Hello Guys,

Before few days i bought samsung galaxy tab2 p3100. P3100 is the asian version of tab2 which also include 3g+wifi+gsm.

After much searching and testing i managed to flash a cwm and was able to root my Tab.

A BIG FAT WARNING, I MAKE NO GUARANTEES THIS WILL NOT BRICK YOUR TAB, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!

So i thought that many p3100 users are still waiting for a proper guide so here it is:

HOW TO FLASH CWM :

First of all download the odin attached and extract it to a folder on your pc/laptop where you can find it.

Now download the expresso_recovery.tar file from the below mentioned link and also download the update.zip file attached.

Put your tab in to download mode[Volume down+power on button]

Start odin by clicking odin.exe.

In odin just tick on auto reboot and thats all. If you see any ticks in any boxes except this just untick it.

Now connect your tab via usb and the odin will detect your tab. It will be in yellow colour when it is detected.

Now in odin in pda select the expresso_recovery.tar file.

After that just press start.

When the flashing is done you will see a green colour and it will be saying pass this means the cwm has been flashed.

Just check if the cwm is working by putting your tab in to recovery mode[volume up+power on button]

Update : Guys you can also use the TWRP TOUCH RECOVERY by "teamw" & ClockworkMod Recovery 5.5.0.4 by "codeworkx".

ScreenShots, Cwm File & the original thread link posted below.


HOW TO ROOT

For rooting just put the update.zip file in your external sd card of your tab.

After that just put your tab in custom recovery mode.

You will get an option to select the file from external sd card.

Than select the update.zip file and you tab will be rooted and will reboot.

To check if its rooted just see in the applications menu if you are getting superuser app.

Enjoyyyy...

Cwm File v4.0.3 : Download

Cwm file for ICS v4.0.4 : Download

TWRP TOUCH RECOVERY : Download

Note : All the cwm's and rooting zips are not my work and i take no credits for this. I have just put this things in one post & have tried to make it as simple as i can for all the users.

Thanks

Tablet Simple Way to Root
Hi Guys,
Thanks tapan15in for giving us the the detailed Guide for CWM flash and Rootin GT-P3100

here is my 2 paise(aka 2cent) Guide for rooting the GT-P3100 with latest ROM and CWM

Step -1: Download the latest Android 4.0.4 ROM[P3100DDBLF2] from SamFirmware.com
[Good if u register]P3100DDBLF2.
Step 0: Download ODIN 1.85 and cwm recovery and root flash (attached)
ODIN N CWM
Step 1: Copy the attached zip file to external microsd card and load it into your device (Keep in mind external SD not internal memory)
Now Boot your Device in Download Mode and Flash The P3100DDBLF2 ROM using ODIN (for instructions on ODIN read first POST)

Step 2: Once the New ROM(Andoid 4.0.4) is Installed and rebooted... boot your device again into Download Mode. Now in this time use ODIN to flash the downloaded CWM Recovery(recovery.tar.md5) (IN PDA)

Step 3: Now Boot your Device to Recovery CWM will be loaded. In CWM select install zip from sdcard --> select the copied zip file --> reboot

STEP 4: ENJOY your ROOTED Android 4.0.4 Device

P.S: Since CWM is flashed Software Update though downloads any new update but will fail to install...
FIX: Look for Updated ROM from samfirmware.com regularly and flash it in ODIN. Now ROM flashes will only update the existing installation (Ain't NO affects)
