How can I erase everything on a Galaxy Tab GT-P1000?

How do I erase everything including the operating system (Android Froyo 2.2) on my Galaxy Tab GT-P1000? I’ve tried with odin with no success.  The problem with this tablet is that everything crashes upon startup and after few minutes it restarts itself then again the same process of crashing.

    If trying any other ROMs didn't solve your problem,then your tablet is having hardware issue like NAND flash memory getting slow or approaching its end of life.

    To Reset the Phone:

    Select Settings
    Select Privacy
    Select Factory Data Reset
    Then select Reset Tablet

    To Hard Reset:

    Turn the Samsung Galaxy TAB GT-P1000 Power OFF
    Press and Hold the Volume Down and Briefly press the Power button.
    Release the Power button button when the Samasung logo appears.
    An additional menu will appear, just follow the whole instruction to hard reset the device.
    The device will then reboot, after this process been done and back to its original factory default settings.

    1) First Samsung Galaxy TAB should be turned off.
    2) Then press and hold the VOLUME UP button, and then briefly press the POWER .
    3) At recovery menu select wipe data / Factory reset. Select with volume and confirm with HOME button. Everything will be deleted (if you have important files, do backup)

    if rooted and custom firmware:
    1) Reboot the Galaxy Tab into ClockworkMod Recovery by holding down the Volume Up key and the Power button simultaneously.
    2) Once in ClockworkMod Recovery, if you want you create a backup of your ROM.
    3) From the recovery menu, select “Wipe data/ factory reset”.
    4) Select “Wipe Cache partition” and confirm:
    5) Select “Advanced”, then “Wipe Dalvik cache” and confirm
    6) With your Tablet data completely wiped, you can now a new ROM. From the recovery menu, select “Install zip from SD card”.
