OK, thanks to B Ogbrushs link, tab is now up and running ICS, previous
problems seem to be solved. It did come up running in Chinese language
initially, and caused a bit of head scratching until I'd got into settings to
change the language.
The ROM isn't rooted, but does access Google Play store, and most of the
unwanted crud is already removed.
There's no immediate need to root, but I would like to install ROM Manager
+ Clockwork mod (needs root) to set up backup and recovery. I need also
to find if possible a way to boot into recovery mode from startup.
Ideas anyone ?. ... Jack
