Hi all ... I am working with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (SM-T210R) and was interested in speeding the device up.

I flashed TWRP 2.6.3 and rooted and then tried to flash the SEAL ROM after watching the video.

During the install. I got a bunch of errors ... I don't have a screenshot, but it said the following:

ASSERT FAILED package_extract_file ("boot.img") ...
E: Error Executing updater binary in zip '/external_sd/ROM/SEAL V2 Official.zip' ....
Error Flashing Zip 'external_sd/ROMS/SEAL V2 ...

Luckily, the backup is working fine and I was able to restore.

I finally was able to flash a debloat script that I saw on XDA to speed it up a bit, but I really wanted to try this rom.

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks very much.

Try removing any spaces in the zip name.

Thanks for the suggestion .. I just tried that and got the same errors.

Strange.

FWIW .. I also had issues trying to install the RocketTab ROM as well. Different problem, but still never worked. As I said, I was able to flash a debloat script that seems to have helped with the performance somewhat but still not great.

Thanks again.

I followed these directions (minus the rooting, as the ROM is already Rooted) yesterday and installed RocketTab 3.1 without a hitch:

I've tried RocketTab multiple times ... and after flashing I get a message that the device appears to not be rooted, and offers to install SuperSU ... whether I say install or not, after I reboot ... the tablet freezes on the Samsung opening screen. I have no idea what else to try.

Thanks.

Did you check the MD5 of the zip, it could be a bad download.

I did .. it matched. I think I'll try downloading again just in case though. Not sure what else to try at this point.

Thanks.

So I re-downloaded the SEAL ROM files and this time it installed without any errors, but I still got the not rooted message when I tried to reboot the device in TWRP. Again, whether or not I choose to install SuperSU, it hangs on the Samsung Galaxy Tab screen and I need to boot back into recovery and restore from backup to get working again.

For some reason, the root in the ROMs is not taking or something? Is that what is causing the problem? Does that make any sense?

Any other ideas? Thanks again!

Sound like the system is not flashing correctly. Maybe try a different recovery.

Try the normal CWM coz touch-based are allergic to my device too....no worries you can still still scroll down the menu list of options using your finger tips
