No probs with my SG2

Mine is running on kies with no problems. If useful I have win 7 and downloaded kies from Samsung website.

For Q3, found a slightly easier way via the "update.zip" method over at this thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1458021

It's under Tab 7 Plus forum but I've tried it and it works for Tab 7.7 as well.

This is good. The original poster noted that the method "won't work for a device that doesn't have CWM Recovery installed." What about your own 7.7: was it rooted and did you have CWM Recovery installed when you use the update.zip?

Yes, my Tab 7.7 is rooted, using the root.zip method discussed here. And yes also to the second, I installed the CWM Recovery 5.0.2.7 discussed here.

What is the LOST.DIR folder?

Can the folder itself or the files within them be removed?

Is there a safe way to remove the tablet from the connection a computer via USB?

Not sure.

I've always just pulled my USB cable out. Doesn't seem to be any issue. I suppose it's more proper to effect it on the PC first.

Windows doesn't have an "eject" or "safely remove hardware" option for devices connected via MTP--at least, not one like it does for HDDs, flash drives, or other USB mass storage devices. As long as you're not using the connection it's fine to just unplug it.

Yep, I just doublechecked and there is no eject option. So I guess I wasn't being lazy all this while after all.

Checked around and it seems the LOST.dir contains file/fragments that were recovered during file system check at each startup. It should be ok to delete the files in the LOST.dir.
