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 please be carefull.
*NEW* video tutorial of this guide (made by @hamsturcio)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9TSr-5P20Y
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
*or you can use CWM recovery incase if TWRP recovery doesn't work:
Link for CWM recovery non-touch (works on both P5200 and P5210):

2-Download Odin 3.07:

3-Download the ROOT file (SuperSU)*:
https://download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU
*Incase if the SuperSU root method doesn't work,try this one instead (Superuser):

4-Reboot into download mode(hold volume down+power) you will see a warning message,press volume up to continune,and your tab is now on download mode.
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,reboot the tab,and copy the ROOT file directly 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.

you mean Philz recovery?these are just recovery's used to flash custum ROM's,mod's,wipe data,or advanced wipe,and other features i can't remember.
There's no Philz recovery in our device so far,only CWM and TWRP.

And what's the point of rooting this device there is no decent kitkat based custom roms for it like cm and you can't run dsploit on it because of the intel cpu you can't even run ubuntu touch lets just face it we got screwed big time on this device the wise thing is to just leave it stock and hope it would get kitkat update some day

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.
