There isn’t much development going on for tablets, but XDA Developers member Dees_Troy wants to change that. He has lately released TWRP, a custom recovery, for Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013. This isn’t perfect though, as some users have reported problems with installation and usage.
However, others have been able to install it successfully. If you want to try it out, there are a few things to note. The instructions that you’ll see are only for Galaxy Note 10.1 model number GT-N8013, and may damage other models if applied on them. USB Debugging should be enabled on your device, and its battery should be charged at a proper level. Disable any security softwares on your computer that prevent the installation of files. Make sure the bootloader of the device is unlocked. Safe vault the important files. The most important thing to note that this guide is to be followed at your own risk, as we won’t pay any damages if there’s an unfortunate outcome.
There are two ways you can proceed with the installation; through GooManager or Odin.
