[Q] Galaxy Tab - Missing USB Settings
Apologies if this has been asked before, but I did look at the suggested related threads and many other forums.
Ultimately, I am trying to root my son's Galaxy Tab 2 7" (wifi only) but I am falling at the first hurdle. When I plug the phone via USB to the laptop it claims the USB has malfunctioned and the device cannot be recognised, however, all my USB ports work perfectly. I have also installed the latest Samsung Drivers on the laptop (running Windows 8).
When I go to the Settings menu of the tab itself, there is NO USB connection settings at all, in any sub-menu and so I can't even check if it is set up to allow transfer. I have factory wiped in the hope that some updates removed this option, as I do recall (perhaps wrongly) that I was able to connect when we first purchased the device.
Is this a common issue with the Tab 2, or is it an issue with my set-up. If already known is there a solution, or is he doomed to walk stock for all eternity?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
