Default Im in a very serious problem.. plz help me guys..

I am using Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 p3100 (3g + wifi) . it is on non rooted stock 4.1.2 jellybean. The problem is, its volume down button is not working and i want to root it and flash kitkat on it. That means im not able to root it by the odin method... Guys plz tell me a way to root it without odin because i am not able to get into "Download mode" but i can enter into "Recovery mode" ... Help me plz..........

The technical term for your condition is "screwed".
Unless ypu get the hardware button fixed you're stuck

IDK, if there is something like USB JIG for 30 pin USB connector.

Otherwise no chance of rooting via Odin method until you got your volume down button repaired.
Press THANKS, If I helped you in some way other wise keep smiling .

I didnt think adb would work. Isnt that a sudo command to boot download mode?

Edit*** yeah, won't work to root because its a superuser command

Sudo commands will not work unless the device is already rooted, as i mentioned above.

sudo is only needed for root permissions on the remote computer when udev doesn't give full permission to the usb device that is connected to it. I'm not referring to calling su on the tablet itself.
