HOW TO ROOT SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 3 GT-P5200 RUNNING ANDROID 4.4.2 KITKAT

  1. Download the updated CF-Auto-Root package for the P5200 device from this link [3].
  2. Download the Odin flash tool to flash files on the Tab 3 from this link [4].
  3. Extract both the files to the desktop of your computer by shifting them to the desktop from the default download location and then right-clicking on the file> extract there.
  4. Double-click the Odin executable file that is on the desktop and let it run on the computer.
  5. Press the Power button and choose to Power off the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 from the Device Options menu.
  6. Reboot the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 device in download mode and then connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
  7. Click the PDA/AP button you can see from the Odin user-interface on the computer and upload your CF-Auto-Root-santos103g-santos103gxx-gtp5200.tar.md5 file.
  8. Do not make any changes from the user-interface of the Odin flashing tool.
  9. Click the Start button and Odin will now flash SuperSU on your device thanks to the updated CF-Auto-Root tool.
  10. Wait until the display of the Galaxy Tab 3 says it is about to reboot and then watch it reboot in recovery mode — this should happen automatically for you.

Any Galaxy Tab 3 that does not boot in recovery mode must be manually put in recovery mode by turning it off and then booting by holding the Volume Up + Home + Power buttons together.

Anyone who is experiencing a device that does not boot should report that to the developer by posting over at the official CF-Auto-Root XDA Developers thread [5] so that Chainfire can fix the problem.
