If you have 4.0.3 it will worked Just with cwm and cwm-root.zip to root.
Flash cwm from ODIN and then Flash cwm-root.zip from cwm recovery.

signature verification failed
I have tried flashing the Fix-Recovery.zip and cwm-root-gtab2.zip. I am getting E:signature verification failed. I doubled check everything I did and used a different sd card thinking maybe it wasn't accepting the sd card. Still having the same issue. I don't know if anyone has this problem with the method, but I would greatly would like the help to get root for the Tab.
