We’ve gone to XDA Developers for a lot of help over the years and today’s root procedure comes from popular XDA member David martin better known as gr8nole. This method will sort you out with CWM and rooting at the same time so there is no need to look for any other resources on this topic and that’s always the easiest way to go about it. Once you have finished you can download and install custom ROMs and applications that you didn’t have access to with the stock device.
This help guide will void any withstanding warranty you may have on the Galaxy tab 3 Lite.
There’s no doubt that the developers of this root method are supremely talented people, but that does not mean the process will be faultless for everybody trying to use it. It’s possible something goes wrong during the guide and after there is root access. On that note, it is important to understand that we are not held responsible for anything that happens to your device from following our guide. It is all done at your own risk.
This example is compatible for the Lite version of the Samsung galaxy Note 3 WiFi SM-T110 only and won’t work for any other. Don’t try to install it for anything else unless you want to cause damage.
Don’t worry about saving any battery life. The reason is as soon as you plug your device into the computer via USB cable it will automatically start charging the battery. Therefore, there is no need to have a certain amount of charge left.
