I will be getting a new 7 inch galaxy tab 3 tomorrow.
On all my previous android devices I have root and rom'd and I will probably do the same here...

Any suggestions on must haves and must nots? Would be very appreciated!

The only Samsung I have ever rooted was an old galaxy several years ago...is Odin still the way to go? I think that's what it was called...

Is there kit kat available for this tab?

To root you must also use Odin for flashing Recovery and root.
Depent of what kind of Tab you have , so you become KK.
Tab3 SM-T217 S has KK now from Samsung
all other has V 4.1.2 or the Tab 3lite has V4.2.2

The SM-T210 & R currently have no stock KK. But there are some KK roms being developed currently.

I would not hope to get KK yet for you since it has a few bugs and since Tab 3 7.0 is

neglected over the 8.0 and 10.0. Your best bet for now is to root your Tab and

flash a custom ROM on it so it will get rid of the bloatware and speed it up.

Thanks for the replies

I finally got it and its the sm-t110 I think?
Anyways i updated all the software updates out of the box then followed some guide ( don't have the link sorry ) and using odin flashed twrp.
Then I flashed a lite ROM from a thread here on xda.

Everything is running great, no issues what so ever as of now.

I do have a question about restoring to stock.
If I ever want to, if I use Odin to flash the stock firmware will it give me the stock recovery back?

Thanks in advance
