    Hi.. I’m new to rooting. i have a brand new Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-T210 and I would like to be able to connect a camera to it through a USB connection kit. Will rooting it enable me to do this?

    I can connect a camera to my Note N7000 (not rooted), but was disappointed when I found I could not do the same with the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-T210.

    any help would be appreciated.. cheers in advance! Nick

    I have discovered yet another way that does NOT work. Nothing happened whatsoever. I’ve tried some 100 ways to root an Android device with a 0% success rate. I now believe there is no such thing.
