Default [Q] Rooting Problem - CWM-based Recovery v5.5.0.4

Hi,

I've been going through the following rooting guide for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi only.
[ACS] [How to] Root, Clockworkmod, Flash Roms, Unroot, Tips (11 videos) 3/14/12
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1462961

I've successfully proceeded through the guide up until I need to utilise the CWM-based Recovery tool v5.5.0.4.

When the CWM-based Recovery tool loads my screen continually scrolls down so the menu is blurred out.

From my research & querying the forum I found a related comment. This can be found from the rooting guide thread linked above - page 3 from a member called bugs9477. He states that he also had a scrolling screen & believes there is a compatibility problem for some versions of the tab.

As I've a novice to Android tweaking on this tab I'm not willing to continue until preferably qbking77 responds or an experienced forum member advises me on how to proceed forward from my problem.

I currently have a model number GT-P7510. If you require further information regarding my specific tab please ask.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks MapleSyrup.

I followed the guide from bugs9477 & downloaded ClockworkMod_Recovery_v5.5.0.4_P75xx.tar.

I'm not sure how to uterlise this file when using qbking77 guide [ACS] [How to] Root, Clockworkmod, Flash Roms, Unroot, Tips (11 videos) 3/14/12.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1462961

The file used with qbking77's guide is called recovery.tar.md5 & bugs9477's is called ClockworkMod_Recovery_v5.5.0.4_P75xx when untared.

Can I use the untared file with Odin?

You don't need to untar the file.

I'm not sure if you're following the guide step by step.

Don't mix bugs9477's guide with S0ckM0nk3y's guide. First do what bugs9477 says and be sure that you are in stock again, then follow S0ckM0nk3y's instructions and check that cwm is working fine.

Thanks MapleSyrup. I wasn't sure if I had to go through the step of unrooting the device first. But once I did that & then went through the rooting process it worked.

Thanks for taking your time to assist me. Cheers.

Sorry to be a pain - one last question.

Do I need to keep the Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_10.1_root archive file on the SD Card after successfully completing the rooting process?
