    OK, I can not seem to find a straight answer on this so I thought I would ask here. I have a Samsung Galaxy tab running 2.2, and I would like to root it, but I have heard where people have had issues running z4root on it causing it to lock up. I have it installed but having tried running it yet since I do not want to lock it up. Any suggestions?

    First suggestion is that you provide the name of your tab's wireless carrier. The carriers have skinned their tabs differently such that some one-click root apps will work on one carrier's tab but not on the others.

    I am in the same situation. Mine is Sprint SGT. I got my Z4Root installed and waiting for more suggestions.

    I used to use z4root until Sprint updated to 2.21. Then z4root quit working.

    The page for SuperOnceClick mentions that it fails if you unroot and try to re-root your device. I like to leave my tablet unrooted unless I'm doing development.

    Can anyone elaborate on whether or not this is still the case?
