Procedure to Root Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus P6200 on Ice Cream Sandwich

Yesterday we showed you the tutorial as to how you can install Jelly Bean on Galaxy Tab Plus P6200. Today we will show you the tutorial as to how you can root Galaxy Tab Plus P6200 on ICS. But for many people rooting may be something that is not required. For them, we would like to explain the importance of rooting an Android phone or tablet. But again, we would also like to say that rooting would take away the warranties and thus you must do it only if you are ready for this minor risk.

After you root your Android phone, you will now be able to remove and modify the pre-installed Apps and installations. Just like in Windows one can have an administrator account, in Linux the administrator is called as root. Thus in an Android phone you will come across the word rooting the android phone. It means, getting access to the higher level (administrative level) permissions. Since Android is Linux, with rooting, there is Super user access to this particular operating system.

It is important to note that rooting the Android device makes the warranty of the device void. But still, developers and tech savvy people are quite a lot excited and thrilled with this procedure as it helps them to attain complete access to the operating system of the device. At one side there is a risk of bricking the phone when you root it, but if you follow the proper instructions and procedures from a legitimate site like www.androidust.com then the chances of such things reduce and the benefits would surely outsmart the risk, by way of features enhancement and other advantage or rooting.

But just like every coin has two sides, you may face some problems too. There are some advantages of rooting as well as disadvantages. But you should be a tech savvy person to find solution of the same. Rooting is something that may expose you to an internal file and the file may be dangerous or malicious. This is one of the drawbacks of the rooting procedure.

To summarize all the above, you can say that, rooting helps you to gain root access to the android operating system in the phone and grants “Superuser” access to the system.

We hope now you have enough idea as to what rooting is. Now let us move back to the main topic and that is rooting Galaxy Tab Plus P6200 on ICS. But before that kindly read the disclaimer.
