A few days ago a root method was released for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 but the method also works on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 but a now a easy root and custom recovery method is available for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, this method specially for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, thanks to senior XDA developer member tapan15in.

However install whichever you like the most, first you’ll install the recovery and then you’ll root the device but do keep in your mind rooting voids the limitations of the manufacturer on the device and gives you Super User rights, there are number of rooting’s benefits but since rooting voids manufacturer limitations, it will also void the warranty of your tablet, so thing carefully before you root.

You’ll need Odin to install the recovery file, USB drivers should be installed on your PC otherwise Odin will not detect the device, download 32 bit (x86) Windows from here and 64-bit (x64) Windows from here. Disable all system tools such as Samsung KIES, antivirus, firewall program, please make a backup of your device data such as SMS, internet setting, contacts music files etc because the below procedure may wipe data, you can sync your contacts with Gmail account and for messages use SMS apps, lastly use file expert app to backup apps.
