READ THIS POST BEFORE INSTALLING ANY CUSTOM RECOVERY

Updated to version 2.7.1.0.KK on 10-28-14. Now works with KitKat (and older JB) bootloaders.

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

Click HERE for the latest version.

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 T211.

Credits go to:
@ketut.kumajaya for working kernel
@Jamison904 for giving us root
@hkjr for getting ketut to help
and of course the Team Win group


Instructions for ODIN
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. 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.

Your internal SDcard will get mounted as "/data/media". So look there for any files saved to the internal card.

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:

Boot into your previously installed custom recovery.
Select the Install Zip option.
Find the recovery zip.
Flash.
Reboot recovery.
Enjoy your new recovery.


Flash at own risk!!!!

Hey @ketut.kumajaya, it seems the touchscreen needs to be rotated for this one. I would attempt to fix it, but we all know you can do it much, much better (and I don't want to start all over without your kernel source);)

EDIT: I used the new zImage from the 1.8 T210(R) version in my T210(R) TWRP and the touchpoints are off in it as well. Looks like the previous touch orientation fix you made got overwritten with the new update.

Looks like it only needs to be rotated clockwise 90 degrees (not flipped, just rotated).

Did you set the touchscreen orientation to landscape?
Code:
write /sys/devices/virtual/sec/tsp/orientation 6

only worked with external sd attached....without it, the recovery cannot read internal sdcard...cmiiw...

Not true...your internal SDcard is mounted as "/data/media". Navigate to that folder and you will find everything on your internal card. You will have to hit the "Up one level" button to find it.

EDIT: I will add a note to the OP about this.

Yup my mistaken...the zip was there in media folder..





Now that there's root and recovery, has anyone flashed a successful ROM for the T211?

Off course, I flashed the only ROM for T211, infamous combined with black hawk kernel..

Didnt test all the function yet...but stable for daily use, still laggy sometimes, I wonder when we got official 4.2 or skip to 4.4? Anyhow, just test the rom yourself based on cuŕiosity..

might just have to do that well from seeing the requirements on kit kat i believe we will get an official update but when i dont know Samsung kinda slow when releasing updates so just hoping some devs do something soon

    Updated to version 2.7.0.0

    Updated

    Now with SELinux enabled kernel for flashing roms (such as CM) that require it.
    Still works fine with older roms too.

    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).
