Root Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5113 on Jelly Bean 4.2.2 UEUCMH2 Official Firmware

Your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (WiFi) GT-P5113 that was updated to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean UEUCMH2 official firmware can also acquire a rooted status if you want it to. Today’s whole guide is dedicated to precisely this procedure, so consider it for your tablet.

The firmware that works with this particular phone model is CF-Auto-Root. It is best known for its great features (that will make it super easy to apply a makeover to your gadget) and the easy way you can use it for a rooting. The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is, without a doubt, supported by the CF-Auto-Root so that the phone you use can enjoy the full advantages of a rooting procedure.

But the thing to consider very well before you follow our guide: you won’t escape the voiding of your tablet’s warranty. However, you can restore said warranty by using an app called TriangleAway.

Requirements

Let’s find out what requirements you must absolutely be careful of before you root your device:

  • use the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (WiFi) P5113 from Samsung and not another tablet;
  • use the variant which isn’t locked to the factory;
  • turn on USB Debugging;
  • charge the tablet’s battery;
  • create backups so as to keep safe all the data stored on your Tab 2 10.1;
  • flash (on your laptop or PC of choice) only those USB drivers that are meant for your gadget.Galaxy-Tab-2-10.1-P5113

Instructions

  1. This guide of ours is now yours to follow. As such, you should first consider these files: Odin tool v3.07 from this location and the CF-Auto-Root archive (file name: CF-Auto-Root-espresso10wifi-espresso10wifibby-gtp5113.zip).
  2. After you have located them on the Internet, it’s time to download them on your laptop (it’s recommended to use the device’s desktop as download place). Then extract, with an appropriate tool, the content of each of the packages.
  3. Then power the P5113 off and after that follow these tasks to enter the device in Download Mode: simultaneously press + hold Volume Down and Power; when Android logo shows its face on the display (and has a warning triangle to go with it), then press Volume Up and you will have completed the necessary booting into the Download Mode.
  4. What needs to be done next is this: open the Odin as Admin on your notebook, then plug the tablet to your PC. Odin will, in a few seconds, try and detect your gadget.
  5. If the process goes well, you will spot either a message that reads “Added!!” or a COM port number that comes in yellow; use another USB port or instead flash the USB drivers again if the devices haven’t been connected successfully to each other. But, should the plugging have gone 100% as planned, you need to tap PDA while in Odin.
  6. Now choose the CF-Auto-Root-espressowifi-espressowifibby-gtp5t113.tar.md5, check F. Reset Time, then choose Auto Reboot and uncheck Re-partition before you tap START to begin the flashing of the rooting firmware.
  7. As the end of the process nears, you will see that the tablet reboots; a message reading PASS and a background in green should pop up next so that you can finally disconnect the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5113 from your notebook and enjoy your rooted gadget.

Not sure if the rooting went well? There’s an app labelled Root Checker to download on your device. The role it has is simple: it sees if the gadget is rooted on Jelly Bean 4.2.2 UEUCMH2 offficial firmware. So use it on your own tablet, too. Then find root-only apps, custom ROMs and so on to install on the gadget.

    I now this is an old article but I thought I’d give it a try.

    Installation was successful using Odin, but SuperSU gave the error “there is no SU binary installed, and Super SU cannot install it. This is a problem!”

    I already tried updating the app via the google play store. I can’t even uninstall it since it is now a system app.

    These steps worked for me. Thanks so much! One thing I would note though, I tried for about an hour to ensure I had ADB drivers installed because my computer would not recognize the Tab when it was connected and in download mode. Well, it turned out those drivers were fine, I was actually in System Recover, like Lex below. Ensure you hold down the Volume UP button or you will feel like a dumbass once you finally figure it out. 🙂
