If you own any of these devices and looking for a way to root and install the ClockworkMod recovery on it, below you will find a lucid tutorial that will escort you to do so safely.

Make Some Preparations:

There are certain things that you require to before jumping to the rooting your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 WiFi and installing ClockworkMod Recovery on it.

  • Make sure you have installed Samsung Kies or Samsung USB Drivers on your computer. If you have Samsung Kies installed on your computer, you need not install the USB Drivers but make sure that Kies is not open while you are going through the rooting stuff.
  • Download the appropriate CF-Root file from the link below and extract the zip to get the file with .tar extension. If you are not sure about your device model number, check it from Settings> Abouttab 2 device info
  • Download the CWM flashable SuperUser package from below. Do not extract the zip and copy it to the root/main directory of your Tab’s SD Card (not in a folder).
  • Backup or sync all important data such as contacts, messages and apps present on your Galaxy Tab. Backup your contacts, call-logs, messages, APNs, bookmarks, calendar, apps & games using these nice free apps.
  • Charge the device’s battery  to at least 70% battery level.
  • Go to Settings of your Tab 2 and enable USB Debugging mode from Settings> Developer options.

Download the Resources and Tools:

1.  Download Odin3_v1.85.zip and extract the zip to your desktop.

3. Download and install either Samsung USB Drivers or Kies on your computer: Download

2. Download CF-Auto-Root zip package for your Galaxy Tab 2, depending on its model number and extract (unzip) it on your desktop to get the file with .tar extension:

3.  If you also wish to install custom ROMs or mods on your Galaxy Tab 2, you need to flash the ClockworkMod Recovery on it. Download the CWM file corresponding to your device model:

Installing Root Package on Galaxy Tab 2:

  1. Make sure you have  copied the SuperUser file to the device as directed above.
  2. Turn off your Tab and boot it into Download mode. Press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons simultaneously. On the next screen press Volume Down to confirm and continue to enter into Download Mode. In case you have Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (P31XX models), press and hold Volume Down + Power buttons to get into the Download mode.
  3. Open the extracted Odin folder and double click and run Odin3 v1.85.exe as administrator.
  4. Now hook up your device to computer via USB Cable and wait till the ID:COM port at Odin turms yellow and you see “Added!! text at the message box on Odin. GALAXY TAB2 Odin root
  5. Make sure that only Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time  options are ticked on Odin.
  6. Now click on PDA button and select .tar file from the CF-Auto-Root folder.
  7. Having selected the file, hit the Start button and let Odin install the root package on to your device.
  8. When the installation is finished and you get a PASS! message, your device will reboot automatically.
  9. Disconnect the USB cable and wait till the device boots up.

Thus the CF-Auto-Root package that contains SuperSU has been installed on your tab.

How to Install CWM Recovery on Galaxy Tab 2:

Having successfully rooted your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, you can also consider installing ClockworkMod Recovery on it. If so, the steps are almost the same as those you followed above while rooting the device using Odin. The only thing that differs is that this time you have to select the CWM file with .tar extension after clicking the PDA button on Odin.

  1. Turn off the device and put it into download mode.
  2. Launch Odin and connect device to computer.
  3. Click on PDA button and select the CWM (ClockworkMod) file with .tar extension downloaded from above.
  4. Then hit the Start button and wait till installation finishes, you see PASS!! message on Odin and your tab reboots.
  5. Disconnect the USB cable now.

How to Reboot Galaxy Tab 2 in Recovery Mode:

    • For Tab 2 7.0 users: Boot your device into Recovery mode: press and hold Volume Up+Power buttons together for a few seconds till the screen turns up.
    • For Tab 2 10.1 users: To boot your Tab 2 10.1  into Recovery mode, hold Volume Down+Power buttons till you see Samsung logo with device name and then release the Power button. When you see 2 icons, release the Volume Down button too. Use the Volume Down key to navigate between the 2 icons and Volume Up to select it. Highlight the the left icon (box) and then select it using Volume Up to enter recovery mode.
  1. In Recovery mode, use the volume buttons to navigate and the power key to select an option or file.

To verify if the rooting was successful, download the Root Checker app from the Play Store and run it.

    thank you Steve :D

  • Steve

    If you root your device you can delete those programs. You’ll need to install a third party app that can do it though. I used Titanium Backup to do it.

