For a faster way to download firmware than sammobile samFW & Frija work pretty good :

samFW:
https://samfw.com/firmware/SM-T870/XAR

Frija's the best... IMO.
agreed with you because with SamMobile free download package you received limited download speed and premium packages are costly . in this regard there are few sites that provide fast and free downloading speed, really appreciate their work like:

SamFirms: https://samfirms.com/

I tried to use the standard method outlined here to root my Tablet after updating to the June version of firmware (BUF5). But for some reason flashing the modified boot.img file from OSDIN fails. I finally gave up and went back to the BUE2 version following the same procedures and it worked just fine. Has Samsung pulled a fast on on us to block us from rooting?

Does anybody have any thoughts on this or has anyone experienced similar issues? I have searched far and wide but nothing similar shows up. I left a question on the Magisk site but no answer yet. Surely I am not the first person to see this.

I had no issue of updating my SM-T970 to firmware (BUF5) with root. My guess is it would be the same for SM-T870.

My steps:
1. flashed the vbmeta_disable image (put into USERDATA slot) along with the stock firmware (BL, AP and HOME_CSC)
2. flashed magisk_patched.tar for root.
