Here’s the Rogers Canadian carrier version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1000R firmware update list and available stock ROMs that has been officially released by Samsung Kies firmware server. Just like the international version Galaxy Tab GT-P1000, Rogers also have a different firmware build, the product code number of Rogers Galaxy Tab ends with letter “R” (Galaxy Tab GT-P1000R) and unlikely with Bell that also ends with letter “M” (Galaxy Tab GT-P1000M).
This tablet is powered with Android v2.2.1 Froyo when released by Samsung but now already upgraded to Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. There are no certain reports from Samsung that this tablet is upgradeable to Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS 4). Probably, due to its lack of hardware capability in handling the said Ice Cream Sandwich firmware upgrade.
The last update was around July 2011, an upgrade to Gingerbread from the old Froyo Android platform. Up to now there is no new firmware update released by Samsung. To Check your GT-P1000R tablet’s firmware just dial this code *#1234# on the type pad or Go to>Settings>About>Firmware info.
