Hello guys,

so I've seen others do this before, and I thought, I should be able to do that too I'm a computer geek by training, but never got very deep in Linux/Android hacking.

Anyways, I made a CWM-flashable zip out of the Odin package for the latest ICS for P7300. (PDA: P7300XXLQ6; CSC: P7300OXALQ6; "OpenAustria")

Odin package: (source sammobile)
info: http://www.sammobile.com/firmware/?page=8&view=8417
download: P7300XXLQ6_P7300OXALQ6_ATO.zip (from hotfile)

I initially flashed the Odin package on my tab, and kept all my userdata, user apps, and even my homescreens. But I came from official, odin-flashed P7310UELPB ICS for USA released 3 months ago (yes, that's wifi-only, but runs fine on P7300); so that may have an influence.
If you are concerned about the integrity of your device, I do recommend you install the Odin package, as it is straight from Samsung, so you can be assured not to suffer from the error injected by anyone else (not that I made any errors, mind you ).

CWM-flashable package: (by direct conversion from the Odin package - no modification, not rooted, nothing added/removed/altered)
downloads:
- ROM: P7300XXLQ6-ROM.fred-v01.zip (for links, see post #3)
- MODEM: P7300XXLQ6-Modem.zip https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D6778724_7163149_619563

48f9d2b048c2416d84ecdfcea904a434 P7300XXLQ6-Modem.zip


How to install
- if coming from stock ICS or HC, I suspect only wipe /cache is needed. From any other ROM (like CM or AOSP) I suspect you need a /data wipe (warning: deletes all your application data; but not your /sdcard)
- flash from any CWM recovery (I tested only 5.1.2.6). Turn OFF signature validation, as these zips are not signed. It took about 3-5 minutes on my tab
- (ps: the updater-script was borrowed from a recent kallt_kaffe ROM, so it's pretty bog-standard Just added a few outputs to show progress)

Other info
- the Odin package also includes a newer bootloader. I don't know if it's essential to have that newer bootloader, but I can add it later.
- It may not be necessary to flash the MODEM, but I would recommend keeping the MODEM+ROM combination.

Optional additions & tweaks
- any root package should work. (Update: I recommend either v3.1.3 or 3.2 from the original developer of Superuser: http://androidsu.com/superuser/ )
- if you have rooting problems, first uninstall other root packages, including superuser/superSU updates from Market. There is an "unroot" procedure in the sticky on General forum.
- you can get voice-call mod by flashing these 2 from cwm

* the I9103 modem - http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1347032493
- if you hate the boot sound, remove/rename the /system/etc/PowerOn.ogg
- fix for system freezes: see FAQ link under "reading"
- fix for wifi: see tracid's thread linked under "reading"
- OCUV kernel: see AAccount's thread for A1 kernel (careful, some versions work only on stock, others work only on cm10/aosp versions. Use e.g. the well-tested 1.7.3; or the much less tested 1.8.3c. Read carefully his posts and know that custom kernel involves experimentation, trial&error and potential instability)
- attached to this post is a flashable zip to easily return to stock XXLQ6 kernel (or you could flash the who ROM again, if you want)

Interesting reading
A MUST: my FAQ regarding ICS issues (especially if you are first time upgrading from HoneyComb to ICS)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1895496

tracid's thread - he had the first "stock" ICS for P7300 2 months ago (it required a heroic effort to pull the update from an OTA package, that was available on Samsung servers, but not being pushed out by Samsung). As such, his thread (and esp the first post) has lots of useful info for Stock ICS on P7300, gathered over last 2 months.

