Samsung Galaxy S :: Flashing A Samsung Tablet P1000
Aug 20, 2010
I'm an Android developer who is working with the upcoming Samsung P1000 tablet. I have to say that I haven't worked with Samsung Android devices so far. This is a developer/Engineer sample but I have real rough time to get a contact person at Samsung to help me solve this in a fast way, so I'm asking to the community :-)
The thing is I was trying my application while developing and every certain time I found the phone memory almost full (I think the tablet is saving all of its logs in a very verbose way in /data/logs where I haven't permission to access, and also it hasn't a micro sd inserted). The first time this happened I just did a factory reset from the OS itself.
The second time has been today and the phone was so full of data it didn't start at all. I was viewing the logs with adb logcat and Android was unable to start. He was trying and trying again (like in a loop) but only the Android logo was shown. I found the lack of memory to be the reason for this:
W/BatteryStats( 2949): Error writing battery statistics

The tablet can't write anything on the system, so it fails at booting and tries again, and again...
I did a factory reset via ADB with adb reboot recovery. Then the phone shows the recovery menu but no matter what option I choose (reboot, factory reset, update.zip or wipe cache) because the device doesn't seem to be doing anything but keeping the screen in black. If I turn off the device then it goes again to the recovery menu.
So I was stuck with the Android logo screen, and now I'm stuck in the recovery screen.
I thought flashing the phone would help so I turn it on in upload mode pressing the 2 volume buttons together (Power reset or unknown upload mode it says). This way the phone is recognized by Odin Multidownloader. I just grab a leaked firmware for this upcoming tablet from this Web The rar file only contains a SS_DL.dll and a OXA.tar. The tar contains some files: modem.bin, zImage, param.lfs, cache.rfs, dbdata.rfs and factory.rfs.
I've never used Odin nor flashed an android samsung phone so probably I'm doing something wrong. I tried to load the tar as the phone image it gives me an error, I also tried to load it as a single package but also failed.
So at this point I'd be most than grateful if anyone can share his ideas on this almost bricked tablet :-P
Edit: That "upload mode" was a fault of me, probably volume down was released while booting. I have the device in download mode but Odin keep me saying check image files, Any idea??
I have flashed the GT-P1000 tab with clockworkmod version 6 (i am not sure the exact version) using Odin.Now after flashing the recovery, I have successfully installed Cyanogenmod 11 (nightly build) and everything was successful and everything is great.
A friend of mine borrowed the tab and he put a pattern to lock the phone, instead of asking him what is the pattern I just decided to wipe the tab again to make a clean install. So what I did was I went to recovery and selected "format /system" which I shouldn't have, then after rebooting it is not booting up to Cyanogen anymore, so what i did was I just wiped everything (format /data, cache and factory reset)
Now this is the weird part, the devices has kept on booting up to clockwork recovery and it says the device is not yet rooted, it is asking me if it is ok to root it, I always selected yes
After another boot up, the clockwork recovery is now version 220.127.116.11??? it is really weird? I never installed any clockwork mod with a lower version... How did that happen?
Now whenever I try to install from sd card or restore it or mount it nothing happens, it just says:
E:Can't mount E:unknown volume E:unable process volume! skipping
I tried to flash the recovery again using Odin many times but still the clockwork mod is stuck in version 18.104.22.168.
Right now, I am not sure if my understanding of the entire system is correct:
1. Should I install a new recovery, if yes, how and why is it whenever I am installing it again it is not being installed, it gets stuck to version 22.214.171.124?
2. Are there any other recovery I should use and how should I install it? is it the same as using the Odin?
3. Is there a way to install the original recovery of this tab and then from there I will start over again.
II would like to flash my Samsung Galaxy 3 (right now Froyo) to use it with Kyrillos' ROM v7.5 under Mac OS Lion.
The only program capable of that I found (in this forum) is the Wineskin'ed version of Odin (v3 1.85). But that does not detect my phone in download mode and also has other buttons than the version Kyrillos speaks of in his manual (there you are asked to "select ops", while the Mac version of Odin only lets you select "PIT"s or chose a .tar-file for one of "BOOTLOADER", "PDA", "PHONE" and so on).
So, three questions:
1. How can I get that version of Odin to recognize my phone?
2. What do I have to select in that version of Odin after solving question 1?
3. Otherwise, are there alternatives to use (except a Windows computer or a virtual machine running Windows)?
Tablet is a GT-P7500 Samsung Galaxy 10.1...Was going to be installing a new ROM on my tablet, problem is I though I had transferred the files onto the old tablet, but I had accidentally transferred them to my new tablet. So I opened up CWM and wiped everything. Then went to install from zip and the files weren't there. So I cant boot back into android to transfer the files. I can't boot into adt either and sammobile new hosting site terafile wont allow me to download any of the original files to flash with odin as it keeps coming up with Wrong IP.
Currently it loads to the splash screen showing Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and sits there.Any links to a ROM I can flash through ODIN. Or a way to transfer files onto a dead tab?
I was wondering if there's any way to put restrictions on a Samsung galaxy tab such as only being able to use the web browsing ... So i would like to disable the use of the android market etc. For school purposes (dont want my students playing games downloading etc etc).
