I'm trying to flash the lineage recovery using Odin, but no matter what I try, I get the , "only official released binaries are allowed (recovery)" message, I unlocked the bootloader (OEM unlock, it's not showing the option in the dev menu in settings) I'm completely stuck, Has anybody faced something like this before?

Answering my own question:

- I connected the tablet to the WiFi
- Enaled auto-date & time
- Checked for updates (but didn't updated)
- Reboot
- Disabled Auto Date & Time
- Changed the Date to August 1st, 2019
- After this, "OEM Unlock" was shown, but grayed out/unselectable
- Turned tablet off
- Went into download mode
- Flashed Lineage recovery using Odin (created a Tar file with the recovery.img in it)

And profit.

I gotta say, [email protected] you Samsung, why?, why make everything so damn complex for the users? I mean, this is so ridiculous.
