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 all how i did:
1-Download TWRP Recovery (make sure to use the version that matches your tab model):
Link for the P5200 model: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23991606952613332
Link for the P5210 model: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23991606952613346
2-Download Odin 3.07:

3-Download the ROOT file (SuperSU):
UPDATE New link and version:
https://download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU
Incase if the SuperSU root method doesn't work,try this one instead (Superuser):
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 telling me that).
6-When done,copy the ROOT file direcly to the internal storage of the tab (or even external sdcard) and reboot into recovery (hold volume up+power).
7-select install zip from sdcard,locate the root file where you have copied it (Internal storage or sdcard) and select it.
8-flash the root file.
9-reboot the tab,you will see a new app called SuperSU or Superuser,and surprise your tab is rooted

Credits goes to the developers who made the rooting method possibe on this device,i didn't make them so im only here to share information.

Have a nice day!!

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

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)

Cool Last question!
Once the root is complete, which I successfully done, how to we move apps to the sd card? on my phone i used FolderMount. I tried that on the Tab and the errors were great! I could not see storage availability and it just did not work right on the Tab3. Any ideas?
