Ah, root. It's a sort of coming-of-age test for an Android device, in that brief (and sometimes nonexistent) gap between a phone's retail release and the point at which the modder community beats it into software submission. The time has come for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
, the mild refresh to one of the most successful 10-inch Android tablets out there. Thanks to the folks at XDA,
you can now get both root permissions and a custom recovery on your shiny new tablet.
