[Q] Help required upgrading my tab from Froyo to Gingerbread 2.2.3

Hi guys:

I recently bought a used T Mobile tab (model: SGH-T849). I am very tempted to upgrade it to Gingerbread 2.3.3. Just so you know i am currently located in Pakistan (Asia).

Current details on my tab say the following:

Model Number: GT-P1000
Firmware Version: 2.2
Baseband Version: P1000XXJHA
Kernel Version: 2.6.32.9 #1
Build Number: FROYO.XXJMA

On checking *#1234# it displays:
PDA: (blank)
Phone: P100XXJHA
CSC: (blank)

After reading various forums, videos, manuals I think I am ready to upgrade it myself. The problem is that i want to upgrade to "P1000DXJPI" which i believe is the Samsung Tab Original Asia Gingerbread 2.2.3 release.

I have tried downloading P1000DXJPI from 4shared (P1000DXJPI.7zip):
(download failed at 53%.) Can you suggest a new and complete download link?)

a) Will this firmware technically work on my version of the tab

b) Which is the correct tar. (for firmware: P1000DXJPI) to download?

c) Which PIT. file to use with this firmware version- (gt-p1000_mr_PIT.zip????)

d) Odin 1.7 or 1.6

e) What "dbdata" file to use if it and tar. files already not the samething.

f) Do i need any CSC file? If Yes then which one and what does it do?

I know these are a lot of questions but before I go ahead and upgrade I need more and accurate information. I will be obliged if some expert on tab could help this noob.

Thank you

(PS: please guide me to complete article having the information i am looking for)
