    Default P1010 wifi only ROM question

    Hi,

    I bought a Galaxy Tab GT-P1010 7” WIFI only in China (yeah that’s where I live) and have rooted it.

    I can’t download apps from android market, but can usually find somewhere to download them onto the PC, it’s a drag, but not that difficult and time consuming.

    My problem is, I really need to use a VPN, but the tab won’t allow me to do so. I sent the log to my VPN provider, and they say that the tab is blocked from using any VPN.

    So, I reckon my only option is to install a new ROM, and start again hopefully with access to android market and the use of a VPN.

    So my questions are:

    Which ROM do I use?

    What is the procedure?

    What are the chances of ‘bricking’ the tab?

    If things go wrong, will ‘factory reset’ take it back to the original settings?

    I’m sorry if these questions have been asked before, I’ve certainly searched everywhere I can, but with no definite answer.

    Thanks in advance for any help / advice / flames / …….

    WOW that was a quick reply!

    I've seen this before on my travels, but am not sure where to 'press' it. I thought it would be for a phone dialer or something. suppose i'm wrong though.

    From the 'about device' tab in 'settings'

    Model number - GT-P1010

    Firmware version - 2.2.1

    Kernel version - 2.6.32.9 se.infra@sep-59£1 (£= hash sign)

    Build number - FROYO.135


    Does any of that help, or do I still need to press *1234* if so please tell me where to press it, and I'll get it done.

    Thanks again for the extra speedy response

    from Kies

    current firmware version

    PDA:KD1 / CSC:KD1 (CHN)

    Kies also says to update Kies and then upgrade firmware

    I tried that before, should I try it again?

    It's getting late here, I'm off to bed

    Merry Christmas to all who read this, and I'll try to upgrade Kies and update the firmware and report back asap.

    Thanks for your help

    Well Kies is updated, and I've upgraded the firmware to

    PDA:KE2 / CSC:KE2 (CHN)

    GT-P1010 Ver. 11.11.22.02

    I know that isn't in the format you wanted, but that's all I can get.
