After a bunch of work, I present to you WORKING CLOCKWORKMOD!

*Big thanks to those of you who worked on the d2att, that code was invaluable for getting a working graphics driver and some unknowns I could not see.*

Confirmed on:
- SGH-i497 (ATT)
- SGH-T779 (T-Mobile)


You can also use this to get ROOT!

Requirements:
- Windows Computer with Samsung Drivers installed
- Odin if on Windows/Heimdall on Linux
- sdcard in the /sdcard slot

1. Download my Odin package here:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/58849669/es...hehorn.tar.md5

2. Download SuperSu from Chainfire and copy to your sdcard:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

3. Open Odin (as administrator) and hit the "PDA" button, remember to uncheck the reset

4. Mount Device into Download Mode (PWR, Vol) and Hit go on Odin once it appears.

5. Once Finished, Reboot into Recovery

6. Backup your existing image

7. Flash SuperSu from SDcard

8. WInning.



TO RETURN TO STOCK RECOVERY USE THIS ODIN FLASHABLE:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/58849669/es...hehorn.tar.md5



****In the process of doing this, I had to bust my /system in order to get the files required.
I would strongly appreciate if anyone can send me a copy of their boot.img and either a copy of their system.img or system.tar.ext4 made by clockworkmod. ****

Part of doing this was integrating everything with the d2-variant build chains in CM9 and CM10. Say thanks in the Thread if you like this or promote this thread so it makes it to the main page.

Sweet, thanks so much, worked amazing on my T-Mobile Tab 2, got root awaiting a CM9 ROM. No rush, just happy to have my root on my plaything. Keep up the amazing work.

I have the ATT device as well, running a full stock rooted backup as we speak. I will get it uploaded when completed. Please hold...

Glad to hear it guys!

Very happy to know it works just as well on the T-mobile one.

I can get some custom ROMs going if I can get a copy of someone's /system and boot.img .

First goal is CM9 and then a migration to CM10.1 once that is pretty stabile.

Luckily for us, we have two amazingly complete CM sources with the d2att ( and nice d2 kernel chain!) and p5100 which cover most of our requirements as far as setup and drivers/libs.

Thank You for the support. If you like this, check out my site, say thanks, and/or vote this up onto the main site for a post so it is more visible.

I will be posting the original stock recovery.IMG in Odin flash able later tonight.

Amazing work! Thank you.

Will this wipe my current apps and data?

Not at all. You are merely flashing Root over your existing install. I also suggest that you make a backup prior to installing SuperSU. All of your non-native apps and contacts, etc are on /data and SuperSU does not touch /data at all.

Thanks for figuring this out. If you still need boot img or anything from the t-mobile version let me know. Also is it possible to add the t-mobile model number (SGH-T779) to the thread title, it would help others to find it.

Thanks again

Edit: I just saw that you added the model to the OP. Thanks again
