The P1000XWJQ8 was officially released in selected Europe countries so far, this is packed in android 2.3.6 Gingerbread and upgrade from Android 2.3.3 a couple of months ago. This procedure is a manual method to upgrade the Galaxy Tab to the latest firmware build P1000XWJQ8 by using Odin if having an issue upgrading from Kies or you can’t upgrade if you’re outside for that particular country.. This method is so simple for advance users but a little bit risky for beginners in some part.

Make Preparation before flashing:
– Back-up all important data stored in your device (this is important to keep all your data in safe, if something went wrong)
– Ensure that the battery is fully charge (power lose may interupt the process and might brick the device in no time)
– Galaxy Tab USB cable wire – a good conditioned USB wire.
– A PC/laptop with working USB port that runs in Windows OS, this will not work on Mac users)
– Install Kies on your PC just to get the driver of the TAb, or grab the driver.
– Disable any antivirus program, and also Kies if you have it installed.
– If your device currently installed with custom ROM you may need to ask your ROM developer first before directly install back to these factory stock ROM. Just to get rid of any issues after flashing.
