Sounds strange. Did you do a factory reset from the recovery after following the instructions?
I have tried doing it two ways.
First attempt: Tried to activate the restore from within Android. Privacy -> Factory Reset. The Tab restarts and goes into Recovery. I scroll down and choose "clear data/factory reset" and "clear cache". Then I restart it. The Tab restarts and takes forever to boot. It boots up and makes me go through the inital setup but all of my old programs and google account are still there. Anything I do on the tab at this point causes a force close.
I then followed this guide step by step and with the same result. It will restart when it finishes but still have all my data on it.. I don't know whats going on..
They aren't on the SD card.
I just did it two more times. Flashed stock firmware from computer to Tab using heimdall with the SD card installed and not installed when doing the flash and initial boot.
Doing it either way results in the same thing. It goes back to an image that looks to have been captured about a day or two ago. I had just changed the background and installed and app and it always reverts to this point..
Even if I just turn the unit off, then back on, it resets itself. It will load all the apps that I had previously uninstalled before shutting down the unit.. Anyone have any idea what is going on?
I had an issue where a recovery using clockworkmod locked and bricked my tab. I was able to put this rom on my tab and get it to work. My problem is, i have apparently lost the modem.bin for it. Airplane mode is always checked as on (can't be turned off), no gps and 3g signals.
Any idea how I can get these functions back working?
Any help with this?
Additional information. When I flashed my tab again with this stock firmware, and then got back into it, I started to redownload and reinstall some of my old apps. When I did this with Z4root, something strange occured. When I opened it, I had the option to reroot the tab, as it was saying it was already rooted. This seems to have persisted even after flashing it to the stock rom.
This makes me wonder about what part of the file system is not being touched during the flashing of the rom and is that the same place my problem with the radio is occuring as well.
Thank you so much for the write up! Saved my arse! Everythign worked flawlessly, no boot loop so I didn't wipe data/cache. Booted right up and everything is just like I had it just before I locked it up.