    You can get it in the play store, but it needs super user access to work.

  • DroidViews

    dontas Yes.

  • dontas

    Can I root the same for ssamsung tab 2 gtp 3100 4.1.2

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Download Rom Manager, run the app and select Reboot Clockworkmod.

  • cochran10

    How can I verify that the Clockwork mod is installed?

    The root worked correctly, but I don’t know how to check for clockwork

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Download the PhilZ recovery for your Tab and install it using Odin. Then boot the device into recovery mode and install SuperSU: http://download.chainfire.eu/351/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip

  • Rajj

    ow ok.. that clears me.. but i’ve got tons of question here, hope you dont mind bro Rakesh..

    OK! my P3113 is newly updated with JB 4.2.2, im thinking to root it.

    My question is, is there still programs that i must put on my TAB first before proceeding for rooting?

    or can i just simply root my TAB even it is newly flash with a JB 4.2.2?

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Download the latest SuperSU Zip and flash it using CWM recovery: http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu

    Or, get the latest Apk and install it manually: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.supersu

  • Rajj

    Bro Rakesh, i have here a GT-P3113 with a JB 4.2.2, let say i’ve successfully rooted my TAB, so after that you must update the SuperSU to its latest build right?

    my question is how can i update it without the use of Wi-Fi? or lets say i dont have a Wi-Fi? do you have an updated SupeSU build so i wont be updating it as soon ive rooted my TAB?

  • jason

    Thanks, it worked!!!

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Yes.

    Download this recovery file and install via Odin:

    Then boot device into recovery mode and install the SuperSU zip: http://download.chainfire.eu/351/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip

  • jason

    Will this work on the Jellybean 4.2.2?

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Hi Jamice, unfortunately there is no rooting exploit for your Tab yet. :(

  • Jamice Welbon

    Where is the Sprint Version? SPH-P500?

  • http://www.e-islam.tk mtik

    Worked perfectly on my Samsung GT-P3100 with JellyBean 4.1.2 (Indian version) Thanks so much!

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Confusions culminated in happy ending. :) Glad to know, mate.

  • Mike Gee

    Thank you very much Rakesh i have successfully rooted it

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Confusion again! LOL. Actually .tar is a package itself that contain SuperSU which is pushed inside the device when you install CF-Root using Odin. You need not extract the “CF-Auto-Root-espressowifi-espressowifiue-gtp3113.tar” file, just flash it via Odin. That’s it. :)

  • Mike Gee

    Inside the zip file? because there is only the tar file “CF-Auto-Root-espressowifi-espressowifiue-gtp3113.tar” and the Odin files or do you mean implemented within the CF Auto root Tar file? Sorry just want to be clear

  • Mike Gee

    Thanks for the timely Response

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Hi Mike the CWM flashable SuperSU zips were taken down when I updated the post last time and added CF-Auto-Root packages that has it inside them.

    I made changes in the post accordingly but seem to have missed that sentence. Anyway, better late than never!

  • Mike Gee

    Hello,

    I’m not sure if i am looking at this wrong but what is the “CWM flashable SuperUser package”?.Because i don’t see anything labeled “CWM flashable SuperUser package” for me to download. I am new to rooting so i am not sure if that package is also considered something else such as the clockwork mod or the CF Auto root seeing as those are the only things available for download.

    Thanks

  • IA

    yes it goes into download modebut not into recovery mode. like pressing and holding power + volume up doesnt work. it takes me to recovery mode after recovery reaches 25% it dies with green guy and red triangle. but if i press volume down +power it takes me to download mode. but i dont know if i can fix by going in there
    plz help me

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    You can’t install firmware without entering the download mode. Did you try the key combo to get into download mode?

  • IA

    i m in Indiana, USA. ho wcan i install official firmware. it doesnt go over samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1 logo. doesnt go to recovery mode. it goes into download mode

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    I would recommend you to install the official firmware first. Where are you from?

  • IA

    hi! i have galaxy tab 2 p5113 not rooted. i ran an update now it is stuck on samsung logo screen. if i go into recovery mode it gets to 25% and then dies with red triangle. it does go into download mode. u think this could fix my tablet. if i root and install cwm.

