Hey guys, New guy here, first post. I searched extensively for this topic but I didn't figure I'd have much luck as it is fairly unique, any help at all would be appreciated!

I used to work at a Rogers dealer store (Cell Phone carrier here in Canada) for a number of years. When the Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 came out we were sent a demo device to display in the store. When the screen would lock, or time out, the video displaying all of its features and uses (basically the commercial for it) would play on a loop for customers to see. Samsung (or maybe Rogers, I'm not sure) was supposed to come back for the tablet once the new ones were released, but never did.

Fast forward a number of years, Rogers bought the company I was working for, and shut down my store. The tablet was still there, and I was told it would just be thrown out, so I took it home. I went through ALL of the settings, factory reset it and all that, and the video still plays when it is locked (killing the battery in no time). I have rooted it, the video still plays. I have been unable to find an OS to load onto it as all of the ones I've found seem to be viruses due to age I would imagine, not to mention I'm not even sure if that would stop the video.

SO, what I'm wondering is, Would putting a new OS on maybe stop the video?

If so, what would you suggest and where can I find it?

If not, any ideas I can try to turn it off?

Thanks guys, any ideas or advice is welcome!
