That's because the above only boots TWRP to root but does not install it. To install TWRP, when in booted with TWRP, you need to transfer the TWRP img to the tablet storage and then install it while in TWRP.

it is important to show the pathway to the file TWRP-3.0.2_TB-X103F-beta.img in the command line, like:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\My Videos\TWRP-3.0.2_TB-X103F-beta.img

Sorry for this newbie question.

Which part of the above rooting steps is rooting my tablet, what is TWRP doing and why do I need to install the SuperSU app?

During my first try I didn't boot the TWRP image rather I flashed it. But that didn't help at all.
After booting the TWRP image I was able to flash the SuperSU app.
The stock recovery is still in use.

Thanks in advance.

Entering Fastboot on Lenovo TB-X103F tablet

Hi everyone. I just want to clarify something about this procedure There's a lot of people being confused on how to get into FASTBOOT on some things, and that's stopping them getting anywhere from the beginning.

The Lenovo TB-X103F tablet doesn't have a way of booting directly into FASTBOOT. Turning the tablet On while holding either volume key and the On button doesn't do it directly. . . . . Firstly, there's 3 buttons on the tablet, I call them VOL- VOL+ PWR (again, that's just to clarify things 100%)

here's what must be done (well it's this way on the 3 I have on my desk, so I assume all TB-X103F tablets are the same) . . . . .

1) Turn the tablet off completely.
2) Press & hold the VOL+ button (the middle of the 3 buttons).
3) Press & hold the PWR button, release the PWR button as soon as anything appears on screen - Keep holding VOL+ button.
4) After about 8 seconds the familiar green android lay down will appear. Then, your recovery menu will appear.
5) Release the VOL+ button anytime now.
6) Press either VOL button to select BOOTLOADER on the menu (Bootloader is the same as FASTBOOT on this menu, that's where the confusion lies for many users).
7) Got Bootloader selected? now press PWR and let the tablet reboot itself.
8) it will show the LENOVO logo, and appear to be stuck - it isn't It's in Fastboot mode.
9) Plug in your USB to PC cable, and it'll install appropriate drivers on the PC (hopefully eh?).
10) Once the drivers are installed, test it by getting a Command Prompt in your ADB/FASTBOOT folder on your PC . . . .
11) type the command FASTBOOT DEVICES It should show you that your device is connected, if it shows no devices then either it didn't install the drivers, or something
else is wrong (there's about 30 things that can have gone wrong here, too many to go through in this quick guide).
12) The tablet will stay in FASTBOOT/BOOTLOADER mode until you turn it off (or the battery goes flat lol). So stay calm, there's no rush
I've mentioned about there being no rush, because if you choose ADB connecting from the recovery menu, it disconnects automatically after about 5 minutes -
This is Important to know because it can disconnect while you're pushing/pulling files from the tablet, and cause really nasty problems. Bad design eh?
But we're in Fastboot mode, so nothing to worry about like that