Returning a favor?
PS: I use SugarSync cloud storage for sharing this file - and will keep it there as long as I can. Help me keep the file alive by creating your own SugarSync account with THIS link (we both get 500mb extra - but only if you install the app on computer or smart device): https://www.sugarsync.com/referral?rf=cw2yimm8cchga. I also spend 10 hours of my life making this conversion, most of it in the middle of the night, so that must count for something, right

Alternatively, hit thanks - it gives a warm feeling too

screenshot attached, unfortunately xda resized it to 640x400


Update 2012-12-25:
I received twice the question "what is the difference between this and tracid's rom". (e.g. here

Both are stock ROMs from Samsung with no modifications. (tracid added root, busybox; but this can be easily added yourself on this ROM as well)...

tracid's ROM = ZSLP7, regional variation: Taiwan. Obtained by *manually* applying an OTA file found on sammobile, to the P7300ZSKK2 honeycomb ROM. Samsung never officially pushed out the ZSLP7 as far as we know; so it may have been an internal test build.
here = XXLQ6, regional variation: Austria; An official and distributed build, as far as we know.

Samsung is not releasing changelogs, so the actual differences are hard to find, other than the fact that different regions (have slightly different set of added application (e.g. kobo, Polaris, ...). XXLQ6 came with swype keyboard. Not sure if ZSLP7 came with that.

Most importantly, XXLQ6 has a more recent build date, and seems to be officially distributed, so one can *assume* it has more fixes.

initial hosting on sugarsync broken: files blocked because of a "Fair Usage" violation. Probably it broke the "10GB per day max download on Free accounts" limit that I was not aware about

For a limited time, you can get the files from my Adrive (no download limit, but only 10 concurrent downloads possible - links expire after 14 days) / links valid 2012-12-22 until 2013-01-05
ROM: http://www.adrive.com/public/BAMDga/...XLQ6-Modem.zip
MODEM: http://www.adrive.com/public/srnfuF/...M.fred-v01.zip (830 downloads until 2012-12-22)

User x24 has a mirror up -> see his post on page 3: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9&postcount=25

here are md5's in case anyone wants to mirror/verify.

Thank You a lot for the upload because today is the second day that I try to download the Odin Package of this P7300XXLQ6 Rom... But without success... This Hotfile link is "out of ordrer" since 2 days...

Your "NON Odin package" is only around 400Mo and the Odin package is around 600Mo... Is it normal?

about smaller size... The odin package is poorly compressed. Also, it contains some 100mb stuff that does not get installed, at least not on my tab (these are mostly demo apk in a hidden.img - I can make them available, but as I said, they were not even installed on my tab)

installed in on my P7300 tab just now and it's running okay. I did not do any factory reset. Just wipe cache, as stated in OP, coming from stock honeycomb. Um. But I always run into "Android is updgrading, optimising application 1/1" every reboot. is that normal?

UPDATE:
Upon installing the kk_root_ics.zip, tab won't respond after some seconds. I reflashed the rom and it responded fine again.

Optimizing apps is the message when creating the dalvik-cache for a deodexed APK. It should happen after initial install, and then again if you add apps through recovery or so. E.g. I got it (once only) after flashing root package, as this added superuser.apk.

Other than the ROM itself, what else have you flashed (the more exact, the better to diagnose)

Even if I didn't install from CWM, it always show the optimising app 1/1. I'll further check since I'm always trying to root my tab to no avail.

I tried flashing different ROOT.ZIP, including the link on OP, on CWM, and it ALWAYS hangs after some seconds after apps has been loaded. Opening an app right after boot will also end up the tab not responding.

I only flashed ROM+MODEM then reboot. Everything runs well. but whenever I flash a flashable cwm file to root the tab, that's when I experience the hang.

Update:
Tried to odin CF-Root, but failed. Got stuck on "Leave CS" thrice~ and stuck on 1/8 progress bar so I flashed the rom again.

Update 2:
I uninstalled SuperSU and Superuser from tab. I then flashed Stock Recovery (from here) via Odin. Flashed kk_root_ics.zip and booted okay. I found Superuser installed. But when I try to update binary, it says failed. I downloaded superSU, and it also failed to install the binaries.

See my FAQ. There's a bug in many stock Samsung ics, that mean that any application FC, leads to full OS hang. I made a fix for that....

As for the optimizing 1/1 on boot: might be a corrupted apk file on your data partition.
