:DDoesn't anybody know how to convert this image file into an update.zip that we could flash via ClockWorkMod? Doesn't any dev want to be the unforgattable hero posting the first instructions for TouchWiz on our beloved Galaxy Tab 10.1?:D

you can restore the img file from backup/restore > advanced option of clockwork recovery! but first copy the img into clockworkmod >backup folder in sd card.

OK, had a spare I/O tab lying around that I use for development and writing apps, so thought I'd try it....This is with Odin3 v1.3...obviously I have a tab that is not full of personal stuff so I just blasted it....If you want to do it on your one and only then for Pete's sake make sure you back up all data and apps before if you feel it's neccessary

Unzipped the file from the download link.
Select the downloaded .tar in PDA in Odin, connect tab and click start...don't hold your breath, you'll probably be dead before it's finished ;)

When the Odin upload has finished the tab boots straight into recovery mode...I had a few warnings regarding efs and sd extension etc. but as this is a wifi only tab and does not have a removable sd card think that is probably normal.
In recovery the installation program automatically formatted the cache...
As I was strting from scratch I did a factory reset just for good measure.

After many years of mac, pc, prologue and now trying app development work I am a firm believer in "If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing properly"....loading upgrade upon upgrade on existing systems eventualy brings said system to it's knees, so better to start afresh.

Hit reboot from recovery and the usual fresh install scenario started with the pulsating Samsung logo as the dalvik was I suppose re-written

Then went to normal initial setup screen which for some reason started in Italian :confused: - I know I eat a lot of pasta and pizza and drink chianti from time to time but that's just ridiculous!!:D

Initial reaction to visual interface was "Wow!" Now I am a bit of a purist and Vanilla lover but I am not blinkered (never joined any of the blind rhetoric "mac is best", "pc is best" blah blah clubs being a scientist by origin) and I have to say in my opinion the visual interface is far better than vanilla honeycomb :eek:

Will run some standard tests and put up screenshots in an hour or so...gotta eat some pasta and drink a couple of bottles of chianti first...

stinky73,

Same result on a Retail Tab 10.1 with a LOCKED bootloader, seeing that it works for me, it should be safe for everyone who wants to try without worrying about a brick.

NOTE: You have to do a factory reset, I got a bootloop but the problem was fixed by the reset

Awesome, can you try and flash the pershoot / bonsai overclock-able kernels and see if they work? Thanks for the info!

The only issue i have seen so far is that the samsung app store says it needs a sim card to be able to run.

So you went straight from a stock tab, flashed this with Odin and now have tochwiz working properly?

I have a Droid Charge, so I'm familiar with Odin, but how do you enter download mode on the tab?

Thanks

Hold down power + Vol Up until you see the 2 options for 'Recover' and 'Download'.

Use 'Vol Up' to select an option
Use 'Vol Down' to enable it

This no longer is available after I flashed the Touchwiz Tar file via ODIN though so if anyone has found a button combo for recovery for it, please let me know.
Thanks.

It still works, but the problem is that you have like half a second to release the buttons before the tab reboots again. I am able to get successfully into recovery if i act quick.

In other news! The root from recovery was successful, This version is rootable by simply flashing the root zip file from the stock recovery.

I have retail version with unlocked bootloader from BB and installed customized recovery (clockworkmod) then connected to my pc with odin3 running. You have to have the custom recovery and i had it when i rooted and unrooted my device.

PS
This version is i think for the 3g model because it has extra settings that is unusable like tethering. The overall experience is very nice and has some very nice functionalities. The UI is very intuitive and has some very poweful apps preinstalled. I am looking forward to the official touchwiz ui and one of the added functionalities i love is the ablity to change the display modes or screen color calibration rendering more natural colors for my photography portfolio. The picture editor is very robust and hopefully the stylus in the works will work like the htc flyer stylus for use their own memo pad.

You just have to install the customized recovery by following the instructions of how to root the device. Just follow until you are able to install the custom recovery then use odin to get touchwiz ux :)

I just tried pershoots kernal, and please note that it does not work, and flashing the tool pack does not fix it. The only way i could find to fix it was to install the tar file from odin again.
