This is a little flashable zip I put together to be used via cwm / twrp. This is not an official superSU zip, It's put together by me. Note that this will work just fine on all 3 tab 3 10.1 models but as for other devices, it will ONLY work on devices with an x86 processor. Download link and instructions are below.

Instructions (assuming you're completely stock)
1. Download the zip either directly on the device or on your computer. Place in the root of your sdcard.
2. Flash TWRP (via odin). twrp thread found here.
3. When flashing is complete, reboot into recovery.
4. Install the zip in TWRP. Wiping cache/dalvik is recommended, but not necessarily required.
5. reboot, wait for the "android is upgrading" message to be finished.
6. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
7. Reboot tab.
8. Let sit for about 10 minutes upon boot.
9. Open SuperSU and go to settings. Disable and then re-enable superuser.
10. Everything should now be working smoothly you can test root by downloading terminal emulator and typing "su" in the command line.

*note that this will also install busybox*

Thanks for your work, TWRP only or can we flash it with CWM?

Should theoretically work with cwm, I highly reccomend twrp though, it's much more stable and reads your external SD card

Waiting first 5 minutes and before reboot it ask me to update binary. I do it before reboot second time ?

Edit: I haven't remove super utilisateur before...

If it works go for it. It might not let you update the binary without finishing the steps though

I reboot and wait 10 min but I must remove my old super utilisateur before.
My idea:
- remove super utilisateur
- Reboot and flash custom SuperSu
- wait 5 min before reboot
- wait 10 min....

No ?

That should do it. After that go into SuperSu and update the binary. If it won't update then to to SuperSu settings and disable then reenable superuser. Should update fine after that

Working fine with TWRP and CWM
Now the shell don't ask permissions every time, it's good.

Another question: what is the Nonsensical application in the drawer?

Just a little easter egg I include in all my work, it's supposed to be a little multi level brick breaker game but it seems to be crashing. You can fix the crash by reinstalling it from the apk if you're interested

I went over to the TARP homepage and I am very confused. I did not find a version for the GT - p5220 Tab 3 4.2.2. Can I use another version? I only want to root so I can remove those pesky bloat apps. I am not interested in custom ROMS or whatever. Any help would be appreciated.
