[SPRINT] Sprint Tablet Owners Thread (Root, ROM, Flash to stock, CWM Recovery)

[SPRINT] Sprint Tablet Owners Thread (Root, ROM, Flash to stock, CWM Recovery) - xda-developers


UPDATES STOPPED: MORE IN-DEPTH THREAD POSTED OVER IN DEVELOPMENT FORUM WITH UPDATED INFORMATION.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1275031


There have been a number of threads regarding working with the Sprint tablet. Due to the lack of support for it, I've complied various items from all across the information tubes to help your get the full use of your Sprint tablet.

I've compiled the instructions from various sources across the internet. If I've failed to reference an item, let me know and I'll correct it.

Something to keep in mind - Heimdall and Odin use different drivers. You WILL NEED to swap between them each time you swap programs. It's unfortunate, but it's necessary.

Flash back to stock (EA24) with Odin
1) Download the files from here
2) Open Odin, and select PDA
3) Choose the appropriate .tar file.
4) Make sure repartition is UNCHECKED!
5) Press start.
6) When the process is finished, the Odin program will say Pass, then Reset.

Install Gingerbread on your Tab
1) Download this file
2) Rename it to update
3) Place it on the root of your SD Card (not in a folder)
4) Boot into recovery and choose "apply update.zip"

Install Rooted Gingerbread on your Tab
1) Download the rooted GB file.
2) Open Odin, and select PDA
3) Choose the appropriate .tar file.
4) Make sure repartition is UNCHECKED!
5) Press start.
6) When the process is finished, the Odin program will say Pass, then Reset.

Root your Sprint Galaxy Tab on FROYO
1) Download SuperOneClick
2) Enable USB Debugging
3) Connect your Tab to the PC
4) Run SuperOneClick
5) Select Root
6) You're rooted!

If you're on Gingerbread, see this thread

Heimdall (needed to flash kernel with CWM)
1) Download Heimdall and unzip
2) Download Microsoft C++ 2010 Redistributable Package
3) Put the Tab in download mode (Vol Down + Power)
4) Connect it to your PC
5) Navigate to your Heimdall folder and run zadig.exe
6) Choose Options>List all devices>Samsung USB Composite Device
7) You'll receive a prompt about the driver, accept to install.

Kernel with CWM Recovery for FROYO
1) Download the zip file here
2) Unzip the file. You will need the file named zimage only.
3) Open Heimdall Frontend
4) Select Browse under Kernel and navigate to the file you downloaded in step 1 and select it
5) Press Start
6) The Tab will reboot, but will freeze on the Samsung logo. Turn it off and boot into recovery (Vol Up + Power)
7) CWM Recovery will attempt to back your tab up, but will fail. Don't fret.
Do a factory reset in CWM Recovery and reboot
9) You'll freeze on the Samsung logo again Turn it off and boot into recovery.
10) CWM Recovery will back your Tab up successfully.
11) You now have a CWM backup. Reboot.
12) Your auto rotate is broken.
13) Download the rotation file
14) Put it in /system/lib/hw and change the permissions to match the other items.

Heimdall/CWM instructions compiled and cleaned up from here

Flashing ROMs
1) Keep in mind that the dev may suggest a specific kernel. See kernel instructions (step 1-5 above)
2) Put the ROM .zip file on the root of your SD Card
3) Choose install .zip from SD Card in CWM Recovery
4) Select the ROM .zip file

ROMs for the Sprint Galaxy Tab
1) Honeycomb - in early stages (Dev - spacemoose)
2) Better than Life - FROYO (Dev - oldmacnut)
3) Future Echoes - GB - (Dev - oldmacnut)
4) MIUI Port - (Dev - oldmacnut)

Finally, each of these steps involves the potential of rendering your device useless. Take care with each step. If you're not 100% comfortable with the process, post your questions. Hopefully, other Sprint owners will take note of the thread and use it.
