US TMobile Galaxy Tab Flashed To Make Phone Calls
So if you’re an owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab, the latest news is that some clever people at XDA have managed to work out how to flash the tablet in order to make phone calls!
XDA forum member Jyveafk originally posted a thread on trying to install phone.apk to his Tab but failed to make it work. Several pages on, and new thread started, the XDA member has successfully flashed the Tab to make and receive phone calls.
You will need to download Odin3 v 1.70 flasher and follow the instructions carefully. The procedure is for experienced flashers only. Currently only working on EDGE , Jyveafk has stated caveat emptor since there is no idea on how later updates will impact.
For more information and the link to the original discussion thread, take a look at the new modification thread.
