3.3.0-0

twrp-3.3.0-0-gtexswifi.img
twrp-3.3.0-0-gtexswifi.tar

Here for anyone who wants to play around with the latest version. I make no guarantees as to its stability or compatibility with old roms, just something to try.

I'm not sure if i did something wrong or didn't have enough patience but my device got stuck at the loading screen after installing twrp 3.4.0-0. So i installed the rom using TWRP-3.2.3-0 and worked fine.

Maybe a bad upload, as the user here had the same problem. I've reuploaded it (tested before uploading it just to be sure it works, no issues).
Here the new link: twrp-3.4.0-0-_mone-gtexswifi.img.
I've updated the links in my previous post and in the OP.

If you try it let me know if it goes well. (Just in case: Remember that you have to flash it in the "recovery" partition)

Noob question: does this affects the device/ROM performance?

With 3.4.0.0 does not start.

I tried the 2 links and went back to 3.2.3.0 and work perfectly.

Thanks.

I'll run my own twrp 3.4 with _mone's updated source:

twrp-3.4.0-0-gtexswifi.img
twrp-3.4.0-0-gtexswifi.tar

    Code:
    ***Disclaimer*** 
    All flashing is done at your own risk!
    While nothing from this thread should break your device,
    don't come back here blaming anyone if it does!

    Always backup your current ROM (and/or keep stock firmware close by) before flashing.

    Big thanks to @ashyx and @jedld for the amazing work done for this device.


    Installation Instructions
    • If you don't have a custom recovery:
    - Download twrp-3.4.0-3-_mone-gtexswifi.tar
    - Reboot your tablet in download mode (power+vol-down+home) and connect it to your pc
    - Using ODIN load the downloaded file to the AP slot and press start
    - As soon the tablet start to reboot hold vol-up and home (don't let it reboot to system)
    - Now you should see TWRP-3.4.0-3
    • If you already have a custom recovery:
    - Download twrp-3.4.0-3-_mone-gtexswifi.img
    - Reboot into recovery mode

    - Reboot the recovery, now you should see TWRP-3.4.0-3


    If you require "root", just download Magisk (v18.1 as of February 2019) and flash it with twrp. You may need to install MagiskManager afterwards. No extra steps required.

    Old root instructions:
    ROOT Instructions
    These methods have been tested on samsung's T280XXU0AQA4 firmware

    - Move the downloaded files to tablet's internal/external sdcard
    - Reboot into recovery mode
    - Flash SuperSU
    - Flash "T280XXU0AQA4-SuperSU-v2.82-boot.img" into boot partition

    I've updated twrp to 3.1.0-1
    Nothing major just some little changes in the device tree.. before I was using sc8830 for the board name (chip), but the actual name is SC7730SW and the platform is sc8830. This should be the definitive build until major updates in the twrp source.

    Thread updated with Magisk-v12.0.
    No need to flash SuperSU with this version.
    SafetyNet Passed (see 1st attached picture). :good:
    If you reboot and open MagiskManager straight you'll probably get "Not rooted" error (see 2nd attached picture); just close the app, wait a bit, reopen it and everything should be ok.

    @_mone just one question. Are you planning/trying to make a custom ROM also for tm-280?

    I really hope so. Thanks

    Yes, I've already started.. but unfortunately I don't have much free time lately so it won't be ready soon.
