Gingerbread (Android 2.3) ROMs: (1.2bl)
- G-Harmony Gingerbread (AOSP Gingerbread 2.3.7) available from the XDA thread here. We cannot recommend or support this ROM. However, we have included it here in case someone wants to install a ROM that includes support for the built-in camera on the GTab.
- Do NOT flash this onto a 1.2bl system! YOU MUST USE Booloader 1.1 with CyanogenMod 7.2 (1.1bl) Most thngs (including the camera) work. Download here: CM7.2official

You can direct download the large icon version here. Recommended – use the installation process for Team DRH ROM (below) since it is very similar.
