    Any other suggestions? I'm at a loss here. I've gotten twice into recovery, wiped data and cache. Rebooted. Boot loop at Verizon.
    Do you think it will be good enough to take back to Verizon as stock and they won't know it was rooted? That's my main concern right now.

    Did you flash every file altogether?? or did you do them separately?? there is nothing wrong with your tab you just have to do everything altogether... are you on IRC at all??? Try joining #koush He and Deodexed are the ones that helped me, but those are all the same files, so i'm not sure what is going on...

    check your zImage file... does it say zImage or zImage.txt?? It shouldn't have an extension...

    I flashed them altogether. I'm not in IRC. I just tried it and it says I can't get onto the server and boots me off. Perhaps I can message him on Twitter.
    Zimage does not have an extension. :-(

    It worked Thanks!

    Thank you very very much for these instructions. I did something and I couldn't get it to go past the Samsung logo. However, using your instructions saved me. Thanks!

    Download doesn't work... It aborts a few MB in. Could you please upload to another source?

    Hopefully someone can help me here. My VZW Tab got messed up overnight one night (not rooted, stock firmware). Half of my apps disappeared.

    I tried in the phone to do a factory reset (privacy -> factory reset) but it will NOT wipe out and restore the tab. It reboots and brings me to recovery, where I select to wipe data/cache and reboot it.

    When I reboot it, all of my old programs are still there. My google account and everything. Except now all my programs force close and you can't really do anything.

    So I followed your instructions and everything seemed to go OK, but when it restarted... ALL OF MY DATA IS STILL ON THE DEVICE! This thing will not go back to factory..

    Any suggestions?

    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..

    These apps that you say keep coming back, do they happen to be installed on your SD card? If you remove your SD card do they go away?

    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..
