Galaxy Pro 12.2 users had to drop quite a bit of money in order to get their hands on the device and they should be able to customize the device in any way they see fit. In this guide we will show you just how to do that in the way of rooting the device. This is going to use CF-Auto-Root.
As normal we do not assume any responsibilities with firmware installation. You should proceed with caution.
Before you get started
Before you get started you should make sure that your Galaxy Pro device is the SM-P901 model.
The normal steps prior to rooting apply here. Make sure you back up the data on your device and also make sure that you charge the device up to 80 percent. Finally, you should make sure you enable USB debugging by going to settings and then to developer options.
Rooting your device
- Download CF-Auto-Root and Odin v3.09.
- Then put your device in download mode by holding the volume down, home and power buttons. When a warning prompt appears, you should then press the volume up button.
- Unzip Odin v3.09 and then right click on the .exe file and run it as an administrator on your PC
- Using the USB cable that came with your device, connect your Galaxy Pro 12.2 to your computer. After you have done this you should see the ID: COMM fields in the Odin application. If this doesn’t happen, then you should look at reinstalling the Samsung drivers on your actual PC
- Within the Odin application, press AP and select the CF-Auto-Root-kltexx-smg900.tar.md5 file.
- Make sure that Re-Partition is deselected, then check Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time.
- Press start and that will begin the installation process. Do not do anything until this finishes.
- Your device should restart and you should now be rooted.
