I have just installed 3.1 and have gotten root on my white 16gb retail verison, I will post instructions hopefully tonight.

*bootloader is still locked =/

Update*
I found this work for me and these are the steps that I have taken.

First:
Go to this link
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1119492

Follow the instructions there, once you reboot your tab you will get alot of FC, it is because of the stock android keyboard dictionary. You can curb the FC by switching the keyboard to Samsung keyboard.

Once this step is complete, download this
Root exploit

Place in on the root of your SD card

Turn off your tab

-press and hold the power button
-once the samsung galaxy 10.1 comes up push the volume down button
-release the buttons, this will display two icons
-push the volume down once to select the left icon, then press volume up to enter
-this will load up the stock recovery
-select the option to install update from SD card
-install the root/SU file you just downloaded and put on your SD card
-reboot into android

once rebooted, you should have root. but you still have a little bit of system instability.
-download this
http://droidbasement.com/galaxy/sys-...m_tab_10.1.zip
-put it on the root of your SD card
-download the free verison of rom manager
-open it, select the top option, flash clockworkmod recovery, select samsung galaxy tab 10.1
-you should now have CWM flashed

Turn off your tab

-press and hold the power button
-once the samsung galaxy 10.1 comes up push the volume down button
-release the buttons, this will display two icons
-push the volume down once to select the left icon, then press volume up to enter
-this will load up the clockwork recovery

*******DONT WIPE*******

-select the option to install update from SD card
-install the hc-3.1_ota-full_sam_tab_10.1.zip

it will take a little while to install, give it a few.

-Reboot

it will take a while on the samsung screen, give it a few.

once the tab is booted back up, check the version. 3.1
you can go back to using the stock android keyboard as well now.

You also might notice that you have lost root now.

Just reflash the root/su file that we did through the stock. reboot and you have a locked 3.1 with root tab =)

Worked perfectly on a 16 gb retail gray with locked boot loader.

I followed the instructions to the letter. For good measure, i then did a factory reset, followed by a re-root. Boot loader is still locked (as was expected) but considering the speed this was done in, I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

Looks like those two failed exchanges today looking for an unlocked tab were a big waste of time.

Only clarification I want to make is there is no need to check for the OTA (credit for this also to Riztnack)

Absolutely brilliant work.

What do we need a unlocked bootloader for if we have root and CWM?

No reason other than why not. It's nice to have something as open as possible if there's little risk in doing it. I don't really care, I'm already happy.

For a kernel later on, someone might OC the Tab soon.

How do you get into download mode for Odin? I'm trying Power + Vol down, then VOl up. I get a screen with Android icon saying downloading and it goes off immediately.
How do i make it stay on the downloading screen, so that i can flash the file thu Odin as per Step 1?

EDIT : Nevermind got into download mode...was doing it wrong :)
