Hello and Sorry for my bad english.

To enable multi-user at the tab 3 10.1, first you musst root your stock rom.
Then instal BusyBox from the playstore open it and instal.
Now you take a build.prop editor (maybe from playstore) and open, now add a new property.
Name it: fw.max_users
At the key you fill how many users you want (2 at my tab)

Save and Reboot!

Now in the options, you shold can add new users.

Did you try this?
I had to modify my framework-res.apk to enable MultiUser.

I tried it today, but it didn't work for me. I ended up in a bootloop. Had to copy back the original build.prop to boot my Tab3 again.
Think the solution with build.prop doesn't work on all devices. I'm using a Galaxy Tab3 10.1 (GT-P5200) / P5200XXUAMK7 [4.2.2].
What is your device/firmware?

It's a bit confusing why some have to edit the build.prop and others have to modify framework-res.apk.

Does this really work? Just wondering, because I thought we had to use the xposed framework hack. Man it would be great if it's just a build.prop addition. You may want to tell the dev's of the pimpdroid, and grievous roms if this is all it takes to get multi user on 5210.
