Download these necessary tools I have compiled in an all in one zip for you.
Within this download you will see:
recovery.tar.md5 (CWM 188.8.131.52)
(Thanks to pershoot for this)
Alright now that we have this downloaded. Extract the zip to your desktop or wherever you want to keep it for safe keeping.
Let's get started
First we need to get to know your buttons on the tab
It can be a little tricky for newcomers when navigating through recovery/download options.
P = POWER, D = VOLUME DOWN, U = VOLUME UP
With the Tablet powered off
Press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons
You will see this screen below
Release the Power button but still hold the Volume Down button.
The next screen you will see will look like this:
This is your bootloader screen with obiviously TWO options.
Volume Down Button Navigates
Volume Up Button Selects
To Get Into Download Mode Make Sure This Is Highlighted:
To Get Into Recovery Mode Make Sure This Is Highlighted:
This is what Download Mode will look like after you have selected the correct ICON by pressing the Volume Up button.
There are two screens you will see.
And The Second:
When you are in Download Mode
open up ODIN3_v1.85.exe
Plug your tablet into the PC.
For tutorials on ODIN3
I will leave that up to QBKING77
and his AWESOME YOUTUBE VIDEOS
When you see the yellow box lit up
Select the PDA Button
Find the recovery.tar.md5
This is CLOCKWORKMOD 184.108.40.206
The process will last oh I'd say about................................... 7 seconds
You will see a Green Pass box lit up as well.
The Tablet will reboot on its own.
After the tab has booted up leave your Tablet plugged into the PC.
IF FLASHING A CUSTOM ROM IS YOUR GOAL
THEN STOP HERE AND DOWNLOAD THE ROM OF YOUR CHOICE
99.9% OF THE DEVELOPERS PRE-ROOT THEIR MAGNUM-OPUS
PUT IT ON THE ROOT OF YOUR SDCARD/USBSTORAGE
FLASH THAT VIA CWM
IF YOUR GOAL IS TO JUST OBTAIN ROOT ACCESS
FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW.
Put the Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_10.1_root.zip
onto the ROOT
of your SDCARD/USBSTORAGE
Next we want to power the tab off.
With the Tablet off boot into Recovery Mode
Now I always Wipe/Data Factory Reset 3X, Wipe Cache 3X and Wipe Dalvik Cache 3X
I do this because I'm anal and it's less chance of things going wrong with the flash so make sure you have everything backed up you need.
However wiping all this from CWM
delete your SDCARD/USBSTORAGE
After you have wiped everything........
Select Install zip from sdcard
Then choose zip from sdcard
Then select your Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_10.1_root.zip
Then select YES.
Let it do it's thing then select reboot system now
After it boots up HOORAY!!!!! YOU ARE ROOTED!!! Now you can delete all the system apps your little hearts desire.
If you happen to delete something you shouldn't have please follow the steps below
Now for the UNROOTING PROCESS!!
First thing to do is to make a backup of anything on your SDCARD/USBSTORAGE
you might need.
Boot your Tablet into Download Mode
Plug your Tablet into your PC and wait for it to connect.
Select the PDA Button and then select the P7510XABKMP_P7510UEKMP_HOME.tar
Hit Start and that process should take a couple minutes as it will put your Tablet back to the Factory ROM and Recovery and Kernel Images.
After it finishes it should reboot. You are going to want to power it down and boot into
After you are in the factory Recovery Mode as seen above you are going to want to do a Wipe Data/Factory Reset and Wipe Cache Partition 3X's
. This will ensure that you are complete stock and it will wipe your SDCARD/USBSTORAGE
Congrats YOU ARE UNROOTED AND NOW ALLOWED TO RECEIVE OTA'S VIA SAMSUNG!!!
