Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Code:
 * Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or your getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Supported Models:
Galaxy Tab S7+ T978U, T978U1 and T978W.
Galaxy Tab S7 T878U, T878U1 and T878W.

US/Canada bootloader unlock thread:
here

Download & Guide:
1. Unlock your bootloader.
2. Download Tab S7+ 5G: gts7xl.
3. Reboot to download mode and flash vbmeta_disabled.tar in AP slot and reboot. Device will reboot to stock recovery mode prompting you to wipe data so wipe data and reboot to download mode again.
4. Put the TWRP tar for your device with Odin in the AP slot and click start.
5. Reboot to recovery via recovery key combo.
6. Disable encryption:
Or:
- Go to Advanced > Terminal, type: multidisabler.​
If vendor complain about free space left on device, will attempt to resize vendor. and it ask to - Run multidisabler again!.​
- Type: multidisabler again. will see - Finished. when done.​
7. Go back to Wipe > Format Data > type yes.
8. Reboot to recovery.
9. Flash magisk apk in twrp.
10. Reboot to system, Enjoy.

Note:
To disable encryption manually:
You need to replace fileencryption=ice with encryptable=ice only in userdata line (maybe rest lines) in vendor/etc/fstab.qcom
To avoid stock recovery restoration manually:
Rename system/recovery-from-boot.p to recovery-from-boot.p.bak

Support:
Live support is available via #twrp on Freenode with your IRC client or just click this link.

If I don't care about flashing in TWRP (yet) can I just flash recovery and see it running? (Basically is the wipe data optional)

To clarify, US tab s7+ (SM-T970N) snapdragon requires the paid token unlock before this can be flashed?

If it doesn't boot on T870 then its not supported.
I have rooted my SM-T870 by inserting Magisk into AP file and flashing it with odin. Only problem is that now i have in magisk A/B - NO. Which means my partitions are not flashed. I run into problems trying to execute some root programs where they crash since they dont have access to both partitions. Is there any way to root partition A/B?

    The recovery seems to splash loop after flashing and using a Android 12 GSI.
    Looking a GitHub it seems to be a recovery issue

    I'm happy to provide logs if needed
    Thanks, will make new twrp when I fix the issue.
