Default Vzw galaxy tab root guide?

I am looking for an easy root guide for the vzw galaxy tab. I am coming from the Dinc root world, which I was in from the beginning. I feel a bit lost here with all of the various galaxy tabs. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Nevermind. Z4Root takes care of that in a snap.

I was not able to find Z4 when I used the barcode or searched in the market on my VZW tab. Can you tell me how to get it?

Follow this link. The app is not in the market so you have to Download the .apk and install it from your SD card.

Nothing yet. I cannot find much in the way of development for the model I have, SCH-I800. Everyone seems to have GSM tabs.

It is a little disappointing, but this is a good tablet as is. I will probably do some voodoo this weekend... or sell it and get something else.

I'm thinking there are only 3 of us thy have the vzw tab, I love mine I just wish it had more development in the vzw model. Netflix, July would be nice to have sitting in an airport or in my "off hours " at work.
Btw I also have a Dinc. Rooted that's my tablet internet connection.

XDA. Has a much more active gtab section but even then not much is for Verizon. I have the same phone rooted but my tab has data as well. I use wifi most of the time but if I need it I have it or my Inc as back up. We really need to get this forum going

I have been reading XDA for a good week now. Lots of good information, but a lot of it assumes you know this or that, and the people there are not very willing to teach. I am super busy at work right now, but as soon as I get the process down and get some free time, I will try to type up a guide for CWM and Voodoo.

Yeah not the friendliest folk over there. It does seem like Verizon tabs have some issues with custom rom's. Since z4 all I did was the xt4 conversion by the Verizon bootstrap app. Look forward to your posts here.

I just got my Verizon Tab about 2 weeks ago. So I take it Z4root will root it, but there isn't much more going on for it? I haven't rooted it yet, but after I do can I still download and install Rom MGR to at least be able to back up?

From what I understand, you cannot do much in the way of backing up your system without a custom recovery such as CWM (clockworkMod), So Rom manager will be worthless until you install CWM. There are a couple of custom Roms and some sound and OC (overclocking) hacks, but there is not a N00b proof guide for any of it. Galaxy S is a pain in the ass compared to HTC's Sense. There is an app (SGS kernel flasher, which will allow you to backup your stock kernel. I recommended doing that before anything. If you screw something up you can reinstall that kernel via Odin or Heimdall and save your tab from a brick. I would not recommended doing ANYTHING(beyond basic root) until you learn Heimdall and/or Odin.

Yeah I think I might just root it so I can use a few root only apps. I play around on my OG D1 enough to where I feel like I don't really need to on the tab.

Some people were able to root with z4 after the update; others, not and I was one of those. There's a related thread in this subforum where SuperOneClick was suggested as an alternative. It worked for me.

I got it from developer's web site, shortfuse.org

It's also available on xda-developers forum. You have to be registered to download.

Got my tab as free device with new line, not planning to use it with service at all, so upgrading to ICS would be a nice change.

SCH-i800, Firmware 2.3.5, Kernel 2.6.35.7, Hardware I800.0.3

Tried latest one click - didnt work, dies on step7

Tried DooMLoRD_v4_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su.zip - didnt work:
[-] Zerglings did not leave interesting stuff
--- WAITING FOR DEVICE TO RECONNECT
if it gets stuck over here for a long time then try:

Press any key to continue . . .


z4 doesnt work either - after clicking on permanent root, it exists after 15 or so seconds, and the tablet becomes very slow until reboot.

Default vzw galaxy tab 2.3.5

what's the latest way to root? I've had my tab only for a few months. Just learned about rooting. All the posts are contradictory. What do I do and where do i start?

Same results on my GT using z4, super1click, and zergrush. Are we doomed?

Take a look at the thread I started a while back... "How to install ICS on your galaxy tab" or something like that. It's all u need. Plus you can install a Jellybean nightly right over ICS if you prefer.

I can not take any credit for this just passing along what i found. this will work for the SCH i800 Verizon galaxy tab I can not say it will work work for any other devices. Please do your research before using this on any other devices!!!!!!!

This was very user friendly easy to use.

Heimdall (c) 2010 Benjamin Dobell, Glass Echidna
Heimdall – Glass Echidna

DISCLAIMER:

This software attempts to flash your Galaxy Tab device. The very nature of
flashing is dangerous. As with all flashing software, Heimdall has the
potential to damage (brick) your phone if not used carefully. If you're
concerned, don't use this software. Flashing ROMs onto your phone may also
void your warranty. I am not responsible for the result of your actions.



These instructions were written for Windows Vista / Server 2008 however the producedure
should be essentially the same for all supported versions of Windows (XP onwards).

Troubleshooting:

1. You get an error as follows:

The program can't start because MSVCP100.dll is missing from your
computer.

This means that you haven't installed the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010
runtimes. The runtimes can be downloaded from:

Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center


Driver Installation Instructions:

1. Put your Samsung Galaxy Tab into download mode and plug it in.

2. Run zadig.exe included in the Drivers subdirectory.

3. From the menu chose Options -> List All Devices.

4. From the USB Device list chose "Samsung USB Composite DEvice".

5. Press "Install Driver", click "Yes" to the prompt and if you receive
a message about being unable to verify the publisher of the driver
click "Install this driver software anyway".

6. Done


Driver Uninstallation Instructions:

1. Put your Samsung Galaxy Tab into download mode by holding Volume Down + Home + Power.

2. Plug your phone into your PC.

3. Open up Device Manager on your PC (Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager).

4. Under "Libusb (WinUSB) devices" right click on "Samsung USB Composite Device" and chose Properties.

5. Go to the Driver tab and select Update Driver.

6. Chose to browse your computer for the driver.

7. Chose to pick from a list of devices drivers on your computer.

8. Pick the original Samsung Composite driver, press next and then follow the prompts.

9. Done



Flashing Firmware with Heimdall Frontend:

1. Fully charge your device (use the wall charger as it's faster).

2. Download a decrypted Samsung Galaxy Tab ROM and extract it to a directory.

3. If the ROM is provided as one of more archives (nested or otherwise),
extract them all to the same location.

NOTE: If you want to use the CSC then extract it last.

3. Open Heimdall Frontend.

4. Put your Galaxy Tab device into download mode and plug it in.

5. For each file you wish to flash use "Browse" to select the file.

6. Press "Start".

7. Heimdall Frontend will display the progress and inform you when the
flash is complete.
