Galaxy Tab GT p1000

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Galaxy Tab GT 1000. Android 2.2 Rooted. Newbie. Tab is soft bricked (ie. will not get beyond ‘Installing Muti-CSC’ in Recovery Mode. So could anyone please tell me; 1) Can I flash a new Rom in order to unbrick it? 2) If so, does the Rom have to be identical to original? 2) Will flashing a new Rom cause less data loss than performing a factory reset? I've trawled the forums but cannot quite seem to get the information I'm looking for. As a newbie I am nervous about hard bricking the Tab. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (HowTos)
