************I have gifted by tab to my bro and bought a xoom so i dont have tab to test my rooting method and don't know if it works with latest gingerbread release*******************

Rooting Guide for Noobs

Disclaimer: The application is made by CLShortFuse and i am just creating a guide to root your Tab

Prerequisites:

1) Kies Software downloaded from HERE and installed and Tab connected even once
2) USB debugging enabled
3) SuperOnceClick downloaded from HERE

and a Galaxy tab

Process:
1) Connect your galaxy tab with debugging mode disabled and sync with Kies even once
2) Disconnect it and enable debugging mode from Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging
3) Connect the tab again to PC and click on home button so that Tab comes out of Kies connection
4) Launch SuperOneClick.exe
5) Click on root and wait for 5-10 Mins

and the Tab is rooted........

Note:
I have tried unrooting the device and rooting it again and this is not working. so this is to let you know that you will have to reflash the firmware to root the device if you unroot it again using this software and try to root until some one finds a solution

Can someone perform a check whether Tab is able to connect to Samsung KIES application after performing this routine?
