Here is stock update with no root from EC02 to EI04 just rename to update.zip and place on the root of your sdcard boot into recovery by holding volume up while powering on then choose install update.zip

If already on 2.3.5 or a Gingerbread build skip this and go to step 1. if you are running ECO2 or DJ11 to check on your tab go to settings then about device and check the build number the new 2.3.5 apps will not update right and might cause issues just use the above zip to update and then root

1. Download Heimdall Suite

2. You must have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributables installed

3. Download the [ROM][CDMA/VZW][2.3.5]Stock+Root Vanilla rom all credit goes to dsb9938
or
[ROM][CDMA/VZW][GB 2.3.5 EI04+TW4+OC]Galaxy Cubed 3[Full Rebuild 11.21.11] all credit goes to dsb9938

4. Extract all the files downloaded

5. Reboot tab while holding volume down and plug into your pc

6. Open heimdall-suite-1.1.1-win32 folder

7. Open the Drivers folder and run zadig

8. In the zadig application click options then list all devices and in the drop bar choose your tab then click install

9. After the driver is installed successfully open heimdall-frontend

10. place all the files from the stock rom in the correct locations
FactoryFS = factoryfs.rfs
Kernel (zImage) = zImages
Param.lfs = param.lfs
Cache = cache.rfs
Database Data = dbdata.rfs
Recovery = recovery.bin

11. Click Start

12. Immediately after completion you must boot into recovery by holding volume up on reboot

13. Once in recovery mode wipe data/factory and wipe cache partition

14. Reboot when done wiping and your done!

Here is stock update with no root from EC02 to EI04 just rename to update.zip and place on the root of your sdcard

thanks for posting this, im sure it'll help me once i get my tab.

i guess i can safely assume the same steps apply for other roms, just using those specific files instead.

cant wait to give this a try.

Are the correct drivers installed? That's probably your problem I have the 2.3.5 OTA .zip all you would have to do is rename it to update.zip and place on the root of your sdcard and boot into recovery mode I will post if you need it

You should check this rom out it's the first rom to actually impress me http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1325469 I suggest using the stock launcher from 2.3.5 but besides the launcher it's blazing fast I did a CPU benchmark and got 432ms!!! OC at 1300mhz and it has a CWM recovery

A few notes on this method:

When you open zadig, you may have to select Options and check "List All Devices" in order to see your tab listed.

Also, after pressing "Start" on the frontend, I immediately got the message "Failed!" I pressed "Start" again and it all went smoothly.

And then when you reboot into recovery, note that to select any of the options, after choosing them with the vol up/down keys, you have to press the Home button. If you press Settings, you'll get a scary "!" triangle. Just hold power to shut the tab down and reboot.

Worked like a charm, just make sure you load the drivers BEFORE you open up the frontend program! I had to reload the drivers, then start front end again to not get the "failed" message.

Anyway, great job. Very easy!
