[HOW-TO] Root/Flash CWM Samsung Galaxy Tab2 [P31XX][Touch CWM][Update][25/08/12]
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 126.96.36.199 by "codeworkx".
