How To Update Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 to XWJMK Froyo 2.2 Firmware

samsung galaxy tab logoFor all the Galaxy Tab P1000 owners there’s a great news for all of you as you too can taste all the latest firmware to your Samsung Galaxy Tab, we have been expanding the firmware upgrading database from firmware upgrade guides for Samsung Galaxy S to HTCs to the Motorola’s etc. So, now let’s check out on how you can flash your Samsung Galaxy Tab P 1000 with the latest firmware build release which is XWJMK 2.2 version. The best part of this is that this has got a minute tweaks in terms of Samsung’s virtual keyboard adding to the list it has also got a better Samsung’s Touch Wiz experience with some tweaks in this one too.

So, before we proceed you need to understand that this is not an Official public release ROM though such beta releases are the test releases which Samsung gives out to its beta tester and we just extend this program with you in the form of these tutorials, so we have no responsibility if your Galaxy Tab get damaged as bricked, however we will try to help you out as much as possible and in a very rare case the Galaxy Tab gets bricked. Rest assured if you follow the procedure as it’s mentioned below there is no way that you will be able to brick or lock your Samsung Galaxy Tab. Do, ensure that the firmware which you will be upgrading is only on Samsung Galaxy Tab with the model number as P1000 and nothing else and also this firmware update is not applicable for all those whose Galaxy Tab is either Network specific or Locked as this will brick your Galaxy Tab. Only Network free Galaxy Tabs can be updated with the procedure mentioned below.

So, if you are new to the firmware upgradation process, you will have to ensure that you have created a backup of all Contacts, Messages, Applications, Images, and Videos as in the due course of the firmware update your device will be completely wiped which will eventually erase all the things in your phone, though after creating the backup you can easily restore back all the contents including the Call log too. Also, ensure that the phone is charged more than 50% so as to facilitate the smoother firmware update as the firmware update generally requires higher battery life though higher the battery life is always better. Also, ensure that all antivirus, firewalls etc. are closed as these may interrupt the process of updation. Most importantly close entire operations of the KIES software suite on your computer as this may interrupt the installation process. Also, it’s recommended to remove memory card or the SIM card if any so as to further ensure that data is not lost in these mediums. Also, installing this firmware doesn’t mean that it will root the device or void the warranty only when you Root the Galaxy Tab, the warranty gets void.

    Hi all, I have a branded Vodafone version like this
    PDA: P1000BUJI4
    PHONE: P1000BUJI3
    CSC: P1000VDCJJ3

    can I use the attached files to update and remove the branding? essentially I only have problems with the built-in email app and exchange (folders not showing).

    thanks!!

    • Neal Pradeep

      Hey @david it’s not recommended as you will lose warranty!

      • david

        I would imagine so…but now I’m not able to use email@exchange.
        Is there any way to backup the branded rom in case of a warranty repair?
