Hey guys I found a new app called towel root that might just root the tab 3. I haven't tested it but I have a feeling that it will work. We need testers to see if it is a go for us.

We should try it on all tab models on these android versions:

1. 4.1.2 Jellybean
2. 4.2.2 Jellybean
3. 4.4.2 kitkat

Now this is actually a really nice root app and our friend tomsgt was able to do a video on it. But he did his review on the samsung S5 phone.

Link to tomsgt video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3JOeQSvxD4

So we need people to test the app and if it is a go we will keep this thread open, and if not we will close this thread.

Instructions to install:

This is just an apk so we just install it as a regular app. Once installed you can open the app and try to root your tablet.

Download from website:

http://towelroot.com/

Just click the picture on the website page to download the apk!

Hope you guys enjoy what I found

Didn't work on Tab 3 8.0 - 4.2.2

Didn't work on a few other devices either, all with pretty old kernels.

Doesn't work, tried V1 and V2 of towelroot on my Tab3 8.0 (310). Towel Root worked on my S5, was hoping it would work on this, on a Mac on 10.5 and can't root the Tab3 on that.

Does it work on Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 SM-T310 Wifi Version?
With 4.2.2 or 4.4.2?

I posted above it doesn't work, tried version 1 and 2 on my T310. Sucks, I have a Mac and can't get it to root, and Win7 won't root in a virtual system and can't boot camp as don't know where my Win7 cd is.
