Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Rooted, You Won’t Believe How Easy it is

You know that shiny new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that we received yesterday at I/O?  You aren’t going to believe how easy it is to root this thing, so I’m going to walk you through a story of sorts to add to the suspense.

Last night, I’m kickin’ it with @_MRBIRDMAN_@DROD2169, and @b16a2smith.  Pints are flowing, random Android chatter is filling the room, and then the 3 of them drop word that they’ll be rooting this new toy of ours tonight (as in last night).  So around midnight, we all part ways, some of us stumbling and 2 hours later…we have root.

All you have to do is download this file:  allidoiswin.zip

Then push it in adb to your SD card.  Reboot into recovery.  Apply the file.  Enjoy root.

*Note - There is no way it’ll be this easy on the official release.

    Probable Cause. If a commander has probable cause that a person is under
    the influence of drugs, the commander can request a search
    authorization from the Installation Commander, who is authorized to
    issue “military search warrants” after consultation with the JAG. Again,

    “There is no way it’ll be this easy on the official release.” – Samsung’s promised to make rooting easier via keeping bootloaders unlocked, so there’s reason for hope.

    So i guess the question that everyone wants answered is, what kind of processor is under the hood? is it Tegra2 or is it the new exynos processor? Any answers?

      Excellent. I think the same applies when playing video games and/or pool. You drink just a little too much and your game just goes to sh1t.
