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:

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:

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.

Verified after you run towel root install supersu from market update bianaries
Then recovery tools to flash recovery of choice

On a side note 4.4.2

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?
