You flash this at your own risk. Please ensure you have the stock ROM to hand downloaded from SAMMOBILE in case of problems. This will trip the knox counter.

Instructions:

Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
Uncheck Auto reboot.
Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.
After flashing immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding the other buttons.

You should now see TWRP recovery.


Qualcomm models SM-T377P/SM-T377R4 / SM-T560NU:
twrp_2.8.7.0_sm-t377p/sm-377r4
twrp_2.8.7.0_sm-t560nu
twrp_3.0.2-1_sm-t560nu

Spreadtrum models SM-T560 / SM-T561(Y/M):
twrp_2.8.7.0_sm-t560
twrp_2.8.7.0_sm-t561
twrp_3.0.2-1_sm-t560

To Root:
Flash the latest Supersu version below with TWRP:
DO NOT LET TWRP ROOT YOUR DEVICE IF IT ASKS. USE ONLY THE FILE BELOW:


https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...v2-05-t2868133

NOTE: ON SOME ANDROID 5.1.1 DEVICES IT IS NECESSARY TO GO TO:
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
AND ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.


STOCK TWRP IMAGE FOR SM-T377P
This is a link to the stock system, boot, modem image for the T377P in case anyone needs it. Needs to be restored with twrp.
Thanks to @shawn1976 for providing this.

NOTE ON ROOTING WITH TWRP:

If you have kingroot installed remove this before rooting with SuperSU above or you will have issues.
Kingroot attempts to block Supersu so must be removed first by using the uninstaller in the Kingroot superuser app.

Absolutely NO feedback
Out of literally hundreds of people that have downloaded and benefitted from the files I've posted NOT ONE person has left ANY feedback whatsoever and only 5 have hit the thanks button and 2 very generous people have offered donations to whom I am very thankful.
As developers we need encouragement and ALL we ask is a quick click on the thanks button and a little feedback.
It's not too much to ask is it for hours of work on a device we don't even own?

XDA is a 2 way community, it's GIVE and TAKE not just TAKE.

Due to this I have decided I am not going to update the builds to the new TWRP v3.0.0-0.

Thank you.

Come on people. It is not asking to much to thank someone for giving us what we need to make our tablets much better. Over in the T-Mobile S6 thread we have the same issues. These devs do this for us in their spare time for free, so showing a little appreciation is not asking a lot.

Hi, sorry for the late reaction. I succesfully installed your custom recovery but than i had trouble with SD card, it wouldn't get locked in the slot so i couldn't try the backup and restore funtions.
Now SD problem is fixed but when i boot into recovery i get stock, TWRP is gone so first chance i get i'll try to flash it again (don't have a PC available right now).
It would be a shame if you would stop working on our device, you gave us a very important tool for witch i would like to thank you.

You don't need a pc. Extract the recovery.img from the .tar file and then flash with flashify.

I've not rooted yet and i'd like to have a backup before i do, so i guess i'll just wait a bit and flash with Odin.

I want to thank @ashyx for getting Root &TWRP for the Tab E. I bought my SM-T560NU one week ago today. The first thing I did when I got home was to search for Root & Recovery and I found this thread. Everything flashed fine for me. Without devs like @ashyx on XDA we would be stuck with ordinary Tablets & Phones. So make sure to hit the thanks button and post feedback to let them know if things are working or not. It's not that hard to do.

+1, I haven't tried it yet on my wife's SM-T560NU 'coz my wife always have the tablet with her. She wouldn't even let me get close to it since I screwed up her phone. I will report ASAP when I get a chance to steal the tablet and root it (hopefully successful).
Thanks to @ashyx in advance and to guys reporting back on their experience. Please keep the thread alive.
