[GUIDE] Tutorial "How to" flash the Samsung Galaxy Tab FW to enable phone calls

Below you'll find a "step by step" tutorial on how to flash your Samsung Galaxy Tab Firmware to the European version ( unbranded firmware ) and therefore enabling the phone calls option ( and 3G data + 850/1900Mhz WCDMA ) that has been purposely stripped out by certain providers, Ex: Bell, At&t, T-Mobile, rogers etc..



What do you need?
Download the following package:


Code: http://rapidshare.co...lash_Package.7z What's in it?


  • Kies_2.0.0.11011_16_5.exe
  • Odin3 v1.31
  • P1000XWJJ4
  • P1000XXJK5
  • modem_bell_i9000

Preparation:

A. After downloaded the package and extracted with 7zip Install and then reboot: Kies_2.0.0.11011_16_5.exe (this will install properly drivers x86 or 64 depending on your OS configuration, needed for your Tab and Odin to communicate correctly ).

B. Extract Odin3_v1.31_PITupdate and put the all the files contained in P1000XWJJ4 into Odin3 v1.31 source folder.

To change this you will need to edit the build.prop file under /system and change the fingerprint.

If you are lazy you can do the following:

1) root the tab
2) install busybox from the market, open the app and install busybox from within the app.
3) install GST from the market
4) go top step 6 in the app "change your fingerprint" ad run the script
5) go to setting > applications > manage applications > ALL > find "market", force stop and clear data
6) reboot the tab, reopen the market - you should see all apps now.
