Hello everyone,
my english is not too good so exuse me.
This guide is for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 P5200/P5210 only.
i take not responsibility for bricking your device so be carefull.
i have rooted my galaxy tab 3 10.1 P5200 without pre-rooted firmware and i want to show you how i did:
1-Download TWRP "Thanks to Angel_666":

3-Download the ROOT file "thanks to DutchDanny,koush & cyanogenmod team"
UPDATE New link:http://www59.zippyshare.com/v/96195148/file.html
4-Reboot into download mode(hold volume down+power,you will see a warning message,press volume up to continune)
5-Open Odin,Connect the Tab to the computer and click on PDA,then select the TWRP recovery,
-make sure to uncheck 'auto-reboot' before flashing,because the tab might reinstall the stock recovery(thank you Benzoman for remind me).
6-When done,copy the ROOT file to the tab and reboot into recovery (hold volume up+power).
7-select install zip from sdcard and choose the root file.
8-flash the root file

Great guide. First one using twrp for the 10.1
Works great. Only suggestion is to uncheck auto reboot in odin because some people have issues with the tab reinstalling stock recovery with auto reboot.

Yes it nice to have root. TWRP is a little laggy though. It take a few swipes to get it repond sometimes. CMW is another alt but it takes up a whole lot of room for a backup. Almsot 9 gigs! TWRP is closer to 2.5 gigs for a full back up.

You should download TWRP to your PC since you're going to flash it with Odin and the other to the tab because you're going to use it in the new custom recovery ie..TWRP

Default quick question about step 7

In step 7, we are instructed to "install zip from sdcard and choose the root file." I downloaded all the required files onto my computer. To complete step 7 as instructed, do I have to copy the file to the sd card that is in my Tablet so the zip file installs from there or is this a step that is completed through the Odin program and installed off the Root file on my computer? I hope this question makes sense...

Thank you!

Hi depkat,

extSDcard is what I used..

The whole process of rooting was very simple

Sorry EDIT..for clarity

When you complete 'Step 6' you will see where it's needed
(Very clear option top left hand corner on Tab 3's screen - at beginning of step 7)
