How to Root Galaxy Tab 7.0 SGH-T849 (T-Mobile)

There’s a very quick way to improve Galaxy Tab 7.0 SGH-T849 (T-Mobile). And that is through a certain procedure: a rooting. If performed as instructed below, root access will quickly appear on your tablet.

The tablet you own has only to win from today’s rooting. The gadget first came out 4 years ago. That’s why it features Android 2.2 Froyo and a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 CPU. But this isn’t a bad thing; as it goes, SRSRoot will make everything feel brand new. This rooting app is going to improve the processor’s speed and keep the Android version. The dedicated application we’re using is free and it is suitable for no matter what device you’re using. As mentioned, the tablet’s OS won’t get deleted; the app works with all of the Android variants released thus far.

The benefits of this procedure

Your gadget’s rooting is going to need a Build ID. Our option was FROYO.UVJJB; you are given free hand to use another one since the SRSRoot is compatible with many others. A rooting that’s done with this tool means that your tablet can sport admin and superuser permission. The device will gain customization options as well as root-only apps. Also available are plenty of battery tweaks; once installed, battery life will be superior.Galaxy-Tab-7.0-SGH-T849

The SRSRoot offers you the possibility to revoke root access, too. The freeware is powered by an SRS Server. New features are delivered by it, too. Your tablet won’t be bothered by bloatware. Instead, it will have custom ROMs. This procedure won’t put in danger of dealing with security problems; the app is free of viruses.

Your smartphone isn’t going to get access to its warranty once the root access is a done thing. A restoration can always be done, though, if you search for the appropriate guide to work for your tablet. Once you come upon the right update firmware for the Galaxy Tab T-Mobile 7.0 SGH-T849, you can upgrade it. But if there is root access on said tablet, the update will soon revoke the root access and erase its system partition. Your tablet shall retain its internal / external SD cards. And it will also continue to feature its crucial content.


To perform the rooting, your phone has to be well-prepared. For that, look through these requirements:

  • the OS running on your laptop has to be Windows;
  • the same drivers will then have to be flashed on the device you downloaded them on;
  • USB drivers which are only compatible with the tablet should be download on the laptop from here;
  • charge the Samsung SGH-T849 only if its battery levels are very low;
  • protect the tablet’s data by providing some backups (the regular kind);
  • you are also required to perform a full NANDroid backup;
  • the tablet’s security programs shouldn’t be turned off during the rooting;
  • after you’ve turned them on, go to the laptop and turn its own security programs on.

Step by step instructions

You can finally get into the rooting of your tablet.

  1. The first step you are asked to perform is the following: get the SRSRoot app downloaded and installed on your laptop. There is a certain location where you’ll find this app at. Go there and click on its download button.
  2. When the freeware’s flashed, launch it on the laptop. Now you should enable Unknown Sources.
  3. To turn this option on, you’ll have to see where it is first. To locate it, we recommend doing this: tap Menu and after that Settings; when the latter’s launched, search for the Unknown Sources under it.
  4. Move on by tapping USB Debugging next. This step is recommended for those of you who haven’t enabled that option till now.
  5. After you activate it as suggested, you should plug the SGH-T849 to the laptop with a USB cord. The cable comes with your tablet. Once the devices are in a connection at last, you can begin the rooting phase.
  6. [sc name=”banner-jos”]We advise you to do this by searching for Root Device (All Methods). After you come across it, it’s best that you tap it to activate the whole procedure.
  7. Then wait for the rooting to end; this will only take 11 minutes. Should these 11 minutes turn into 20, you have to go back and redo the steps.
  8. You will need to start your Galaxy Tab T-Mobile 7.0 SGH-T849 again after the completion of the rooting. The tablet has an option for that: Reboot System Now. Tap the latter, then allow it to do its job.

Then, after the tablet’s rebooted, go and enjoy its newly acquired root access. If there is nothing you like about the goodies, use the same freeware application to strip the tablet off its root access.
