Steps to root Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3100


Please ensure your important files and apps are backed up and you have sufficient battery.


  1. Download and install USB Drivers on your pc.
  2. Go to menu > settings > applications > Development option> enable USB debugging mode.

  3. Download cf-root and odin and extract them.
  4. Turn off your tab. Press and hold volume down and power buttons together. A warning message will appear on the screen, press volume down button. You'll enter into download mode.

  5. Right click on file odin3 v3.07.exe > run as administrator.
  6. Plug in the USB cable to the tab to connect it with the computer while tab is in the download mode.

  7. Wait for some time until odin detects the tab. When connected successfully, the id: com box will turn blue with the com port number. Also, successful connection will be indicated by an added message in odin.
  8. In odin, click the pda button and select cf-auto-root-espressorf-espressorfxx-gtp3100.tar.md5 file.

  9. Ensure the auto reboot and f.reset time checkboxes are selected in odin. But uncheck the re-partition option.
  10. Click the start button in odin to begin installation.

Once the flashing process is completed, the tab will restart automatically. And soon a pass message with green background will appear in the extreme-left box at the top of odin. When then home screen is seen on the tab's screen, unplug the USB cable from the tablet to disconnect it from the computer . Caution: rooting will void your device's warranty and the process might brick your device.