On my Samsung galaxy s3 I have 2 flashing arrows under my wifi bar.. I went to Samsungs chat and the first time I was told that it was because I was transfering data but I wasn't. She then told me to do a soft reset so it did and it still continued. Then I went back on because the first person told me it would eat up my data if I didn't break the transfer. The second lady said that all that means is that it's showing that it's connected to my router and is normal and won't use my data..
I have Samsung Galaxy S GT-S7562 After rooting and flashing KyleOpen custom rom, the mobile worked just fine but there's no network while calling or receiving a call.. I went to maintenance service and they told me that it needs New main motherboard or something
I have an i9000M (Bell) Galaxy S that is unlocked. I have had different versions of Froyo on the phone in the last couple of months, Currently, I have JPO and it is working fine.
My first question is, Is there a generic (Non Bell, Orange, Att, etc.) version of Android that works on any android phone? Also, what about a version that works on any brand of phone, sort of like WIndows on a PC. I know there are a sh*t load of different phones out there, but I was wondering if a generic version would work.
Question #2, Can I flash a European version of Froyo onto my Canadian phone?
everytime i installed a custom ROM preferrably CM7 Apocalypse, i always lost my data connection, i dont know why this thing happen, then last time i installed CM7 Apocalypse again (changelog dated 9/7/2012 by itasoulas) i still lost Data Connection though i follow the instructions given, plus i cant receive a message even though i installed a messaging app. im tired im reflashing my phone back to Stock Rom over and over again .
I flashed with "CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar.zip" and the the rooting as per this [URL] and it was successful.
But I installed font installer and gave access via superuser and after reboot, it dint turned on ( stuck on bootloader "Samsung")..
So I flashed SGG with stock rom via Odin and the phone got on, and again tried to flash "CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar.zip" but this time , i dint got the CWM. I am getting android system recovery instead on CWM... I cant root again!!
I tried flashing "CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar.zip" 3 time but only bin counter is rising.. i am getting android system recovery 3 <e> only...
I want to be able to pull in google plus photos when using photoshop touch and autostitch apps etc. But their import options only access local folders on my device. I can download individual photos one at a time to a generic download folder from google plus to use, not full albums. When I try to create a new folder in gallery, and move the Picasa/Google Plus photos I get a notice saying "unsupported file." I read somewhere that there should be an option in gallery that makes photos available offline, but I don't have that. Just basically trying to be able to organize and download my g+ photos for use with these apps, in a less time consuming way.
Im using a galaxt tab GT-p1000 3g froyo 2.2 which is bought from dubai . there were few issues since last few weeks where i could not boot the device. I have done the factory reset few times also.

On my droid phone, I get what I consider a proper pause/stop/resume/restart sequence when the home button is pressed and I then select my application. However, I'm testing on a new Samsung Galaxy tablet and when I select my application after having pressed the home button, a new activity is being launched. I do not understand why the behavior is different on the Galaxy. Any ideas? I have removed orientation config changes in the manifest, so it's not that.
Alright this may have been asked a few times, or maybe it could not of been asked. I just can't find the thread related to answering this question. Okay so my question is, can I flash Galaxo 1.6.2 or GAOSP "without" ODIN flashing or updating my firmware to 1.6? and not then what consequences would occur if I don't flash firmware update before GALAXO 1.6.2 flash. My phone firmware version is I7500ZHJA1 and I believe that is the latest firmware for my region which is still Android 1.5.
My Samsung Galaxy Reverb has nobody willing to build CM10 for it, so I decided to take on the task. It built without error - processed the kernel and all the CyanogenMod 10 files just fine and generated the .zip. However, after flashing the .zip I end up with a Samsung logo, then a black screen.
The compile went through without error, so I'm a little lost as to what I should check next. From doing a little searching it seems the kernel is at fault, but what to do about that. Am I supposed to flash the kernel separate from the .zip that the CM builder outputs?
When connecting my Galaxy-S to the Samsung Kies software, my telephone shows up with an incorrect telephone number. I did change the sim-card (and subsequent number) since first using it, but I never logged intio Kies with the old sim-card.The phone is rooted.How do I get Kies (or my Samsung phone) to show my current telephone number?In the phone properties (Menu, Settings, About, Status) the same wrong number is shown.When calling, the receiver sees the correct telephone number. So the issue is not operator related but telephone related.
Samsung should stop promoting the Galaxy Tab and fix the Galaxy S phones.Tab is running 2.2 and most likely has a fixed GPS.While the rest of us who paid for a product still have not gotten our money's worth.
I have configured my Samsung Galaxy S using my normal Gmail account. This has helped me to sync the Google Contacts with my phone.
Following are my questions:
1. Right now I have about a thousand google contacts synced to my phone. I want to remove them at one go. I know how to disable them from being appearing in contact list, but I want to know if I can delete them without going to factory settings.
2. I am using three applications (a) Gmail (b) Contacts (3) MVOIP. I want to know if there is a way that following combination works: a- Google contacts appear on Gmail app b- Google contacts (with phone numbers) and normal phone contacts appear on "Contacts" c- Google contacts (with phone numbers) and normal phone contacts appear on "MVOIP application".
I know how to do
(a) - By synchronising google contacts, (b) - by choosing display options (c) - I do not know how to handle this and I want help.
