Despite kind of clumsily clicking through, I managed to get her rooted/Verified with root checker from the Play store/Installed Titanuim Backup pro and froze a ton of useless apps - Runs fine and kind of nice to be able to freeze things. I did disconnect the wifi connection from my pc before I did the install of VRoot and I never had an issue FYI.

it failed. I tried several times. Can you guys help?

when connecting the tab it takes 10 minutes to establish the usb connection. after clicking the root button it takes another 10 minutes. meanwhile the chinese app shows a green field the a blue field and so on.

can you guys confirm that behaviour? thanks.

Mine said file not found too on the last step and then rebooted but it turned out that it was rooted after it rebooted.

root issue

So I accidently updated and ran 1.78 file as opposed disconnecting my Internet and run 1.7.7. It was successful but i am getting su not found when running from android emulator terminal. Am I screwed to fix this? I did factory default tablet not it doesn't update 1.7.7 anymore..I could not understand the Chinese wording but clicking on green button it doesn't update like I saw finished when I did it on 1.7.8 version. When I rebooted, i checked root checker of course it's not rooted. Can anybody assist me?

I ran this root, which went well...random question, will the root hold if I do the system updates? I know some do, some don't. Figured I should ask before updating at all. If it won't hold, do we have a source for the updates?

so i have vroot 1.7.7 but still get the bluescreeen with a x meaning its not successful what am i doing wrong?

I kept, having the same problem, it's because of the August update.

You need to revert to the previous update. You can go to sammobile dot com and get the previous firmware for your tablet. Get the latest firmware that does not have Kies. Instructions for how to install it onto your tablet are on sammobile. You'll use Odin 3.09, and once you've flashed the previous frimware, turn off any wifi connection on your tablet so that it doesn't re-update. Then root using the method in this forum and you should be good.

    Worked

    This method worked on my SM-T230NU. However, to make it easier for others here is what I did!

    1.) download Odin 3.09 and TWRP
    2.) put tablet on Download Mode (Power Button+Volume Down+Home Button)
    3.) flash the recovery.tar thru Odin 3.09 use PDA/AP button on Odin -------Do not let the table restart after download mode or it will wipe the TWRP. right away hold Power Button+Volume Up+Home Button even if the tablet is resting.
    4.) put tablet on Recovery Mode, this time it would be modified recovery TWRP (Power Button+Volume Up+Home Button)
    5.) reboot device, TWRP will detect that tablet is not rooted and ask if you want to intalls root. Slide to Install ------The in the secound screen touch system that's where you will see the screen which asks you to root.
    6.) find SuperSU installer, follow instruction to install. ----- after your tablet is on, go to you apps, find superSu and open it, then touch play to update it from Google play.
    7.) download RootChecker to verify root

    Any idea what happened to the ODIN download? Mega says that the file is no longer on their server, at least not through the links I have seen.

    TIA.

    Hello, I attached Odin 3.07 and 3.09 to this post for you. Download whichever you need, extract the folder inside the zip to your desktop, double click the .exe file to run Odin
