I have recently been convinced to root my tab 2 7.0, however I really dont know what rom would be best for me. i would prefer something obviously better than my stock rom, still have my seven screens, and something as user friendly as possible. please help, thanks.
There are hundreds of roms available. It differs from person to person which roms he/she likes.
I personally like CyanogenMod. Just look here and find a rom.
Almost all threads have a guide how to install the rom. If you don't like the rom you just simply install another one.
If you want to get started, install CWM Recovery as listed above.
