    The original method used to root the I/O Tab (referenced here) is incorrect. After a few hours helping someone fight through issues, turns out it was the simplest problem. Read on.


    A full build of busybox, correct su, superuser, and misc system tools is now available for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. I can vouch this works on the I/O version, and was told it works fine on the 10.1v with an unlocked bootloader.

    Grab the file here, and flash as normal:
    copy zip file to storage
    power off
    hold Vol down + power to reboot to recovery
    flash file via menu

    The problem arises if you have used to first "root" version floating around. It's placing su in the wrong location, and causing things not to work if you flash this. Because the AllDroid version places su in /system/bin/, flashing this file doesn't over write it when it places su where it belongs (in /system/xbin/). It stills says you're rooted, but apps can't get superuser privileges.

    It's an easy fix

    Plug the Tab into your Computer, open a terminal in your SDK/platform-tools folder and do the following:

    Code:
    adb devices
    adb remount
    adb shell
    cd /system/bin/
    ls
    (Verify the file su is present)
    cd /system/xbin/
    ls
    (verify su is there)
    cd /system/bin/
    rm su
    exit
    adb reboot
    Edit -- not for the retail version. Didn't think it would work, but verified.

    Does this method work with the newly released SG Tab 10.1 with 3.1 Honeycomb on it?

    Probably not. Unless you're comfortable working on a device that won't boot and fixing it, hold off until some things are confirmed.

    We'll be separating I/O Tab, retail Tab, and 10.1v Tab stuff here once we find the differences. For now, assume everything you see for the Tab doesn't work for the retail version, just to be safe.

    I have a new device that won't boot and would love to fix it

    Is there anything I can do? When I first let the battery die, I plugged it into the charger and got the charging icon. A little while later I unplugged it, tried to get it to boot to no avail, put it back on the charger and now I get no charging indicator. Power does nothing, power + volume does nothing, power + touch does nothing, power for longer than 15 seconds does nothing too... is there anything I can try to get this thing working if I hook it up to my PC? I haven't rooted it, for the record.

    Any news on whether the Google I/O Galaxy Tab will get ICS officially from Samsung? If not, does anyone know how to get a hold of a Jelly Bean variant for this Tab? Love to lose honeycomb once and for all.

    [EDIT] Decided to not wait for Samsung and found this JB AOSP ROM on XDA - [ROM][JB][AOSP][ALPHA] Android 4.1.1 - Jelly Bean - [GT-P7510][SCH-I905] http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1765254 . Loving it so far. [/EDIT]
