Folks at XDA did it again. The bootloader of the Galaxy Tab has finally been unlocked, thanks to a patch released by an XDA user, Chainfire. This patch will make sure that you never get locked out of flashing.
I really believe that the manufacture should not lock us out of the device. After all, we all bought Galaxy Tab because we hate iPad’s closed ecosystem, right? [download the patch]
How to install?
Download the patch from the link given above. Install it on your device, and run it. It will show you a status screen, and if your device is compatible and you have protected bootloaders, the bottom entry “Patch bootloaders” will become available. Tapping it will start the patch procedure.
PS – The patch is not compatible with CDMA Galaxy Tabs.
