Earlier today, I’ve written a tutorial on how to root the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. However after rooting, there may be instances whereby you need to unroot your device for instance, when you want to trade-in to your mobile carrier. So for the benefit of those who wants to unroot their tablet, I’ve also come out with a tutorial on how to unroot the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Similarly, this procedure only works for the following models : P5100, P5110 and P5113.
*Please note that this procedure will only work on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that was rooted using this procedure.
- Download both Odin ( it’s the same as the one that you’ve used to root the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 ) and Stock Firmware to your PC, and then extract the archives to your desktop.
- Launch the Odin application.
- On the program, click on PDA and then select the .tar file ( from the stock firmware ).
- On the Odin program, ensure that only both Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes are checked.
- Turn off your device.
- Reboot the tablet into download mode by pressing on the Volume Down key and Power button simultaneously for a moment.
- After the tablet boot into the download mode (make sure the repartition box is unchecked), connect it to your PC via the USB cable.
- Click on the start button on the program.
- Wait patiently for a moment until it reboot …… Congratulation you’ve successfully unrooted your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1!
- Now your tablet is reverted back to the stock ROM, and you are officially free to install any official updates (most probably Jelly Bean ? ) from Samsung.
Simple isn’t it? Yeah, but even though it is simple, but do be very cautious during the process to ensure your device doesn’t brick by your mistake! Full credits of this procedure goes to these guys from xda-developers! However if you need any help during the process, you can also comment below this post.
