Thanks

Honestly, I see the email FC's all the time when I go back to stock. I usually ignore them since I'm only on stock for a short time. Potentially a data wipe could fix them? Not 100% certain, though.

I've been seeing that error for so long that my brain has just learned to ingore it (isn't that weird?).

cwm might already be gone, if you flashed back to stock. If it's not, I have a 3588 stock ROM update.zip you can try here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1005080 (PART 3).

THIS procedure worked very well for me. Unfortunately, I'm returning my Gtab tomorrow and I wanted to return it to stock. Because I had CWM, I had a difficult time going by the first procedure (which is weird because I've rooted and unrooted my phones with ease.) The procedure from the other thread may have helped in its way because I lost root. Because of that, I was able to just flash this file, then the 3588 file. Worked very easily.

That seems to have deleted CWM THANK You. Sad to be sending my GTab back but it has to be.

You need nvflash. If not you are screwed. Use virtualbox and setup linux to use nvflash. You are looking at a quick operation to get your gingerbread on.

Do I delete the update.zip and recovery folder AFTER upgrading it to 3588 ? This is so that I can flash it to other roms ?

Thanks

Recovery command file erases itself, so that way you won't accidentally re-run. But you can safely delete the update.zip as well, if you want.

These were grabbed from my over-the-air update. They are full recovery images that wipes everything except the user data.

NOTE: These are only for 1.0.1 or 1.1 based stock versions. For 1.2 based stock versions, they will be hosted in the same location as my 1.2-based mods./[/url]

===================================


Instructions for use with the internal memory:

1- Mount your device to your PC

2- Download the ROM you wish you use, and save it to the root of the mounted drive. Rename it to "update.zip"

3- Create a folder on your mounted drive callled "recovery".

4- In that recovery folder, create a file called "command", and add this line to that file:

Code:
--update_package=SDCARD:/update.zip
NOTE to Windows users: If you use notepad, it might name the file "command.txt". That won't work. It cannot have a file extension. I would recommend downloading and using the excellent program "notepad++" as a notepad replacement.

5- Shutdown the device and then boot into recovery (Hold Power button and volume up key for a few seconds). If you are using standard recovery, the install should run automatically. If you are using clockworkmod, you will need to manually choose the update.zip file.

6- Reboot when completed (standard recovery users will be rebooted automatically).

Other note: These stock ROMs WILL flash recovery, as they are designed to do that. If you are using clockworkmod, that recovery tool will most likely be wiped out. Also, if you experience a boot loop post-install, you won't have clockworkmod installed to correct it - there are ways to install a clockworkmod image off your microSD, if necessary, then wipe your user data. Most times, these reboot hangs are due to incompatible data partitions between mods - this is especially true for ROMs like gADAM.

This should have the 1.2 firmware too. then it should be renamed and sticked

I think goodintention's site is a good resource, for all things GTAB. I'll leave it at that.
