Hi All,

I own a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 P3100,recently I rooted it and flashed Ubuntu,it was successful but I was unhappy with what Ubuntu offers me right now.

Now,I want to switch back to the backup which I created when I was on stock.

Will this work

Factory reset --> Wipe Dalvik Cache --> Wipe Everything --> Restore to Stock ROM (Backup)

Everywhere I see here,they mention downloading the stock rom and then installing it with odin. Is it needed?Can't we just restore to a backup with wiping everything?

Please advise!!

Thanks in advance!!

Cool,Thanks for the reply.Today I couldn't wait for too long and I installed it through Odin.Next time When I install a custom ROM I would restore with a previous backup rather than downloading a ROM and installing it with Odin.
