The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is one of the most useful tablets that I’ve had the opportunity to get to own. The 7.7’s size lends itself well to carrying around with you almost everywhere you go, and is not so big that it’s a chore to do so.

Unfortunately, it runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb and rooting has been a little complicated. After quite a bit of research I’ve been able to put together a method that’s relatively easy, tested to work on the WiFi version of the tablet, and doesn’t require KIES or Odin. (If you’ve got an HSPA+ or LTE version and want to try we’d love to hear your results in the comments!)

Before you get started, like any other rooting procedure, you acknowledge that you’re doing so at your own risk and are probably voiding your warranty. If you’re okay with that, here’s what you need to do:

0. You’ll need a microsd card

0. Make sure you have a full charge on your tablet

1. Download the root.zip to the root of your sdcard

2. If it’s not already there, insert the microsd card into your Galaxy Tab 7.7

3. Turn off your tablet (full power down) by pressing and holding the power button and selecting “Power Off”, then “Ok”

4. Boot into Recovery mode by holding Volume Up button and the Power button at the same time

5. When you see the Galaxy Tab logo release the Power button, but continue holding the Volume Up button

6. When you see yellow text saying #MANUAL MODE # and Copying and “Appling” messages, release the Volume Up key

7. When you see the blue “Android system recovery” menu use the Volume Down button to highlight “apply update from external storage” then press the Power key to select it

8. Use the Volume Down button to highlight root.zip (which you downloaded in step 1) and press the Power button so select it

9. The blue menu will go away and yellow text will scroll on the screen to show you it’s “Installing ROOT”

10. When the blue menu returns, use the Volume keys to highlight “reboot system now” and press the Power button to select it (your tablet will now reboot)

11. Head to the Google Play store and download and install Superuser

That’s it! You’ve now got ROOT!
