Our Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 been in market for about 3 years now. Released with Android 4.4.2 KitKat for end-users and over the years it received some updates and now, the latest Android version the tablet officially running on is 5.1.1 Lollipop. While Android 7.1 is on the run, we don’t even have official Android 6.0 for our Tab Pro 12.2 until we root our tablets. This is where XDA Dev tompatry comes in action. He managed to compile and develop CM-13.0 (Android 6.0.1) for Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 [SM-T900] (v2awifi). It working pretty stable for some time now.

How to Root Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 SM-T900 Running Android 4.4.2
Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is an amazing big screen tablet from Samsung. Along with a large 2560×1600 resolution display it is stuffed with 3 GB RAM, 8-core processor, 32 GB internal storage along with a microSD slot. The tablet is fast and responsive but comes with a lot of bloat-ware. You can not remove them or uninstall them if your tablet is not rooted.

I felt the device is not using all the resources and not delivering enough performance as it is capable of. I even wrote a small post on How-to make Samsung Galaxy Tab PRO 12.2 Fast.