  • CJ

    Thank you! I love you! :)

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    As long as you have JB, it will work.

  • CJ

    My Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (P3110) has Android 4.2.2 (UK). Will this work? Thanks!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hi, I went through the tutorial again but did not find any ambiguity in the steps given above. I am unable to guess what is confusing in this part of the sentence and where is the contradictory part -“Do not extract the zip and copy”.

    Where did I say not to copy root files: “Don’t transfer root files to device”

  • saxojon

    It was just a bit confusing for someone whos never rooted a device before. To me, those sentences contradicted them selves at first glance (Don’t transfer root files to device, make sure files are transfered as directed above). Since I didn’t wanna brick my handset I was very worried I’d screw it up, but after some tinkering I found out what to do and that its actually really simple to do. So thanks, I guess. :-)

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    What do you mean?

  • saxojon

    “Download the CWM flashable SuperUser package from below. _Do not_ extract the zip and copy it to the root/main directory of your Tab’s SD Card (not in a folder).”

    “Make sure you have copied the SuperUser file to the device as directed above.”

    *Mistake?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes the recovery works and can even install ROMs but some ROMs might not install. Play with a lower or higher version and try installing CM again: http://d-h.st/users/philz_touch/?fld_id=16057#files

  • anuragr

    :( that is the exact recovery I used. I’ve used all links from your articles. Hasn’t happened. I know that the recovery works because I had to use it to restore the backup when the mod flashing failed.
    Thanks.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Status 7 error occurs when the recovery system is not up-to-date. Install the latest recovery: http://d-h.st/3XF

    Then try again. As for Gapps, install the latest Gapps package for CM from here: http://droidviews.com/2012/download-google-apps-gapps-for-your-android-device-on-gbicsjb/

  • anuragr

    Thanks. :)
    Was able to root but not able to install cm 10.1 got the type 7 error. Using a gt p5113. Could you link me to a working zip? For cm and the gapps that would go with it. I havent been able to find it, even looking at the cm website. I.e. the gapps to go with the last available nightly build.
    Thanks a ton!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Press and hold the power key to reboot the device then start over again.

  • anuragr

    I forgot to copy the file to the SD card before trying this stuff. also forgot to put developer mode. Now it is stuck in Downloading. Do not turn off target!!! What do I do?

    Thanks

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    As I told the Guide was updated with a different method a few days ago, I forgot to change the word “CWM” with CF-Root in step 7. The rest of the steps are clear enough.
    Anyway, I have tried to incorporate your suggestion!

  • Samale Matina

    Hi, thanks for responding.
    The image wasn’t confusing, it was the instructions and the steps.
    Perhaps you can add your comment to the instructions as well that “the CF-Auto Root contains SuperSU”.

    If it doesn’t matter which tar is installed first the perhaps you can remove this line from your instructions “The users of Tab 2 P3100, 33110, P3113 and P5113 will have to install the root package after installing the CWM Recovery from above.”

    In the section titled “Installing Root Package on Galaxy Tab 2″, step 7 should say that you are Rooting the phone in this section by applying the CF-Auto Root tar file.
    Because in the next section you apply the CWM tar file using odin.

    thanks

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Are you having this issue after rooting the device?

  • Lourde Harold Sibayan

    Hi guys. just want to report that my tab crashes when I put it in sleep mode or pressing the power button once to turn off the screen. What happens is that when you try again pressing it to turn it on, it won’t wake up. I need to depress the power button to force it shutdown and reboot.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Look, there are 2 files to be installed: the CF-Auto Root that contains the SuperSU and a separate CWM file. They are installed using the same steps via Odin. If you are confused by the Odin screenshot because it shows CWM, it doesn’t make a any difference if you install the recovery or SU first.

    The guide had a different method earlier and I updated it just a week ago and forgo to change the Odin image.

  • Samale Matina

    Hi,
    very confused with this guide. I can’t find the SuperUser download link in the article.

    In the section “Download the Resources”, you end up with two .tar files.

