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*

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...

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 :p

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.

will the root work in 4.4.2

I just upgraded to 4.4.2 on my p5210 model

will the root work in 4.4.2? :/

Same question here. Just updated to 4.4.2 >>> after sucessfull install on TWRP, once SuperSu starts.. it hangs up on App tab.. No response from settings when enable/disable...

PS: all wipes done, just in case.

Any thoughts?

Root works fine for me on 4.4.2 (customrom pimpdroid, Philz recovery)

Have you tried to update supersu? Here's the link:

download.chainfire.eu/452/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.02.zip

I'm on restless pimpdroid custom Rom and he said if there are problems with root, we should flash this file..

Thanks @Restless for the root. BigDoun, I also had to flash SuperSU 2.02 using twrp to get root to work. I was on stock 4.4.2.

Sent from my GT-P5210 using XDA Free mobile app

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