Info copied from thread on Rootzwiki by developer nycbjr (credit given below)...GalaxyTab Forums nor the developer is responsible for any damage to your device by following the instructions below.

*** Large Edit ***
Due to some firmware miss-matches I am Pulling the boot flash, the new process will be using CWM First, then the CWM Root package!
This is for the GT-P3113 AND GT-P3110 (the only difference is storage IIRC)


Big fat warning, I MAKE NO GUARANTEES THIS WILL NOT BRICK YOUR TAB, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!

Now with that unpleasantness out of the way.. with out further ado. I present the very first root for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0!! Yay mom I'm a dev now!

The original root exploit, re-flashing the boot partition will no longer be available due to some in-compatibleies with miss-matched firmware (sorry about that!)

Hence forth to get root, Flash xoomdev's CWM recovery First, then flash the package in this post.

Xoomdev's thread (ClockworkMod Recovery 5.5.0.4 - GT-P3113 - updated 5/19 - Galaxy Tab 2 (7") Development - RootzWiki)

Paste of his instructions:


Download the recovery.tar.md5

Make sure Kies is closed
Reboot into Download mode (adb reboot download)
Open Odin, confirm connection
Click PDA
Load recovery.tar.md5 file
Click Start
Device will reboot when the flash is complete

To reboot into recovery, just like any other device; adb reboot recovery

Link to root package (http://www.mediafire.com/?kjb0rg9bs87p2ma)

Congratulations you are now rooted!
