Hi fellas. I've been trying to abstain from starting a new post, but it seemed that my post have not catch any of the expertise attention, hence I've not received any reply for my post under rooting glaaxy tab.
I hope someone out there could give me guidance, on how to root my tab successfully.

Frankly.. I'm very very new to the android field.
Recently I got a second hand Galaxy Tab P1010 (WiFi only), the reason why I got it was because I thought that I could use my iphone 3GS to tether online to my tab. However, I was not able to get any internet access. I read online that it has something to do with adhoc network (still not sure what that means).. and soon found out that I was able to get online using wifi tethering with iphone4 (which belongs to a friend).

My iphone 3GS is jailbroken (4.3.1).. and I do have both MyWi and PdaNet.. I've always love iphone3GS due to its curve back corners - unlike iphone 4 - as such, will not upgrade my phone. However, could someone please guide me on how to root my tab, and gets it online? I am aware that rooting on galaxy tab P1010, froyo 2.2.1 can only be done using superoneclick. However, I do notice that there is a need to download JDK and SDK first before any rooting can be done. Frankly speaking, I have no idea what that is. Infact it got me confused when I learnt that JDK is JAVA. For the record, I got into Java website to download the file, but ended up not knowing which file to download. Same goes for SDK too. Additionally, I was wondering how downloading the two files helps because I was wondering will there be additional interface which I have to navigate besides superoneclick (just click on root tab interface and wait for it to do its magic)

I hope someone kind hearted soul could help/guide me step by step on how to root my tab, and get it working. My other reason for rooting is because I want to be able to fully utilise the space in microSD, and explore this powerful gadget.

I am using PC Windows 7 (64bit).
Samsung Galaxy Tab P1010 (WiFi only.. which means no slot for sim card), Firmware: 2.2.1, Kernel Version:, [email protected], Builder number: FROYO.DXKC2 (I assumed that "unlocking" is not applicable for WiFi Tab, right?) and hope to be able to WiFi tether from a jailbroken iphone 3GS (Firmware: 4.3.1)

NB: A detail description and rationale would be much appreciated by me, and perhaps other GT-P1010 users. Thank you in advance.
