There are several things to know about the tool which will root the tablet. There’s its name, for one: SRSRoot. Then there’s the fact that you don’t have to pay anything for its download and subsequent installation. Not only does this tool have rooting powers, it also serves as a great unrooting alternative. Getting its power from an SRS Server, this freeware is always up for its job, even if you use a different gadget; there’s no shortage to the devices that are compatible with it. Another thing the SRSRoot doesn’t mind: the OS version your gadget may be sporting. The variant in use on the Galaxy Tab WiFi P1010 is this: Android 2.2.2 Froyo.
The benefits of this procedure
The processor your tablet is accustomed to is 1 GHz Cortex-A8. Released 3 years ago, the device will quickly enjoy a faster CPU. The SRSRoot is an app whose job is to also deliver new stuff. Among that is the presence of battery tweaks to ensure a more generous battery life. The root access means that you can do this, too: personalize the tablet. Another great thing about rooting your gadget is the fact that you’ll soon welcome new features. Numerous root-only apps will be yours for the sampling, too.

Here are the rest of the novelties: admin / superuser permission and custom ROMs. To end up with this app, this guide will need a Build ID that you can choose yourself; our personal pick was FROYO.UJKM5.
