Default Tab 3 7" T210R is slow and won't root!!! HELP?

Gentlemen,

This tab is slow....keyboard is very laggy. So I figured I'd root it and load a ROM to it.... I flashed the file listed in the thread,
however, power, home and up won't go.... upon ocsassion, it wil bring me into factory mode..... wierd. My s3 and 4 rooted just fine,
so I'm no stranger to that......

Suggestion? Is there something I'm missing?

Other suggested in antother thread to reload factory firmware from sammobile...... I don't believe it would solve anything......

Thanks guys

You should try to flash the original firmware and see if it would fix it. Before doing it backup your data in case it doesn't fix

When flashing recovery, do not check auto reboot on odin and when it says pass after a successful flash, do the three combos then flash universal root.zip thing then qualla, your device has been rooted

I used this link - Worked just like the video showed except I found that after flashing the TWRP recovery tool, I had to hold volume up & home for an extended period before the tool would boot. Watch the screen. After the Samsung logo dissapears, there is a slight glow on the screen. When that glow disappears, release the keys and you should see a lock screen. Swipe and you're in. Good luck.
Heres the link:
