Biggest thanks to Chainfire of XDA who shared with us the CF-Root kernel for rooting the Samsung Galaxy Tab running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. Now, Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab can now root their devices in just a simple steps ahead. CF-Root is built upon the stock Samsung kernel and adds root, Busybox and ClockworkMod recovery to it.

This kernel is meant only for the GSM version of the Galaxy Tab and if you wanted to try it out on another variant shall do so without any support from the developer.
