Is this still right?
I read the all trhead ...
But a search into topic for SM-T2105 leaves me confusing... No clear answer...
First could you tell me wich one is the best, CMW or TWRP, plz? (the last I can find for T210 is CMW-18.104.22.168 and/or TWRP-22.214.171.124) (I only can get the *.img, not *.md5 for CMW-126.96.36.199?). I read there are some issues with TWRP (with GTAB3)?
More important, will I not loose the stock rom? Is there no wipe/factory reset? Or do you know where I can find the zip of a rooted stock rom, including that 'kids' stuff? (SM-T2105). I am very sorry, I don't understand.
I want to root, because of lack of space, and the rest.. but I don't want to loose that..
And the most important, "last but not least", I could not find the zip " android-armeabi-universal-root-signed.zip", that "must" be at the beginning of the topic, so can you help me please, putting a mirror or so? Or could it work only with flashing a SuperSU zip? Not so easy, right? EDIT: I have the answer, a SU update , even if I'd be happy if someone could put a mirror/link for the 'original' "universal-root-signed.zip"
As you maybe can read, I'm new in rooting etc, thanks for your reply!! Would appreciate..
Everything you need is in the OP. Follow the instructions exactly.
Also, don't ask so many different questions in one post, it makes answering very tedious. This thread is here only to provide the recovery, not to answer things like "which is best". There is a Q and A section for your other questions.
READ THIS POST BEFORE INSTALLING ANY CUSTOM RECOVERY
Updated to CWM v188.8.131.52.KK on 9-23-14 to cooperate with KitKat bootloader.

Watch THIS VIDEO tutorial for a step by step visual guide for performing the instructions listed below (thanks @Tomsgt for the video).
Supplied in 3 formats:
- Odin flashable tar.md5 (for first time installation)
- Recovery flashable zip (requires a custom recovery to currently be installed)
- .img file (for those who use Flashify or other direct methods).
Instructions for Odin: (use the ...tar.md5)
1. Download ODIN to your computer.
2. Power off the device.
3. Restart in "Download Mode" by holding the "HOME" button, "Volume Down" and "Power" all at the same time (for about 5 seconds).
4. Hit the "Volume Up" to enter download mode.
5. Start the ODIN exe program. Un-check Auto Reboot. See notes about ODIN below.
6. Connect the device via USB to your computer. Verify the device shows as "Added" in the Message box. If it doesn't show then you need the Samsung USB drivers (just install KIES to get them).
7. Select "PDA" then choose the recovery file you want to flash.
8. Hit "START". Wait for Odin to finish (~10-15 seconds). The message area will display "RES OK" when finished.
9. Wait for device to restart. Skip this step if you unchecked auto reboot.
10. Restart directly to recovery mode before rebooting into OS.(Hold POWER, Volume UP, and the HOME button all at the same time. When you see the Samsung Logo, let go of the POWER button, but keep holding the Volume UP and HOME until you see the recovery screen).
After you get the custom recovery working, you can flash the latest SuperSu zip to get root.
Notes about ODIN
--Make sure that "Re-Partition" is NOT checked.
--Auto Reboot can be un-checked if CWM doesn't flash correctly on your device. Some have reported that un-checking Auto Reboot fixes this issue. If you un-check Auto Reboot, you will need to reboot the device yourself (refer back to step 10).
Watch this video to learn about the navigation issues and Rainbow Mode: http://youtu.be/iCNdxlNzdBI
If the highlight doesn't move on the recovery menu, the selection actually does change. Go ahead and hit Power to select. If the menu goes blank, just hit Volume Up or Down to get it to reappear.
It appears that the menu navigation issue only happens when you use the button combination to boot into recovery. If you use the Quick Boot app or "adb reboot recovery", it seems to work properly.
Instructions for recovery flashable version:
- Boot into your previously installed custom recovery.
- Select the Install Zip option.
- Find the recovery zip.
- Reboot recovery.
- Enjoy your new recovery.
Flash at own risk!!!!

Do you still have TWRP or did you restore everything to stock? Here is the ROM I did for this device, if you look through my thread somewhere on like page 5 or 6 someone provided a good link for TWRP, if you need it.
Flip horizontal + swap x,y :good:
