Use the root_original.zip from the sticky in this forum(galaxy 8.9) to root your device. Takes 1 minute. Download superuser from market. Update and you're set. Adfree. Titanium backup. It works great my tab plus.

You do need a microsd however. You can't just place the file in the root of the internal memory.

Now if someone would write a cifs.ko for this device. The one for the other galaxy tabs don't work this architecture(this is samsung chipset not tegra)

No idea. I have a wifi only tab 7 plus. The only thing the root_original.zip does is it makes /system writable and place 'su' in /system/bin. It doesn't overwrite anything. Samsung didn't even bother locking it down. Try shutting your tablet down then powering it up by holding the vol up button. If you can get to recovery, it should work for you. If this destroys your tablet, please don't blame me. Like I said, I have a wifi only version.

By the way, if you don't believe me. Extract the zip and go into the meta-inf folder and keep on going thru the subfolders until you see updater-script and view it with any text editor. All it does is copy su into your tablet.

started a rooting thread at the original Galaxy Tab forum...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1367249

Anyway, ROOTING works fine for me, if u lost your root, just re-root again.. no probs..

KIES update still works fine... on my KIES, just receive an new firmware update notification.. however, from the device, no Software Update is available...

easiest is to FACTORY RESET... BUT you loose your data...

if u want to keep your DATA... I have not researched on Honeycomb yet, but should be the same as Gingerbread... can try running this ADB script from my previous device forum...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1340255

Download the UNROOT.zip from there and run it...

Make sure you have installed Samsung KIES and your device already recognized by your PC and set to DEBUG MODE...

If you dont understand the above, I cant help you any further...

As far as I know the 3G version of the 7.0 plus does not exist.
