Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
Uncheck Auto reboot.
Load the respective file above into the AP slot and hit start.
After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding POWER + HOME.
You should now see TWRP recovery.

Well the P version of the Tab A has SPen while the T version doesn't. I'm guessing since the hardware is similar, try the T350 at your risk.

It is quite likely the same story as the tab s. T800 kernel boots on all t80x models.
As they all use the same ramdisk it should boot.

It doesn't matter which firmware you're running. If your model matches it will work.

And one last question, after flashing the CF Auto Root we flash back the stock recovery?

Howto
I didn't find any clear instructions on how to do this except for this french site. I tested with my SM-T550 and it worked like a charm.

Download all files as described in OP, and Odin

1. Turn off your tablet

2. Simultaneously press the keys: Volume Down + Home + Power . Then press volume up to select download mode.
3. On your computer, open Odin in administrator mode. Odin3-v3.10.6.exe in the zip file.

ODIN


4. Connect your tablet to your computer using the USB cable. In ODIN , the box under ID: COM will be in blue when it has detected your tablet.

5. Click AP then select the file sm-t550_cf -autoroot.tar you downloaded.

6. Check the boxes that only "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" are checked (look in the "Options" tab). Make sure the box Re-Partition is not checked.

odin_options


7. Start the root procedure by clicking the Start button and wait a few moments. The tablet will reboot, red android appear and some status message from the auto-root script and then restart in 10 seconds.

8. At the end of the installation, you can disconnect your tablet from your computer.

9. That's it, you are rooted
