Hey Gr8nole,
In your vid on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDShwBHRjUE&feature=youtu.be, you say to download the android-armeabi-universal-root-signed.zip but its no where to be found. I'm not sure how to proceed with how to root my device.

I'm so sorry for the noob questions, its been awhile since i've rooted a device. Trying to get back in the swing of things.

Thanks so much in advance. Your vids are amazing and super easy to follow

The video is a little outdated. Immediately following the install instructions in the OP, the is a link to the SuperSu thread where you can find the zip to flash for root.
Also, once you get TWRP installed, it should ask if you want to nstall su binary when you exit TWRP.

There no compiling errors at all?

See my edited post above.

Yes, there are a couple selinux issues that I worked out, but that is not the issue. We have been using a very hacky mixture of binaries to even have these versions working. We use the stock recovery init binary instead of the one compiled in twrp and a few other things just to get this working.

TWRP 3.0.0-0

Ok guys, I did manage to get TWRP 3.0.0-0 working. Give it a test and let me know if you see any issues.
Your work is very appreciated master gr8nole and i thank you so much for it. I want to test but as i don't have a working computer i might as well wait until someone else gives feedback:( Keep up the good work though and do you still have your sm-t210/r tab 3 tablet or did you sell it?

    Updated to TWRP 3.0.0-0 on Feb 13, 2016.

    NOTE: The MTP feature of TWRP causes issues with ADB access while in recovery. You may need to toggle "Disable MTP" a from the "mounts" menu to get ADB access.

    TWRP does occasionally give a "failed to mount /system" error. If you get this error, simply reboot recovery and it should work.

    Now properly supports all set_metadata functions in newer updater-scripts.

    Click HERE to download the latest version.

    @ketut.kumajaya has provided us with a working zImage which I combined with his previous TWRP attempts to make this recovery.

    Please report any bugs here in this thread.

    Please take a moment to say thanks and/or donate to @ketut.kumajaya for helping us out.

    I have a T210R, so I haven't tested on a T210.

    Thank you to everyone who has (and still will) help in testing!!!!

    Credits go to:
    @ketut.kumajaya for getting this initially working (see THIS post)
    @Jamison904 for giving us root
    @hkjr for getting ketut to help
    and of course the Team Win group
    @Tomsgt for the video

    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 one with "tar" in the name)
    1. Download ODIN on 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. 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.

    Internal card gets mounted as "/data/media". You'll have to hit "up a level" on the folder list on the left to find it.

    Notes about ODIN
    --Make sure that "Re-Partition" is NOT checked.
    --Auto Reboot can be un-checked if TWRP 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).

    Instructions for recovery flashable version:
    1. Boot into your previously installed custom recovery.
    2. Select the Install Zip option.
    3. Find the recovery zip.
    4. Flash.
    5. Reboot recovery.
    6. Enjoy your new recovery.

    Flash at own risk!!!!
