The technical term for your condition is "screwed".
Unless ypu get the hardware button fixed you're stuck

IDK, if there is something like USB JIG for 30 pin USB connector.

Otherwise no chance of rooting via Odin method until you got your volume down button repaired.

I didnt think adb would work. Isnt that a sudo command to boot download mode?

Edit*** yeah, won't work to root because its a superuser command

Sudo commands will not work unless the device is already rooted, as i mentioned above.

sudo is only needed for root permissions on the remote computer when udev doesn't give full permission to the usb device that is connected to it. I'm not referring to calling su on the tablet itself.
