While it is uploading here is the info. We have been working on making a custom recovery. No luck. Close but not there yet. So I decided to make a pre-rooted firmware you can flash through Odin. Works perfectly. The firmware I used was for the UK version. Funny enough stock the kernel is unsecure. Anyways it is the whole firmware so it is about 1.1-1.2 gigs. Uploading to me Dev-host.


Code:
#include 
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

By using the rom you agree with the above terms!


Instructions:
  • Download firmware
  • Download Odin - Link here
  • Boot into download. (either hold power and volume down or do adb reboot download)
  • Click on PDA and then find prerooted.tar.md5
  • MAKE SURE RE-PARTITION IS NOT CHECKED!!! You will have an instant brick! You have been warned.
  • Click start and wait.
  • once done it will reboot into (stock) recovery and finish installing.
  • Once done and booted just open SuperSU and update the binary. Not by CWM but the other.
  • Done. Enjoy!

Hey!!!! Congrats man....


Just two questions

1. That 'instant brick' you talk about... You mean a HARD unrepairable brick x.x? (Want to be aware of everything that can go wrong haha)

2. This will obviously erase all my data right?

Not sure about the first question, but you should not lose your data. This flash does not erase or overwrite the data folder (at least I didn't lose mine).

If repartition is checked it will hard brick the device. Any Samsung device actually. This is an Odin issue and has nothing to do with the firmware. Just double check repartition is not checked and you have nothing to worry about.

Just warning people who haven't used Odin before and thought that was how to wipe like recovery. It is not! This deleted recovery, download mode and even the boot partition. Lights go out and never return.

yeah i knew that much odin is serious business very easy to brick if you do it wrong. one of many reasons i have been hoping to get a easy root and unlock up for the na firmware this solution is putting the uk firmware on the na device same hardware just a few bits flipped in the na version i keep trying to keep my self convinced to wait for safer methods and roms to get released but i miss root so much...

Well besides that and making sure you have enought battery life this is very safe. I flashed like 20 other failed attempts of custom recovery and this like 2-3 times getting it 100% correct.

I've done ist successfully on a SM-T210 sold in Germany...
Only thing i noticed is a slight problem with GPS.
It takes long to find sats and even after a minute or so only 3
sats were found. With the "stock" Rom around 10 sats were found
in less than a minute...

Other than that it works fine ! Congrats !
Cant wait to see custom roms coming...

Regards

Joachim

    No, something is missing. It was successful but won't boot into recovery. I am going to talk to some developer buddies and see what they say.

    For those of you experiencing the same issues I found with Downloads, esp. the lame Upload.net here are the links for all the software you need:

    Latest Samsung Drivers for Windows (I'm using Win7 x64 and they work fine):
    https://androidfirmwares.net/Tools/Download/9

    Latest ADB and Fastboot:
    http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html#download

    A solid link to Odin 3.7z
    https://androidfirmwares.net/Tools/Download/8

    Enjoy All!!!!

    Here is a great guide to using Odin if you are new to Samsung as I am:

    And of course

    Rooted firmware - http://d-h.st/leL

    Which works exceedingly well. Thanks to Jamison, great work!
