Easy Root and Recovery Tutorial for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

With the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 obtaining root, it was only a matter of time before it’s smaller sibling, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, was rooted as well. Unlike the original Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 10.1, which were released almost a year apart from one another, this generation offers the two sizes (as well as a few others) concurrently. Given the similar hardware and software, making the leap from one to the next is much easier.

The device was originally rooted by XDA Senior Member nycbjr. Soon thereafter, XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx released ClockworkMod recovery for the entire Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P31xx series. Now, XDA Senior Member tapan15in has now created an easy-to-follow root and recovery tutorial for the Tab 2 7.0, and as expected, it’s nearly identical to it’s larger sibling. The tutorial shows users how to install both ClockworkMod recovery and TWRP 2.1 onto the device.

Users looking to root the tablet will need the Samsung drivers provided when they install the Kies application as well as the latest version of Odin. From there, users install ClockworkMod Recovery via Odin, then obtain root via ClockworkMod Recovery. That’s also how most newer Samsung devices are rooted. Tapan15in not only provides the ClockworkMod Recovery image used in rooting the device, but also the update.zip to obtain root, and even the latest version of Odin.

For the full tutorial, head over to the original thread.
