The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has been rooted. It is extremely easy to root your tablet once you have ClockworkMod installed on your device. Please make sure to install ClockworkMod before attempting to root using this method.
The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was released late last month and developers have already found a way to install ClockworkMod Recovery onto it. ClockworkMod is a custom recovery that allows for backing up your device, installing custom ROMs, rooting and more.
Canadian Galaxy Tabs and Galaxy Note are starting to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich today. The tablets to receive the update are the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the 5.3 inch Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 is also listed to receive the upgrade, but I wouldn’t count on the original Galaxy Tab to receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Though the updates are starting to roll out already, they have allotted the whole quarter to finish the roll out process.
