FAQ

How to boot into Download mode
  1. Turn off the tablet
  2. Press and hold volume down and volume up
  3. Connect the tablet to a computer via USB cable

How to boot in recovery mode
  1. Turn off the tablet
  2. Press and hold volume up and power until bootloader logo appears

How to flash TWRP
  1. Unlock the tablet's bootloader
    • Backup all your data as unlocking will factory reset your tablet!
    • Enable developer options and enable OEM unlock option there
    • Boot into download mode (you have to do it like described above, with adb reboot download the unlock option won't be available!)
    • Long press volume up to unlock your device
    • Go through initial setup again after unlock. You must connect to WiFi but can skip everything else.
    • Confirm that bootloader is actually unlocked (OEM unlock option grayed out and telling you it's already unlocked in developer options)
  2. Boot into download mode
  3. Flash twrp.img.tar (or twrp.img if you use heimdall) from TWRP download page using Odin/Heimdall.

FAQ


How to flash twrp
  1. Unlock the tablet's bootloader
  2. Flash disabled vbmeta images (only required if you're not going to flash my LineageOS)
  3. Boot into download mode
  4. Flash recovery.img using Odin or Heimdall

Thanks for making this possible.
I assume you have to rename the twrp.img to recovery.tar using 7zip, and flash it with the AP option in Odin, right?

Flashing failed, i get this log in Odin:

You have to rename the twrp.img to recovery.img and add it to a .tar archive using e.g 7zip, I'll also add that to the FAQ

Has anyone gotten this working in an August or later revision of the stock firmware (v2 in place of v1 binary)? I get the blurred screen upon entry into TWRP. Don't know if it's flashing custom ROMs correctly, either. I rather doubt it.

So I got it installed by following the more detailed step by step process. I lost the ability to play Netflix and Prime but I was expecting that.

First question, while doing a backup I am not able to backup the partition data, is this normal?
Second, TWRP is not retaining the settings that I change, did I do something wrong while installing?

Did you use twrp to install lineage or just to flash magisk?
Twrp doesn't really get along with the super partition.
If you want to use netflix you have to but magisk liboemcrypto modul

Just installed magisk as part of the unlocking guide, have used los for a long time but just
didnt feel like messing with it now, is there a flashable file for magisk for the tab s6 lite?

    @Linux4, are you planning to add support for data encryption in future releases?

    I'd like to add that (though only for AOSP FBE, not Samsung's encryption on stock) and already experimented a bit with it but it's still not working correctly.
