I have a root zip you can use... let me know and I'll post it..
As for getting cwm or TWRP recovery on the device.. I have a file with a cwm that I used to get a custom recovery on my tab using odin.. but once on it, I suggest getting an updated recovery. You can do this by flashing a recovery zip in the older cwm. There is also a TWRP recovery file you could use in Odin, but I read in the op that it's hit or miss. It's in the infamous aokp rom op.
I just remembered that the root zip is for 4.0.4 ICS.. what are you on right now..
Really once you have a custom recovery you can flash a rooted rom, unless you plan on staying stock..
Let me know what ya think...
