    I’m up to “Flash CWM to Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1000″. I installed ROM Manager on my Tab. When I ask it to install ClockworkMod Recovery (from the Recovery Setup menu, which it automatically goes to), it presents a list of hardware models which doesn’t include anything I recognise as my GT-P1000 (I’m in the UK and it isn’t branded by any carrier.) Presumably if I pick a ‘similar’ P1000 like the “Samsung Galaxy Tab (T-Mobile)” then it won’t work? Any other suggestions?
    This stackexchange question:
    has an (accepted & upvoted) answer from Feb 2013 which says
    “You cannot install CWM recovery onto the Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 via ROM Manager app. You will need to flash it via Odin or Heimdal utilities.”
    Am I right in understanding this contradicts your article? Which is right?

    ChrisJeanty Tartley Would appreciate hearing about it if you have any success. I’ve tried various versions of Odin and Heimdall, many times, but haven’t been able to figure out the magic combination yet. I’m @tartley on twitter. Good luck!

    Having a Super AMOLED present, the actual display screen itself is contact delicate, instead of the touch sensitive level becoming
    positioned upon leading. It’s worth noting that
    of the top 10 most popular smartphones, Samsung can claim seven out of the ten spots, while
    Apple can claim just three (albeit, three of the top
    four, and with all of its flagship devices). A 5 megapixel camera is also provided, making the Samsung Galaxy S a competent cameraphone.
