but did you ever try to shutdown (or battery died) and start without keys? that's where i expect root to STAY..I have managed to root my SM-T860 UK tab using the S5e method, it does keep root but you need to help power and volume up until the Samsung screen that states the device isn't running on official firmware (not the 'the bootloader is unlocked screen).
Encryption I can't tell you, I'm happy to have a look if someone tells me how do I check.
So Reading this thread looks like people have used 2 different versions. My Tab s6 is Sm-867v which method would be best to try to root it as well as will it even work?
thank you for any and all help received.
How to root Tab S6? Just simply, this device has had officially got supported in TWRP, just download the latest recovery there, then flash using Fastboot and ADB commands, by having flashed TWRP you should mostly rm -rf your stock ROM then pick an arbitrary GSI, finally get your device rooted inside your GSI-based ROM.
And good news here, i’m going to order one

encryption is in Security\Encruption&Credentials or something like that, but it can lie, best is to launch TWRP and see it either it sees encoded filenames or asks for a password if encryption is ON, or lets you see the files if it's OFF.
thanks for confirmation! that's sad to hear as i want to share the tablet with family, and they will not press the button combination.. so i have to stay without root somehow, or with VMOS/VirtualXposed/Taichi but they don't work well.I haven't installed TWRP and root permissions are not loaded if I don't hold both power and volume up until the red warning screen.
I think I read somewhere there's a way to make it boot with Magisk loaded automatically, I'll have a look around and if I find it I'll post the fix here.thanks for confirmation! that's sad to hear as i want to share the tablet with family, and they will not press the button combination.. so i have to stay without root somehow, or with VMOS/VirtualXposed/Taichi but they don't work well.
this guide works perfectly with sm-t860 (only root not custom recovery). in case you need....
With root you also get good performance with a Linux-Deployed linux distro : https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...ripled-the-speed-of-this-12yo-laptop.4254035/ (if you are into linux ...)root has small advantages for me. Except adaway i not see what to use it more
How can this work on our tab s6, when they all use qualcomm processors, not exynos??
I "wished" for a brand new thread, with a fool proof step by step instructions....please ! (As this thread is getting "scattered of info")
