Below you'll find a "step by step" tutorial on how to flash your Samsung Galaxy Tab Firmware to the European version ( unbranded firmware ) and therefore enabling the phone calls option ( and 3G data + 850/1900Mhz WCDMA ) Tested and working for the following tabs: Bell, Rogers.



What do you need?
Download the following package:

What's in it?
  • Kies_2.0.0.11011_16_5.exe
  • Odin3 v1.31
  • P1000XWJJ4
  • P1000XXJK5
  • modem_bell_i9000


Preparation:

A. After downloaded the package and extracted with 7zip Install and then reboot: Kies_2.0.0.11011_16_5.exe (this will install properly drivers x86 or 64 depending on your OS configuration, needed for your Tab and Odin to communicate correctly ).

B. Extract Odin3_v1.31_PITupdate and put the all the files contained in P1000XWJJ4 into Odin3 v1.31 source folder.




C
. Set you Samsung Tab into "Download mode" ( Hold volume down and power button until the device boot up. You'll see a yellow android sign and some warning text like :do not turn off target) and connect it to your PC with the USB cable.

D
. Start Odin3 v1.31.exe and make sure that the com post is yellow highlighted and check off Re-partition.

E
. Load the following files as shown in the screenshot below:



F. Hit Start and then relax, hopefully it is going to be ok and in about 2. min and 50 you'll get a green highlight and pass stamp in the same Odin screen which will also reboot the Tab. It will be In Russian, but not to worry. keep reading below.


G. Turn offf the tab and set it to download mode again. Transfer over the Odin folder the P1000XXJK5.tar file re-start Odin, Connect the phone.




H. Leave the "Re-partition" unticked and load into "PDA" the tar file. Hit "Start" and wait again about 2min and 50 sec, you'll get the same green pass and the tab will reboot.




I. This is the final step. now you are going to flash the tab with the right Modem files. Again like Put the Tab into download mode unpack the modem_bell_i9000.zip into Odin folder then start Odin up and select "phone". Load the modem.bin up and hit Start. Wait for the Green pass and you are DONE!!!

To change this you will need to edit the build.prop file under /system and change the fingerprint.

If you are lazy you can do the following:

1) root the tab
2) install busybox from the market, open the app and install busybox from within the app.
3) install GST from the market
4) go top step 6 in the app "change your fingerprint" ad run the script
5) go to setting > applications > manage applications > ALL > find "market", force stop and clear data
6) reboot the tab, reopen the market - you should see all apps now.

Questions:

1/ Does the tab need to be rooted first?

2/ Does this method work for any U.S. and Canada Tab? Or is this for a specific carrier/brand? (I plan to buy a Sprint Galaxy Tab from a friend and it is rooted)
