The benefits of this procedure

The tool we selected for your gadget’s rooting offers custom ROMs. Other additions include root-only apps and superuser permission. New features and admin permission are delivered, too. As are battery and customization tweaks.

If you’ll be interested in unrooting the tablet, you have the same app to turn to for help. This software is compatible with many brands. It’s powered by an SRS Server, too, and it doesn’t cost a thing. Added to all of this is the fact that no security bugs will affect your tablet if you root it with this app. And you won’t experience bloatware afterwards.

Having root access also means that certain elements will go through damage if you update the device. This has to do with the system partition and root access. These two will be deleted and revoked. About your tablet’s warranty: in case of a rooting, it will quickly be revoked.

When an upgrade happens to your tablet, you’ll keep the internal and external SD cards. The gadget is going to feature the important content, as well.


You can commence the rooting. It will happen when you are done with the following pre-requisites:

  • help perform some backups in order to keep your tablet’s content safe;
  • a full NANDroid backup is going to be needed, so create one;
  • your notebook must have suitable USB drivers flashed on it from this website;
  • your Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 T520 needs to feature a charged battery;
  • the laptop has to boast Windows;
  • launch, on your tablet, the security programs installed there;
  • open the same security programs, this time the ones on the laptop, and turn them off.
