Note this is for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi.
In the past, rooting the Galaxy Tab 10.1 could be very frustrating and confusing for many users including me. Well now there is a fairly simple way to do it thanks to the fine folks at XDA. It will require a bit of work, but can be done in just a few minutes.
- Install samsung drivers or download samsung Kies and install on your computer which will in turn install the drivers for you.
- Run Odin.exe, choose PDA and point it to recovery.md5 file.
- Connect tab via usb to your computer while in downloading mode then hit start in Odin on computer after connection has been established. Run, wait then reboot.
- Connect tab to computer in usb storage mode (make sure usb debugging is off in tab settings) copy root exploit (Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_10.1_root.zip) to root of the storage. Turn off tab. Reboot into bootloader again but this time go to recovery. Select to install zip from SDcard. Install the root.zip. Reboot into android. Your tablet is rooted.
