Hi, I've bought a used Samsung GalaxyTab P1000 with Android 2.2. This was my very first Android device and I should have left it as it was, because I don't really know anything about Android. Unfortunately I googled around to see, if a more recent Android Version can be installed on the device. I've found a tutorial describing how to get the official Android 2.3.6 release onto the device using the tool "Odin" (How to Install P1000XWJQ8 Android 2.3.6 Firmware Update on Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 | Android Firmware Updates) (at this time I didn't know about Kies!). Everything worked as described in the tutorial. The Device was detected by Odin, I selected the downloaded 2.36 Image and Odin installed it, ending with a success message. After that, the Tab is stuck in a boot loop. After reading about Kies I tried to connect the Tab to a PC running Kies, but the Software is not able to connect to it. Then I've sent the device to Samsung but I will have to pay 200 Euros to get it repaired. I have paid 160 Euros for the used Tab and for 200 Euros I'll get a GalaxyTab2 now, so I don't really want Samsung to repair it. Now my question: Any ideas to get the Tab on 2.3.6 (or 2.2 factory default) by my own? (Remember: I'm absolutely new to Android, I don't know enything about all that advanced flasing, hacking, modding, modifying things, I've read in this forum. Thanks in advance for your help.
