You can flash TWRP two ways, either directly from an existing TWRP install, using the linked TWRP.img file. Or you can flash using Odin and the TWRP.tar file.

You will need a custom kernel with dm-verity disabled to be able to boot up afterwards. You will also need to disable encryption and format data to be able to read from the sdcard (encryption isn't supported).

The flashing process is as follows.

Get yourself onto stock Pie firmware, using Odin to flash the complete package. Before proceeding. Boot up and make sure you have OEM unlock switch and its activated.

1. Boot into Download mode and Flash TWRP (Download) using Odin (use AP)
2. Immediately boot into TWRP after flashing takes place, hold vol up and power.
3. Format data partition (wipe/format data)
4. Reboot recovery
5. Copy WETA Kernel + Encryption disabler + Magisk zip to device. - (Download Kernel - Encryption disabler)
6. Flash WETA Kernel + Encrypt disabler + Magisk zip.
7. Boot up system, if it hangs on Samsung logo after 3min perform hard reboot.
8. Connect to internet and go to dev settings and check oem unlock is present before any rebooting.

** Custom kernel is universal for all bootloader v4 firmware.

Sorry, I completely forgot that

Flash TWRP with Odin
Reboot straight to twrp.
Flash encryption disabler.
Format data.
Reboot recovery.
Mount data make sure you can read it .

Then you can flash a rom, kernel etc. I'll update the op in a bit

Have you flashed a custom kernel? Or at least flashed magisk?

You cant boot using a stock kernel, when you have any other custom features on your device.

7. Boot up system, if it hangs on Samsung logo after 3min perform hard reboot.
8. Connect to internet and go to dev settings and cheeck oem unlock is present before any rebooting.

**Custom kernel is pre-rooted with magisk.
**You will need to manually install magisk manager app.

Some things to note:
0. Requirements are:
  • USB Cable (Samsung Tab S4 default cable recommended)
  • A computer where Odin works (ie. my AM4 X370 Ryzen 7 system did not work, maybe some driver issue?)
  • Best is to put encryption disabler & Kernel onto the micro SD card in the Tab S4 already, you can flash from SD card in TWRP!
1. Flash TWRP in AP slot - beware if you did not untick Auto Reboot, it will immediately restart and you miss 2.
2. Hold those buttons before the vibration kicks in, otherwise you are too late
4. I couldn't do that from TWRP itself for some reason (it just shut off), but button combo worked perfectly
5. [Edit] Do that before hand, I recommend the micro SD card you can put into the Tab S4
6. I flashed encryption disabler (V2) first, then you have to flash the kernel image, flash it to BOOT!
7. Don't just wait 3 min, my Tablet booted after 10 min without issue! I had this before aswell, you just need to give it more time!

Question: Can I update Magisk with this?

Yeah flashing magisk should be fine once your data partition is unencrypted.

    Install instructions

    Post #2 has been updated with a new kernel installer. The issue with the old one is that the magisk environment needed to be present in data if the zip was going to work, and of course wiping data removed that. This zip works without Magisk environment.

    I am new to Tab S4. Format data, what will be affected? Thanks
    Formatting data , formats your data partition. So everything.
