I have someone putting together something to try soonish, ill update if I find anything obviously.

Liking the device so far much. Will love it when I can get some AOSP on it.
The only method I can think of is to CF-Root it. We would have to have someone with kernel level development skills to do that though. We simply flash a rooted kernel in ODIN and reboot, we could also include busybox and CWM if someone built it. I'm in the process of looking into how CF-Root works and hoping I can attempt to get that ball rolling.

Edit: A system dump of our system has helped Galaxy Note owners have a Tablet Mode ROM on their device. I sent that developer a message and am awaiting any good/bad news I get.

Edit2: This is what he told me, but I am no developer. Hopefully this helps someone to get us a little further along.

I am not sure how to ' dd ' the system img from your phone but it s doable via adb , you need the correct block for system then you can do what was posted by DA_G in one of his thread by changing the block ( i717 section)
Edit99: Over on another forum that begins with Rootz, they have made a Tab 2 section. I made a thread in it and it looks like xoomdev has bought one of the Tab 2's. It is nice to see well known developers getting the same tablet.

(Accessories: Scout Urban Armor Gear case; MIME Ghost Glass ver 2.0 screen protector)
Google Nexus 7: stock rooted (JB 4.2.2); stock kernel

Removing bloat and and the ability to create backups would be awesome. What would make this tablet really shine would be a true AOSP rom. I doubt it will be long with this awesome community.

I try to root my Galaxy Tab 2, but..

SuperOneClickv2.3.3-ShortFuse... doesn't work
zergRush, stops at step 7
psneuter, stops at step 5

Easy rooting toolkit (v2.0) created by DooMLoRD doesn't work either

I Also tried manual rooting, sending commands throught ADB (Android SDK tools) when i try to use exploit zergRush, I get this message "Not a 2.2/2.3 Android", that's because galaxy tab 2 has ICS 4.0.3, Does anyone know about a working exploit with Android 4 ICS ???

Because when I try to mount the system folder with this command "busybox mount -o remount,rw /system" I get this error... "busybox[1]: syntax error: '^Ap$]4h$\^Z^B^E4' unexpected"

I think the only method is to use odin to flash either a system.img that is rooted or flash a rooted kernel.

We also need a separate forum on xda. Just saying.

BTW, Diablo - awesome idea for the head unit. I'm interested to see how it works out!
Hey, just FYI, I started a Worklog of my CarTab project over on MP3Car Forums - the link is in my Signature


Oh and I just received confirmation that my Galaxy Tab 2 is at my house waiting for me to get out of work!!! I can't wait to get home and open it up and play with it!!

We def. need our own forum for this thing. But that aside if any one can get any dev interested in this, I can provide any files from the device that they may need. I have an IT background with Linux experience (unfortunately I've never looked into how to go about reverse engineering Android to root it - but maybe this is my chance...)
Phone:
AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 Active SGH-I537
Rooted, ML2 (Android 4.3)

Work Phone: AT&T HTC One 32GB Black
Rooted, TWRP, CM 11 Nightly, XtremeGuard Full Body

Tablet:
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" - Rooted, CWM Touch, Slim Bean 4.3.1

I think Samsung will not release the kernel sources for the GT-P3113 soon, I hope that we find a new exploit, like zergRush for ICS, soon. Or maybe a custom ROM, like CyanogenMod, but they only support previous version of the galaxy tab.
