after 1h booting still stops at the lenovo logo ... that actually happend before when in the first attempt I used flashtool boot recovery. But at that time I could go back to the original recovery and that let me do a factory reset.
I had SR3-SuperSU-v2.79-SR3-20170114223742.zip installed.
To unbrick my phone I used Lenovo_TB3-X70F_S000026_WC0E305514.zip via your recovery.
But no change.
Is it possible to flash the Lenovo_TB3-X70F_S000026_WC0E305514.zip with an other flash tool?
I hope my german english doesn't confuse you...

The Lenovo_TB3-X70F_S000026_WC0E305514 firmware you used is for the Tab3 10 Business (TB3-X70F), but you have the Tab3 10 Plus! While it appears that these tablets are pretty much the same, except for the fact that the "Plus" model has only 16 GB internal storage, they use different firmwares.
If you made a backup of your tablet's original firmware when you first ran TWRP via "fastboot boot", then you should restore that. If you didn't make a backup, then you're out of luck, because I don't know a source for the Tab3 10 Plus firmware.

Had to sign up just to say thanks mate.
S000026 and latest SuperSU has worked brilliantly on my X70F and I'm having fun overclocking this to perform better with certain games! Much appreciated.

Thank you again for answering my questions!
I did a backup while on flashboot boot before flashing the recovery.
The backup contains system but no boot ,where as the backups I made after flashboot flash contain both. Could one separately flash the right boot image?
When I restore the backup via twrp this shows:
Data successfully dercryted...
In red letters:
Unable to Mount storage
Failed to Mount '/data'. (invalid argument)
Then in normal colour:
Full SELinux support..
Then in red again:
Unable to Mount /data/mdedi/TWRP/.twrps
Then in normal:
After that it writes back data for some time and
finishes with done...
When I earlier did flashboot boot recovery ,before I flashed the recovery later, the tablet would stop at the logo ,when booted the device again.
I did factory reset ,at that time possible, and could start again from scratch.
Does that give hope, my device would start ,when I flash my backup on any other way?

Yes, you can flash the boot image separately.
Strange that the log says "data sucessfully decrypted" but then fails to mount /data.
You could try to format the data partition, using TWRP's "Wipe" menu. That will delete all user data from the internal storage, but it might fix the problem.

Nothing worked to bring my tab back.I contacted the chat support with a bad feeling. They generously take it for repair without nasty remarks!
You have been very helpful, but then there are such people one can not help.
Hopeful there will come a recovery for my tab. The code tb3 x70f for my lenovo tab 3 plus had misled me.
Anyway I have to thank you for the recovery you build for the lenovo tb3 710f ,which runs superb.

I don't understand, when you say "I have to thank you for the recovery you build for the lenovo tb3 710f ,which runs superb.", you intall the tb3 710f TWRP on TB3-X70F ?
How do you do to overclock the TB3-X70F ?
To unbring your tab back, have you tested "Smart Phone Flash Tool" with OTA 025 ROM in Tzul androidfilehost ?

I have 2 Devices. The Lenovo tab 7 essential is the one that workes and I rooted with Tzuls recovery for this device.
The lenovo tab3 10 plus I have send in.Its not back jet. And I probably will not try anything for a while. I could not unbrick it . I can't remember testing it with what you mentioned.

Well, i have some problems with the TWRP on my tab3 10 plus (Edit: I don't understand the serial number is
TAB3 10 Business
) . I've tried to unlocked it with
fastboot oem unlock
on the tablet screen
Unlock bootloader? If you ... (some warnings on the unlock) Press the Volume UP/Down buttons to select Yes or No. Yes (Volume UP):Unlock(may void warranty). No (Volume Down):Do not unlock bootloader.
So i press the Volume UP button
Unlock pass ... return to in 3s
on my PC screen (linux terminal adb/fastboot commands) :
fastboot oem unlock ... (bootloader) Start unlock flow OKAY [ 4.981s] finished. total time: 4.981s
then another tablet screen :
Select Boot Mode: [VOLUME_UP to select. VOLUME_DOWN is OK.] [Recovery mode] [Fastboot Mode] <<== [Normal Boot] => FASTBOOT mode ...
I press the volume up button but nothing happen, nor if I press volume down button.
Then I flash the recovery :
fastboot flash recovery recovery_twrp303_TB3-X70F.img
and try to reboot system with
fastboot continue resuming boot... FAILED (remote: not support on security) finished. total time: 0.002s
fastboot reboot rebooting... finished. total time: 3.009s
but nothing happen nor with :
to reboot it I have a long press on power button. The tablet reboot on recovery but something is wrong : The Lenovo logo appears twice, but TWRP doesn't have a complete boot :
Data successfully decrypted, new block device:'/dev/block/dm-0' Updating partition details... ...done Successfully decrypted with default password. Updating partition details... ...done (in red) Unable to mount storage Failed to mount '/data' (Invalid argument) (in white again) Full SELinux support is present. (in red) Unable to mount /data/mediaTWRP/.twrps (in white) Running Recovery Commands Formattinh=g Nvdata using make_ext4fs... Formatting android Cache [cache] using make_ext4fs... (in red) Failed to mount '/data' (Invalid argument) (in white) Done processing script file renamed stock recovery file in /system to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. (in red) Failed to mount '/data' (Invalid argument) Failed to mount '/data' (Invalid argument)
and it reboot in loop. I certainly do a mistake, but which one?
