Hey TONY6669 . I dunno if you have the critter rooted yet, this is how i did it
Download imnuts' espresso_recovery.tar.md5
(Use if your GT2 came with UEALCB firmware and it has been updated OTA to UEALD3 firmware, or you're running UEALD3 and not sure if it was updated OTA.)
Download xoomdev's espressowifi-recovery-5-18.tar.md5
(Use if your GT2 is currently running UEALCB firmware or came with UEALD3 firmware out of the box.)
Download nycbjr's cwm-root-gtab2.zip
Download Samsung Drivers (Not required if you have already installed Samsung Kies)
Copy cwm-root-gtab2.zip to the ROOT of your sdcard ( /mnt/extSdCard ). This is the sdcard in the slot. The /mnt/sdcard folder is in the internal memory and won't be recognized in recovery.
Turn off your tablet and restart it in download mode by pushing and holding down the Power and Volume DOWN buttons at the same time. Push the Volume UP to get into download mode. Don't plug the tablet into the computer yet.
If you installed Samsung's Kies software, make sure it is closed and not running.
Extract Odin3 v1.85.exe and run it.
Connect the tablet to the computer.
The first box under ID:COM will be yellow and shows the current com port you are connected to. If you can't connect, try another USB port.
In Odin, click the PDA button. Select the espresso_recovery.tar.md5 or espressowifi-recovery-5-18.tar.md5 file you downloaded and click the START button. Let Odin do it's thing. When it's done, the tablet will reboot.
Disconnect the tablet from the computer. Turn the tablet off and restart it in recovery mode by pushing and holding the Power and Volume UP buttons at the same time.
Once you are in recovery, use the volume button to move around and the power button to select an option. Select install zip from sdcard. Choose the cwm-root-gtab2.zip file you already copied to the root of the sdcard.
When the rooting is finished, choose reboot system now in the recovery menu.
That's it. If everything went well, you should now be rooted.
Somehow i am not able to post links. i got this from Rootzwiki (dot) com
