Since no one posted here yet, I will.

THIS IS STRICTLY FOR SPRINT TAB ONLY.

Here is all the step you need to get your tab updated to Gingerbread. Thanks to ZoinksS2k for the guide and pvtjoker42 for the file.

First you have to have stock EB28 on the tab. If not follow these steps:

  1. Download the E24 flasher
  2. Find a copy of Odin (1.3 worked for me)
  3. Extract the flasher, look in \Models\Binary, strip the .MD5 extension from the file SPH-P100.EA24.SECURE.REV07-FULL_CL871413.tar.md5
  4. Load Odin
  5. Connect device via USB
  6. Reboot into recovery (power off, hold power and down volume keys or do a "adb reboot download")
  7. Select the newly renamed .TAR file in the PDA slot in Odin
  8. Select start (flashing should commence)
  9. Boot, then you will be prompt for EB28 update, allow the EB28 update to complete

Then follow these step to update to Gingerbread:

  1. Download the Gingerbread update (Special thanks to pvtjoker42 :) for this. Source)
  2. Copy the update_from_EB28_to_EF17.zip file to the root of your SD card, rename it to update.zip
  3. Reboot into recovery (power off, hold power and up volume keys or do a "adb reboot recovery")
  4. Use volume rocker to select apply update.zip (or whatever)
  5. Touch the home button to select

NOTE: If you got stuck during the update, try to reformat the sd card with your tab or use a different one, then try again

Warning: You will lose root on the tab, and there is not a solution to root Gingerbread yet...

Enjoy!

Downloaded, renamed and flashing using the recovery.

Now I'm at a screen with little android with triangle with ! sign..
is this normal?

I had to reformat the SD card on the tab itself and then try the update.zip in recovery. Don't reformat the card via windows, that didn't work for me.

I posted this in the GB update thread as well.....


Can someone pull a nandroid, and a roto for me of the sprint gb stock after install, pm me and ill give you an ftp account to upload it.

Make sure....for the love of god, please remove your personal data first.

I could use a clean system dump to start on some roms in gb.

Do a Factory reset before you do a nandroid or a roto. That way no personal data will be there before you send it to Oldmacnut

Sorry for the noob question but can you instruct how to do this? Would save me sometimes researching. Thanks

I dont have root or cwm. Everything installed fine. The only possible issue I see that wasnt happening with ea24 and eb28 is the battery isnt charging when connected to a computer. There is a red X in the battery. Before, this happened when I had cwm 3000 on with eb28. When I flashed back to complete stock and only rooted, it started charging through usb like it used to. Can anyone say if they are experiencing this also? I am thinking something is not right here.

Hey darkpal, its oldmacnut not oldmacunt. Lol

To my knowledge the Tab will NOT charge via computer USB. It has to be plugged in to the stock power adapter. Something about the voltage or amperage (I don't remember which) is too low from a pc USB port. It will run off the USB without draining the battery, but it will not charge.

It was charging fine via USB in Froyo builds EA24 and EB28, so this must be some kernel issue with EF17. We should report this to Sprint and Samsung (and Google?) as an issue.

Google patched the Gingerbreak exploit so we'll most likely only see root once there is a custom kernel. Hopefully we'll see that soon..

Speaking of custom kernels, are there any developers working on that? Kernel sources for Sprint Tab were released by Sprint/Samsung last week, but I haven't seen any interest on XDA.

IMO... Tab looks the same as before. Are there any differences than Froyo besides it saying build: Gingerbread & battery not charging with usb? I just changed SD cards and it updated fine.

Edit: Quadrant Advance running @ 1615

I don't know if it's my imagination or not but it seems like the four action buttons on the bottom aren't registering a touch as easy as they used to. Reminds me of my old moment. I'm clearly touching dead center of it yet nothing is happening right away. Speed wise, I'm not noticing anything of an improvement.

Guys, need your help!

The following are the steps i tried, and failed:

Step 1. 2GB Micro SD - Lexar
Formatted FAT32 - NO GO
Formatted inside my tab - NO GO

I figured may be the card is bad

Step 2. 2GB Micro SD - Kingston
Formatted FAT32 - NO GO
Formatted Inside my tab - No Go

I figured may be because i am 'rooted', so i wiped the tab clean (Power + Vol UP), Wipe Cache clean

Step 3. 8GB Micro SD - SanDisk
Formatted FAT32 - No GO
Formatted Inside my tab - NO GO

Problem: the update goes about 1/4 and then the triangle with "!" appears :(

I dont mean to sound like a dufus, but can anyone point me to the right directions?

Thank you

    im assuming someone is working on the root? :]

    Google patched the Gingerbreak exploit so we'll most likely only see root once there is a custom kernel. Hopefully we'll see that soon..

    oh well lets be rude for someone attempting to help another whom has an issue following directions :)

    I was not trying to be rude, just Real. LOL

    man... if someone can give me a zip aligned deodexed rom via zip file, I will be very thankful...

    I want my root and I want to theme it up...

    I'm hoping that we'll see a custom kernel w/root and CWM soon. Android devices aren't just useful, they're fun! And once you've got the itch to change and tweak em, it's hard to stop.. :)

    Also, when you work with ODIN, how long does it stay on "modem.bin" ?



    Thank you

    Here is the ODIN3 I use on my Windows 7 64BIT and I have sucess flashed my SPH-P100.
