For those of you who want to root your Galaxy Tab (the 7-inch original not 10.1), there’s an easy way to root it using SuperOneClick program.
Here’s how to root your Galaxy Tab:
1. First, for those of you NOT on Windows XP, Vista, 7 or Ubuntu/Debian, you need to download and install Mono, which is a program that let’s you run Microsoft .NET programs.
For Mac iOS, download Mono for Mac here.
For other operating systems, you can check the Mono download page here.
NOTE: For Windows XP, make sure you have .NET Framework v.2.0 or above installed!
For Ubuntu users, follow this short guide here to get the program installed correctly:

3. For Windows XP/Vista/7, you will need to install Samsung Galaxy Tab drivers.
4. Put your Galaxy Tab into USB Debugging mode by going to Settings->Applications->Development and make sure it is set to ON.
5. Unzip the SuperOneClick Program you downloaded earlier and run the SuperOneClick.exe.
6. That should be it!
If you have trouble such as drivers not being installed on Windows, try going to Control Panel->Device Manager and see if your Galaxy Tab is being recognized as Samsung ADB device. If not, look for any exclamation marks, update the driver by manually browsing to the Samsung drivers directory.
