so I'll put it in this post, and I'll mention I posted this on rootzwiki first, we have our very own forum there... (XDA I love ya, and I know you will get there hehe)
** Edit ***
I just attached the files as well as mediafire, rename the txt file to pit (xda won't accept the file as is..
I have gained root through using a modified boot.img from the gt-p3110 leak posted a few weeks ago, took me all day but here it is.
Note I haven't only tested this on my device, its 2am est and all my testers are asleep (that being termitech lol)..
So big fat warning, I MAKE NO GUARANTEES THIS WILL NOT BRICK YOUR TAB, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
Now with that unpleasantness out of the way.. with out further ado. I present the very first root for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0!! Yay mom I'm a dev now!
The method will have you using hemidall/heimdall-frontend there is a way to put this all into an odin package but I'm too exhausted to do so (for now).. Also I will not re-hash how to install or use heimdall.. you can look that up on your own
Get it here:
Once that is installed do the following:
- reboot tablet into download mode
- adb reboot download
- launch heimdall-frontend
- go to flash tab
- load attached pit file (gt-p3110.pit)
- Then from partion details choose "KERNEL", click "Add"
- then choose "Browse" and select the attached boot-bjr.img
- choose "Start"
after the tablet reboots:
adb shell ./su ./gtab2-root.sh
I'm going to try and stay up a bit longer and monitor this (and the xda thread) please let me know immediately of success or failure, I will pull the files if failure.. Issues with heimdall aside, I want reports back on if things work.. They work for me.. and I tested a fresh factory img just a few minutes ago.. pretty sure we are good!
