TWRP installation changed

Download folder.T860
Download folder.T865
WETA Kernel


* Unlock bootloader first
* Reboot recovery and reboot system now behave normally after flashing.
* No more patching in Magisk manager at all.
* Be aware, first clean boot, hangs on building cache, hard reboot after waiting about 3min and you'll boot past this
* If simply updating your existing TWRP, v9 upwards, you only need to flash the TWRP.img in recovery. No need to reflash kernel and Magisk.

Process from bone stock
1. Flash TWRP.tar in Odin
2. Reboot directly into TWRP
3. Format data, reboot recovery
4. Flash custom kernel (Android 10, this is optional)
5. Flash encryption disabler.
6. Unmount system, Flash Magisk 20.4
7. Reboot system

Process from existing TWRP
1. Flash TWRP.img to recovery
2. Reboot recovery
3. Flash Kernel zip
4. Unmount system and Flash Magisk zip
5. Reboot system

If anyone tries flashing this on the LTE device let me know if it works out fine, including booting into system and checking WiFi and everything works.

This is quoted from a Google search.

"It's almost always the fact that you didn't have Odin up and running with all the info in ahead of time before you plug the tablet into the USB port"

I'll check the tar file when I get home, but i doubt it's the file. I could be wrong but...

I can flash firmware and root my T865 with Odin without any problem.

Ok I'll check the tar file later. You can try since you are already rooted, pulling the recovery.IMG out if the tar, and using dd to flash it in an terminal emulator if you're Keen.

Or create another recovery.tar using 7zip to flash in Odin.

It may be checking the device number and denying it

Did it boot to a rooted system or stock?

If you could go into the telegram thread and we can chat about it in there, id like to get this sorted out for other users

Finally, I could boot into TWRP after using dd to flash it in an terminal emulator. After that I flash the encryption disabler and format data then I try to reboot into TWRP again but it did not. In stead it's booting in to the system now. Still stuck in Samsung logo now. 1569953465310.jpg

The tablet is running fine now. Magisk is working right after the tablet booted. But it just can't boot into TWRP. Tried to reboot to recovery from Magisk and manually still not working. Seems to stuck about a minute or 2 at this screen everytime I reboot or try to boot into TWRP then it just boot straight to the system. received_554373258639685.jpg

First clean boot, you need to hard reboot after 3min

You can't boot to recovery from magisk. It won't work.

You need to manually reboot to recovery.

Hold down vol up and bix button until the splash screen, then let go and reapply the buttons again quickly, while the red writing is present. Keep holding them. That is how I get to recovery.

But they're may be more going on seeing as though you got a t865

Seems like that tar file was screwed up somehow. It wouldnt flash formme either, I've repackaged it and now it does. And I boot into recovery no issues.

Are you still having trouble getting into recovery?

    Hello friends of rooted OS,

    I have been trying to root my Tab S6 using the method described.. unfortunately with no luck.

    Model: T860
    Bootloader: Unlocked
    Android 11 (Latest Stock Build CUK1)
    TWRP version used: TWRP_gts6lwifi_3.4.0-16-portrait
    WETA: WETA_Kernel_T860-6.1_TF1.zip tried also 7.0
    Encryption disabler: Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_11.02.2020.zip, tried also multidisabler-samsung-3-1-zip
    Magisk: latest
    Format Data: yes
    System: unmounted

    That leads to Bootloot. Read somewhere, in that case to shutdown device and wait 3 min.
    so i have a few questions:
    how i can shutdown my device: i tried to quit bootloop by getting into TWRP. But in TWRP shutdown leads to reboot and boot loop?
    Do i have the problems because of some rom changes or misuse from my side?

    I tried to flash older rom to use "rooted stock" from mega.nz. But downgrading seams not to be allowed from samsung!?

    Tried to visit the telegram channel, but seams not available anymore.
    Tried to find out of which Weta Kernel is appropiate (TF1 or TF2) and looked for GitHub Sides, couldn´t find infos.
    Tried to look for tutorial in the net. Seems all to be outdated. puhh.

    Thanks in advance for your kind help! Much appreciated.
    so answer to myself:
    found out that WETA Kernel is optional. Flashed it without and works fine. Maybe it´s not CUK1 ready

    TWRP installation changed

    Download folder

    It is now possible to reboot rooted and reboot recovery without the button combo. To achieve this we need to flash custom kernel to boot.img and flash magisk via TWRP. TWRP now, should not be patched with magisk either. In the downloads folder, is a kernel zip for your device. This needs to be flashed in TWRP followed by the flashing of Magisk zip (19.4 recommended.)

    After that, I would reflash an unpatched TWRP.img from within TWRP to recovery partition. This eliminates magisk from the recovery side of things, which isn't needed anymore.

    Process from stock (rooted)
    1. Flash TWRP.tar in Odin
    2. Reboot directly into TWRP
    3. Flash Kernel zip
    4. Flash Magisk zip
    5. Flash encryption disabler if desired.
    6. Reboot system (not recovery)

    Process from existing TWRP
    1. Flash unpatched TWRP.img to recovery
    2. Reboot recovery
    3. Flash Kernel zip
    4. Flash Magisk zip
    5. Reboot system (not recovery
