    Baseband Version: P6200XXLQ1

  • after one day working with my new android,
    1. I lost my persian support because of region settings and my persian keyboard.
    2. restart has been added to power menu.

  • I’m from the Philippines and ICS update works great.
    Only downside is i can no longer connect with Samsung Kies. It no longer recognizes my device and i cannot restore my Kies backup files on my tab.

    • I am also living in the Philippines, and samsung support told me that there was not going to be an upgrade because of browser issues, i.e., they are too lazy to debug ICS, so we are screwed. Did you buy your Tab 7.0 plus in the Philippines, or did you get it from one of the regions listed above? I don’t want to brick mine, since it is the router for my house, using a Smart SIM. Please let me know what you did, and if it is still working as you expected?

  • Thank you!

    Updated the Austria version on a Singapore P6200. It works fine…except for the following that can be improved:
    1) Bringing one app to another doesn’t create a folder (GO Launcher can).
    2) Most widgets cannot be resized (Go Launcher can).
    3) Chrome is the only browser allowing posting on FB but setting send Chrome FC. Overall Chrome is a good browser. Better than stock ICS browser imo.
    4) Clicking on the gallery in Camera mode sends the camera app FC. Small issue.
    5) Need to re-root after updating using CWM.

    • Hi Linus, Did you manage to input chinese character into this new ICS ROM? I try to find the input but no chinese…So do u have it?
