    LOL, you are messing up again, dear !
    STOP and read the following carefully !

    DON'T :
    1> Don't try anything until we discuss and agree on a good path to take.
    2> Don't download any rom, kernel, or utility (like Calkulin Format) until we discuss. The ones you mentioned are NOT COMPATIBLE with your 1.2 bootloader.
    3> Don't take any action until you understand fully.

    If you want Vegan Ginger, then here is what you do:

    DO:
    a> Go to this link [ROM][BL1.2] Gingerbread Rom Collection for Bootloader 1.2 Gtablet\Zpad T2 - xda-developers, and download VEGAn-GE-7.0.0-RC1(GB2.3.3, stable build): http://www.mediafire.com/?8xur9w9wh5i4j94 .
    The file name is VEGAn-GE-7.0.0-RC1-Harmony-signed-pershoot-bl1.2.zip. Then download gapps:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?7yrr1b2sce6sw8l . The file name is gapps gb 20110307 signed.zip
    b> Look at step 4 in post #13 above. Do it.
    c> Look at step 5 in post #13 above, Do it with the new files that you just downloaded.
    d> Look at step 6 in post #13 above. Do it with the file VEGAn-GE-7.0.0-RC1-Harmony-signed-pershoot-bl1.2.zip.
    When it completes, do it again with the file gapps gb 20110307 signed.zip

    When both the flashings are done, select 'Reboot System Now" on the main menu.

    Just do the above, nothing else, and get back.

    Dave,

    If you followed the instructions that I provided in this thread, then you are on 1.2.4349 stock rom, which is 1.2 bootloader.
    Go to Settings ---> About Phone and tell me what rom version you have.
    Don't do anything else until we are DEFINITELY sure what bootloader you have.

    Good, follow the instruction in post #19 carefully.
    If in doubt, ask before taking any action. Agree ?

    Do not unzip.
    Boot into CWM.
    Connect to PC.
    Copy those two files to tablet.
    Select 'install zip from sd card', select the rom, press the home button to flash it.
    Then select 'install zip from sd card' again, select the gapps file, press the home button to flash it.
    After the flashing is done, select 'Reboot System Now' . . . . . . DO NOT SELECT REBOOT INTO RECOVERY or the tablet will mess up BAD.

    Yes, always make sure to avoid unnecessary error.

    Do not unzip.
    Boot into CWM.
    Connect to PC.
    Copy those two files to tablet.

    Select 'install zip from sd card', select VEGAn-GE-7.0.0-RC1-Harmony-signed-pershoot-bl1.2.zip, press the home button to flash it.
    This will install both Vegan rom and Pershoot kernel.

    Then select 'install zip from sd card' again, select gapps gb 20110307 signed.zip, press the home button to flash it.
    This will install all google apps

    After the flashing is done, select 'Reboot System Now' . . . . . . DO NOT SELECT 'REBOOT INTO RECOVERY' or the tablet will mess up BAD.
