If you want to root your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P3113 Wi-Fi that has just updated to the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update with baseband build version "P3113UECLK7", then this root method will definitely best suites to your liking. An XDA-Developer Recognized Contributor - mrRobinson has created this root stock image. This is a well-known man not just in U.S and Canada but throughout the world for his great job on Android devices safest rooting techniques from Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note /2 etc.
This is nothing more than a pre-rooted completely stock image that you would flash in Odin.
It is based off of this stock image: P3113UECLK7_P3113XACCLK7_HOME.tar.md5
Simply adds the SuperSU apk v0.99 and su binary.
From there you can chose to install busybox, flash a non-stock recovery, etc.
It DOES NOT wipe any data. So if you are coming from a completely different rom base then you will want to boot to recovery and factory reset.
This is good for getting back to known good state after you may have flashed something and now have weird behavior going on. Also good if you want to run stock but just have root for a few apps like adaway or tibu.
