Download the firmware from this site.
I recommend to use uc browser to download.
It will work on both t210 and t210r.

I know it probably isn't a big whoop, but that site says sm-t210, no sm-t210R.

Even so, I downloaded the rom/firmware (same thing right?) from the live-samsung updates site. I'm just trying to find a reliable way to back up my apps. Too bad Kies only does contacts and stuff. How did you handle your apps before upgrading? Did you use ODIN to do it?

Well either use Titanium Backup or a similar app, or just flash the firmware using odin. I did that and all my data is still present an the update did not wipe anything. And yeah I guess ROM and firmware are pretty much the same thing. At least everybody uses them as synonyms. Though I think there is a slight difference and I personally prefere the word ROM.
