which shows 2G or 3G in...

    Thread T-Mobile stock firmware!

    Yes, just for you! After 2 weeks of work, I have recreated an Odin package of the stock T-Mobile firmware. Flash it in Odin from the PDA button, no .pit file, nothing else. It contains no bootloader because I don't want anyone to brick their device with a bad flashing. I would like to thank...

    Thread How to carrier/SIM unlock the Galaxy Tab [Updated Dec 5 2010]

    Background: I unlocked my Tab first by hex editing my nv_data.bin file. It was perfect, my IMEI and device serial number were unharmed. Then I got my official unlock code from Tmobile. So I reverted to my original nv_data.bin, placed an AT&T SIM into the Tab and it rebooted, I entered the code...
