Hey guys,

We were unable to run "adb root" and "adb remount" using the stock Kernel, so I modified it a bit to make it work. This package must be flashed using ODIN.

COMPATIBLE WITH ALL GT-P5100 / GT-P5110 MODELS RUNNING STOCK ROM!!!

=> STOCK ROM GT-P5100 / GT-P5110 / GT-P5113 MODELS (ALD7/ALD9)
=> Fry ROM (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1691194)


Flash at your own risk! Kernel changes are dangerous. You have been warned.
Flashing your tablet using ODIN will void your warranty! Flashing this kernel will increase the counter in your bootloader GUI.


The zip is attached to this post. How to use:

================================================== ===
========== Flashing the stock rooted KERNEL ================
================================================== ===

1. Save and extract the zip file to a folder.
2. Shut down your tab.
3. Disconnect tab from USB and/or power cables.
4. Hold "Power+Volume UP" physical buttons on your tablet to initiate download mode.
5. Press "Volume DOWN" physical button on your tablet to confirm and enter ODIN mode.
6. On your PC, open "Odin3 v1.85.exe"
7. Press "PDA" button in ODIN and select the "espresso-any-root-kernel.tar.md5" file.
8. Connect your tablet using a USB cable. In ODIN you should see the device "<added>" message appear. If you do not, there is a problem with the Samsung drivers installation.
9. Confirm that only the following options are checked in ODIN: "Auto Reboot", "F. Reset Time", "PDA". DO NOT CHECK RE-PARTITION!!! NEVER!!!
10. Click the big "Start" button and wait a few seconds. Flashing the boot.img (will appear KERNEL in ODIN) is super-fast, so it'll just take a second!
11. After kernel flash, the tablet will reset automatically.
12. Congratulations you are now running a rooted kernel on your tablet.

Happy flashing and enjoy your rooted kernel!

Will you be making a Stock Kernel for the GT-P5113 ?

Thanks,

Surely it will not work for WIFI-only devices. BUT! If you can unpack and repack a boot.img for that device, I can give you some pointers on what needs to be changed without a problem.

The problem was the "adbd" binary in the ramdisk. It needs a few hacks to get it working. Basically adb thinks it's running in secure mode even if ro.secure=0

Send a PM my way if you need help.

If anyone can give me a boot.img from the p5113 I can make a root kernel image for you to test out.

Anyone want to help?

I've already rooted my 5110, does that mean I would be of little help?

If you open up a command console and type "adb root" with your tab connected via usb does it work?
If not, then you can send me the boot.img

"adbd cannot run as root in production builds"

Also when I plug my tablet in my computer sees it as 5113. I just checked the s/n and sure enough mine is a 5113.

How do I get you the boot.img?

Nevermind! Apparently all the Tab2 models are so similar that they're running the exact same kernel!!! They are just identical, I tell you!

I am currently running the P5110 Korean Tab kernel on a European 5100 and even HSDPA connectivity works fine. In any case, flash the Kernel with ODIN (PDA button) and let me know if you can "adb root" into your tab.

Get it from the first post.

Cheers,
C.

Perfection!!!!!!
Thanks a lot for your help on this one. We need more testers right now, but suffice to say that this means a LOT!

It means almost all if not ALL hardware in our devices is identical. This means OMG!!! All ROMs for all versions of this tab will function cross-platform. This is why the recovery from the 7" version works (almost) with our tabs. This is why my Fry ROM works fine on the GT-P5110/GT-P5113 (with minor issues)!

All devs will probably unite for these devices and we'll get to many places really, really fast!!!
