I have a rooted, flashed Nexus 7 but wanted a tablet of same size with extSD, so I just bought a Tab2 7 wifi. Can I apply the information for rooting and flashing for 10.1? Are Tab and Tab2 essentially the same in this regard? And, what's the U.S. model number I should look for when it comes to ROMs and kernels? If there's a thread covering all of this, I'd love to find it. Searching the forums didn't result in anything useful. Nexus 7 seems further along with original development than Tab (I also have two rooted, flashed S3s). Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Do NOT flash anything in this section as this is the first gen tablet. They are nowhere near the same (different processors and whatnot). If you flash anything from here, you raise the risk creating an expensive paperweight. You need to find the right section by searching Google using terms like xda GT-P51 (whatever the model number found in your about screen).

Okay, that's precisely what I needed to know. It's GT-P3113. I'll look for info on that.
