Hello there,

My gf just got a Galaxy Tab 3.0 7 inch SM-T210 with Android 4.1.2.

Now i want to put a custom firmware on it like CM or anything like that.

But where to start?

Im not into Samsung and have no idea. Dont see any guide gifing with tips or so...

Can someone guide me in the right direction?

I did read about CWM and TWRP, download ODIN and flash it. But is that all?

With HTC i had to unlock bootloader first, flash boot.img etc etc.

Thanks!

Greetings!

@first there is no cm for this tab. All custom roms based on stock rom or 4.2.2 port from sm-t110

There is no need to unlock bootloader like HTC. No seperate flash of Boot.img...

Install cwm or twrp recovery with Odin. Check threads for Odin install instructions. Its easy going

Cwm:

Twrp:

If you only want to root flashable ZIP for root is attached in recovery threads.

If you want to try custom roms check index thread for sm-t210 Roms.

Thanks, i found out how it works. Real easy.

Only problem i have now is that ALL the ROMs seem to be alot of crap.

Not working, resolution problems or FCs. And yes i use the T210 versions and no other.

Also recoverys are baaad. Lol now i know why i will never get a Samsung ... crap casing, crap software.

If u would like i could upload a list of build.prop tweaks to use to improve over all performannce like image battery life wifi speed stuff like that just over all makes the tab run smoother

Try looking at the specs of each ROM and compare it with yours. I am currently running S.E.A.L ROM

with the Black hawk kernel I am finding it faster than the Stock ROM and also way less bloatware.

Try this or the RocketTab Rom and Blackhawk. These tend to work the best for most SM-T210 and R.
