I currently just got the sprint samsung galaxy tab 3. When I activated it, it updated to 4.4 kitkat . I cant seem to find the root method for 4.4, can anyone help, I just flashed the old method and it obviously isnt working.

I am also having this issue. I just bought the tablet (SM-T217S) and updated to 4.4.2. I flashed TWRP with Odin and then flashed armeabi universal root through TWRP as per these instructions. I see SuperSU in my apps but it crashes on start. Apps that require root don't work also.

I need root so I am willing to downgrade Android for it but I would love to have root on the stock 4.4.2.

EDIT: Found the solution. Follow the instructions found here (same as above), then flash the SuperSU update attached here with TWRP.
