The silly GT-P1000 has gone read only!

    G'day all :)

    Well, my Tab crashed a few nights in a row to the Samsung logo. The final time it would not get past this logo at power on.

    Thus I tried a factory reset, but still it was stuck at the logo.

    Finally I tried a Kies firmware update, which brought it back to life, sort of.

    Now, I can't format the internal SD card. Nor can I install any apps as they claim there's no space - so it appears that both the internal SD partition and the Applications(?) partition have become read-only.

    I can install apps to the SD card via an APK, but on reboot they are size 0kb.

    I can't sell it since I can't wipe my stuff from it.

    Any suggestions? Or is it mostly dead. (Can still use camera, media player, clock, etc. but not email, internet.)
