Now this DOES root a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Rooting an Android device requires that you override the stock recovery manager to point to the SDcard so that you can run scripts to grant super user permissions. This is similar to booting a PC into safe mode to recover files and repair the system. Follow these steps to root aka gain super user (SU) access
  1. Run ICS stock on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. (Factory reset and do not install Samsung updates)
  2. Download root tools from http://www.4shared.com/zip/JZn8aVQs/root_requiredfiles.html
  3. One can also download the required Micro SD card files from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1788625 (scroll down to find them)
  4. Carefully follow the directions at

  5. List of all files used.
    1. Odin3 v1.85.exe(this overwrites the stock recovery manager with Clock Work Mod(CWM))
    2. Fix-Recovery.zip (copied to external sd card)
    3. cwm-root-gtab2.zip (copied to external sd card)

This does not work on a Galaxy TAB 2.0 7inch, but for grins and giggles, I am using Tom's Guide to try for super user access on Ice Cream Sandwich.

Galaxy Tab 2, ICS and Flash

Developing presentations in both Flash and Powerpoint, I found it necessary to install the Flash player for Ice Cream Sandwich on a Galaxy Tab 2, 7 inch tablet. This is the download link. So is this.

Kernel Panic

Per Leo Laporte, The Tech Guy One can access the Parameter RAM or PRAM, which is similar to the Windows/Intel BIOS, by rebooting the Mac and holding the [command] + [option] + [p] + [r] keys. Per me, one can also boot into safe mode on a Mac by holding the [shift] key. Then look at the Activity Monitor.
