Honeycomb 3.2 ROM for Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 3G (GT-P7300).

Thanks to clicka the update is now working. Forgot a small change in the builds.prop that is necessary for the P7300 tablets.
Updated the ROM with small enhancements.
This update can be used only if you already have a Ganbarou GT V0.5a ROM installed. If not, please install first my ROM. This would be a Ganbarou GT V0.5a for Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 GT-P7300.

  • Added Recovery reboot to PowerMenu
  • Browser with UAstring options in the settings menu
  • 6 ROM versions available for 10.1 (P7500), 10.1N (P7501), 8.9(P7300), with original Samsung icons and with AOSP icons
  • The bug with the mouse pointer not visible is fixed as well.
  • The versions with the Samsung icons have now the colored icons in the settings.
  • As a small add-on I included the Photo Browser coming from the Acer Icona tab. Really fast and fancy. Check the video on youtube.

With the help of MikeO and dg5fdg from Android-Hilfe forum I could get my P7500 ROM working on the 8.9er tablet.
My support for this ROM will be limited, as I do not own a Galaxy Tab 8.9. But with your help I think we can solve the problems.

I guess this will be the last Ganbarou GT ROM based on Honeycomb 3.2. As everybody else I am waiting that the CM9 ROM or an IceCreamSandwich ROM from Samsung is coming.

This version of the ROM is based on the XXKL4 stock ROM released for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Italy. It will not change your kernel or recovery. You need to flash them by yourself if you want to change.

You need CWM installed to flash this ROM.

  • Be aware that this is only for the 3G version of the SGT. I cannot test on Wifi, LTE (4G), or 10.1v versions of the tablet. I guess it will not work and you will get into problems.
  • You flash this ROM on your own risk. If you damage your tablet with this ROM I take no responsibility for it.
  • Start SuperUser once after 1st boot to make sure its working correct!
Credits & Thanks:
  • Thanks to LuffarJoh, his application CheckFus gave me the base ROM.
  • Credits for the reboot option in the power menu to designgears (his tutorial helped me to change the power menu)
  • Credits for HoneyComb icons to b00sted. Thank you for the permission to use them in my ROM
  • Special thanks to MikeO and dg5fdg from the Android-Hilfe forum. Without their support this ROM would not exist
Ganbarou GT V0.5a 8.9

Changelog / Features:
  • Added faster launcher from ezcats Fluffy ROM
  • Added ICS animations from ezcats Fluffy ROM
  • Changed to new ROM base XXKL4
  • All apps and Live Wallpapers from the stock ROM

  • - NeedForSpeed Shift (as it was on the original ROM)

No problem to download it from here (germany).


What is the name of the live wallpaper in the opening post (or is it just a wallpaper)? Is it downloadable somewhere?

Great to see a fellow Japanese (you are, aren't you?) Dev.

Downloading now!

Sent from my GT-P7300 using Tapatalk

Flashed and set up.
Using motley's kernel for OC.

Launcher is smooth, no need for Adw anymore.
Wifi connects with no issue.

Thanks for the great alternative!
