Re: [HOW TO] Gain Root on Samsung Galaxy Tablet

Hmm... can't find it in the market. Even tried the QR barcode. Market says there are no matches for pname:com.z4mod.z4root. Is it still available?

Root will allow you a number of things:
  • Access to the locked system files
  • Ability to remove stock apps
  • Use of memory optimizers to better battery life
And there's a lot more that you can do with root access, which is why I always root all of my Android devices.

Re: [HOW TO] Gain Root on Samsung Galaxy Tablet

Any alternative ways of rooting? I tried this and it's failing, installed busybox though fine, cause I checked it with a root checker, but I can't find it in programs list or anything.. Anyone have any advice? I've looked into a few other things to do with Kies and aren't too sure on those. I don't know exactly which one I should be using, or how it would effect my tab. I just want to root right now, I don't want to flash anything with it.

Re: [HOW TO] Gain Root on Samsung Galaxy Tablet

Z4Root 1.3 fails on my Verizon Galaxy Tab running Froyo and purchased in late March 2011. As far as I can tell, the last time a GT was successfully rooted by anyone using any rooting app including SuperOneClick was sometime in February (?). I'm wondering if the exploit(s) has/have been plugged?

Has anyone successfully rooted a GT lately?

Re: [HOW TO] Gain Root on Samsung Galaxy Tablet

No, I have been unsuccessful with rooting.
Not just rooting and unrooting, but I have been having many technical difficulties with my Tab.

I have downloaded the file that was provided by rainfreak into my computer. So, my plan was trying to connect my Tab through USB and guess what? it says cannot install this MTP device. Drive me crazy really...

I just got two Sprint tabs and I cant either of them rooted using Z4 or Superoneclick. Everytime I use Z4, it never completes. I cant get my computer to recognize my tab as even a storage device.
