To achieve this when in Odin untick "AutoReboot" and flash TWRP.
When the the flash is finished power off your tablet : long press on Pwr button till it goes off.
Then reboot in recovery mode: volume up, home and power you should be in TWRP recovery.

Hello,
I am now have problems with s-pen. Is this connected to the root process? I can write with my hand but not with the s-pen. Do you have any idea what is happening?

Thanks

Frankly speaking I don't know but I don't see the connexion with the root.
Did you upgrade from 4.3 to 4.4.2 ? If yes this could also be the reason ??

Actually, I found that it does have to do with the root process. Twrp for some reason is not supporting s-pen input. It took me a while to find a solution and understand how to apply it. I first found it at a german forum with no instruction whatsoever. Anyway, here is what one should do:
- "Call" *#2663#
- Select WACOM FW Update (Kernel Binary)
- Wait for the update to finish and you are all set
- Be aware that even though you are not actually calling a phone number you must have a sim card inserted.
