How To Root Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Before we start with the actual rooting process we’ll talk about the device itself. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a phone and the same time a tablet computer, running on Google’s Android OS. The device was created by Sasmung and was launched on September 2, 2010, at IFA in Germany.

The Galaxy Tab has a 7-inch TFT-LCD display, it’s powered by a 1.0 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU ( Hummingbird ), supports WiFi connectivity, rear facing camera ( 3.2-megapixel ) and one 1.3-megapixel on the front, and it’s running on Android 2.2.

Developers loved to work for building apps for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because it was rooted very soon after launch. The man behind this is ‘birdman’, member of AllDroid community, who has developed a great tutorial for rooting the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
