Have you been waiting for a guide on how to root your Galaxy Tab Plus? Or looking for perfect method to root your Tab plus ( since nowadays rooting is possible in more than one way ─ we’ve SuperOneClick and stuff, right. )
Anyway your wait for the perfect method ends here as XDA member bdigitalstudio has written a good guide on how to root Galaxy Tab Plus. It seems that he found a way to get the rooting process for Galaxy Tab 8.9 to work on Galaxy Tab Plus (which we don’t doubt as both the Tabs share same hardware and software). Maybe he’s tweaked the Galaxy Tab 8.9′s rooting file or he just flashed the original Tab 8.9′s file and it worked for him, he didn’t mention anything about this. But my best guess is he has tweaked the original file to work on Galaxy Tab Plus.