    In the section “Installing Root Package on Galaxy Tab 2″ it says to copy SuperUser file to device. But there is no link to the SuperUser file.
    In this section is also says “select CF-Auto-Root” .tar file in Odin and that it will install CWM Recovery.(point 7)

    But in the next section “How to Install CWM Recovery on Galaxy Tab 2″ it talks about installing ClockworkMod Recovery ? which is what we did in the previous section point 7.
    Can the author please correct the instructions and fix the ordering of steps.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    I f you have bought your Tab recently, it should already be on JB 4.1. In that case you need not update the device and continue with it.

  • NewDroid

    What
    about the Samsung update? should I do that before rooting? or should I
    avoid updating at all cost?? just got my galaxy tab2 7″. Thanks

  • mov

    You can count on it!
    Thanks

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    I’ll be doing that soon too. Stay tuned!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    My pleasure! Keep visiting!

  • mov

    It worked like a charm! Now all I need is a custom recovery and a custom rom like cyanogenmod and I’m all set. Thanks again for your support!

  • Vik

    Thank you so much,now GT 3110 is rooted!!

  • mov

    I will certainly try it this morning! In the meantime, is there a custom recovery and a custom rom (maybe cyanogenmod) that you could recommend?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    It doesn’t matter. The rooted firmware features 4.1.2 too. So you lose nothing. However, I’ll not force you to do that. You free to decide your course. It’s the safest method to root your device now.

  • mov

    Thanks for the reply. What if I already have 4.1.2 pushed via OTA?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    The most reliable method for rooting the Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 SCH-I705 is by flashing the pre-rooted firmware. Download this: http://goo.gl/RWhGt

    Extract the zip and install it using Odin. The method is already given above.

  • mov

    I didn’t see it listed however, is there a root method for model number SCH-i705 by chance?

    I can´t get access to CWM Recovery on Galaxy Tab2 7.0 Gt 3110 after installing via Odin.Every reboot leads to Android System Recovery instead

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    The zip needs to be installed via Cwm recovery. Install cwm recovery via odin first and then flash the zip.

  • yk

    Btw, do i need to unzip this CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip on my tab sir?

  • yk

    I did that but i am getting this error code
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verification failed

    Pls help..sir

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes, just open the ext sd and copy the file here.

  • yk

    Hi. It asked me to copy CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip to the root/main directory of your Tab’s SD Card (not in a folder). but i do not see this root/main at all..Is it referring to external sd card sir?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Install the .tar file with Odin and supersu.zip using CWM

  • yk

    Btw, do i need to unzip this file that i had moved over to my SD card Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip

  • yk

    Hi. very sorry to disturb you again but i am a bit confused with point # 4

    Also download the ClockworkMod Recovery file according to your device model. Having downloaded the zip, do not forget to extract the zip where you will find the .tar file. If you have downloaded a .tar file, you need not extract it.

    Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 P3100: GT-P3100_ClockworkMod-Recovery_6.0.1.0_2.Tar (CWM only)

    do i download this on my phone or pc?

    This worked very well for me, thank you! Only thing different on my P3100 seems to be that I had to press the power button + volume *Down* to get into download mode, and power button + volume *Up* to get recovery mode. (So exactly the other way around as it shows in the article.). Not sure if that’s just me. (Thailand purchased Tab 2 7.0 (P3100).

    So I didn’t root it properly? or?

  • Arian

    You said “Hold power until the screen goes black to
    get out of download mode. Do not turn on the device and boot it into
    Recovery mode. Press and hold Volume Down + Power buttons together till the Samsung logo with the device model flickers followed by a black screen with blue text.”But when I hold power,the device turns on and when I see the Samsung logo with the device model,I press and hold Volume Down + Power buttons.But a black screen with white text appears and the device reboots after 10 seconds.What should I do?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    If you will try to flash the su zip via stock recovery, you will get this error.

    Make sure the Samsung USB Drivers are installed (link is in the post), also that USB Debugging is turned on in device. Restart PC and device and try agail. It is a connection problem.

    cf-root file in tar is for desktop and is used with odin.

    where do I paste the file with tar extension after extracting the cf root file.

    Plug USB cable and connect to computer. Open My Computer and click on the drive that shows your tab’s files, and copy the zip file here. You can copy the file anywhere actually. Just remember the location and select it in recovery as described.

    what model do you have?

  • greg

    once almost everything is done and when i’m in recovery mode i don’t have the option “install zip from sd card” so i selected “apply update from external storage” but then it says failed to verify whole-file signature.
