5. Select the kernel file and confirm the install.

6. Go back to the main menu and click reboot system.

7. Enjoy!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E. Restore to stock

THIS WILL WIPE YOUR DATA!

4.0.3 for p5100: https://hotfile.com/...XXALD9.rar.html

4.0.3 for p5110: http://www.hotfile.c...D3_PEO.zip.html

4.0.4 for p5100: http://www.hotfile.c...G1_SER.zip.html

4.0.4 for p3100: http://samsung-updat..._3kdo3qe503.zip (PIT files: 16Gb p3100, 8GB p3100

Note: for more language options for stock ROM's, for the tab 10, go here.

1. Reboot into Download Mode.

2. Unzip/unrar the stock firmware

3. click PDA and find the stock file (PDA/PLATFORM file, the largest one).

4. Click PIT and open the .pit file you downloaded (if one was included with your ROM)

4. OPTIONAL: if you want to flash the bootloader and/or csc, you can select them as well. If you don't know what that means, you don't need to do it.

5. Click Start.

6. Enjoy!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

F. Unroot

THIS WILL NOT WIPE YOUR DATA

NOTE: This has only been tested on the tab 10.1. If you try it on the 7.0, report back with your results.

1. Download Root_Remover.zip and put it onto your sd card.

2. Reboot into recovery.

3. Go to install zip from sdcard>choose zip from sdcard

4. Find Root_Remover.zip and confirm the install.

5. Now get your support and pray they don't check the download counter. (I will make a guide to reset it as soon as someone figures out how)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G. Flash a file with Mobile ODIN

PLEASE NOTE THAT MOBILE ODIN MAY NOT BE WORKING AS OF THIS POST. IT WILL SAY "Rebooting into recovery..." AND THEN JUST STOP. (confirmed on the p5113, likely on other devices)

Using Mobile ODIN is recommended for advanced users only. You must have root.

Using Mobile ODIN will NOT increase your flash counter, and therefore your warranty will remain intact.

1. Extract or copy the file you want to flash to your tablet. If you're flashing a ROM, you only want the PLATFORM/PDA file (.tar.md5) (almost always the largest file)

NOTE: There are no .pit files in Mobile ODIN. They are installed along with your flashkernel.

2. Download either Mobile ODIN pro ($5) OR Mobile ODIN lite (does not include EverRoot, so you will need to re-root using ODIN) and the p51xx FlashKernel from here.

3. Click on Open File... in Mobile ODIN and find the file you want to flash.

4. If you're flashing a ROM, click Recovery and click clear on the window that pops up.

5. If applicable, enable EverRoot.

6. Select both Wipe data and cache and Wipe Dalvik cache

7. Click flash firmware.

THANKS: weltwon for root & unroot method, codeworkx for the newer versions of CWM, count dooku for discovering than TW ROM's don't include a kernel the hard way, invisiblek for testing stock ROM on p5113, and all you devs who make custom ROM's and kernels.

I followed all the steps for rooting exactly and when I had finished Superuser was installed. I went into Superuser's settings and pressed the update button but after the line 'Gaining root access...' it said 'fail!'. Please help.
