Hi all

I hope this is in the right section of the forum ?.

Any way.

I have a Galaxy tab 2 10.1 p5110

I have been trying for a few days to install CM10 and managed to complete this. The problem started when I went to check if the tab was rooted and it cam back with a NO. So I tried to install root again via CW which seemed to install fine but still no Root, I then cam across a thread saying I could try to install via Odin so I tried this method which failed the first time, so I tried again. The tab now is saying that I must start a recovery mode in KIES I have tried booting in CW and download mode but to no avail.

I have searched the net and people recommend that I download KIES and start from there.

Is this the best solution as Im hit a wall now.

Thanks peeps

hi.. to use those you have to root first . then install busybox and superuser. theres an file to root - universal gingerbread root - download it then with tab in recovery mode select update file ... it will install then it will reboot.. if your running icecream sandwich theres root file for it too.. check xda-developers forums they cover it all quite well there.. my english is limited.. hope was help...
