    Like the title says, I will paypal $10 (or more if you give me extra help) to whoever can help me root and upgrade my Galaxy Tab SCH-i800. I need it rooted and an upgrade to 4.0 or higher would be nice. I've tried one click roots and none worked. I've tried following youtube videos and they never turn out to work. Seems like cyanogenmod would be the best route, but I just can't seem to get it right.

    Now, I've done my fair share of computing: I'm familiar with torrents, keygens, cracks, I've also accomplished several circuit board repairs for my car stereo, car window switches, and my macbook. But when it comes to software I'm more of an apple person, windows and android frustrate me.

    I should also mention I made another attempt to root my tab last night. I was following a youtube video on how to use heimdall and I got pretty far and everything seemed to be working, but after the part where heimdall automatically reboots the tab it booted up like normal, but the touchscreen doesn't work. it senses my finger but the directions are off, like up is right, and down is left, and vice versa. Now I need to figure out how to fix this.

    I'm exhausted after spending hour after hour googling all these problems and trying to understand all this android and root lingo. I figure I should just have an expert completely walk me through it so I can stop wasting my time sitting in front of my computer and so I don't mess up anymore.

    Thanks!

    Since I'm new to android, if I tried to root my tablet (and failed) but now my screen digitizer isn't sensing, what can I do to solve this problem? It won't turn off either...

    I must have loaded the wrong file for something in the process and got something screwed up. Should I download all the stock firmware or software and reload it on my tablet?

    hmmm okay I haven't tried odin yet, I'll try it out tomorrow and let you know. But I realize before I get to it I have another issue...I tried to root my tablet 2 nights ago (and failed) but now my screen digitizer isn't sensing, it doesn't seem to read the battery since it says its been at 100% for 3 days straight, and I can't turn it off. what can I do to solve this problem?
