The Deathly version has a kernel that allows numerous tweaks, add-ons etc. I have it installed only because I could tune the battery charging rate. Without the ability to do this the vanilla version charges the battery at a rate far below the Samsung original spec, so much so that charging during tablet use barely keeps up at all.But what the hell is the difference between "Vanilla" and "Deathly"???
My current version of TWRP doesn't load when I download the updates. I have to use Pwr - Vol+ and Home keys to boot to TWRP. Can someone share the TWRP that works for booting to recovery and installing the updates. Aslo, is there a working supersu for booting to recovery, or is the current Magisk the way to go. I'm using TWRP 3.3.1-0
Well mate you just helped me tremendously!! Been wanting to do this to my 800 for a while. Now I have the n00b version of the How To!! Thanks again!! now I'll go update my tablet.SUCCESS Went through set up and seems working fine first impressions.
How I did it in 2021:
I have a Samsung Tab S - SM-T800 - on android 6.0.1 not rooted
1: These are the files that I have used
2: I installed the Samsung USB drivers - and checked that I could transfer files to and from the PC - in this step I added the files into my external SD Card:
3: Once they were copied over - I unplugged the tablet and powered it off.
4: I opened ODIN on my win10 machine
5: I booted the tablet into download mode - by pressing the HOME-VOL:downOWER at the same time
6: I added the twrp-3.5.0_9-0-chagallwifi.img.tar file into the AP of Odin. Go to options, and deselect "auto-reboot"
7: Pressed START in Odin and waited for the Green PASS! to show.
8: Unplugged cable from the tablet
9: This is important -
You need to power off and power on back to the recovery you just flashed - if you miss this you may have to start again from the top here.
When done press HOME-VOL:downOWER for about 5 to 8 seconds - the screen will change and as soon as it changes let go and repress HOME-VOL:upOWER at the same time - the only change is the volume to UP. This will then boot to TWRP.
10: when TWRP first comes on - just swipe right
11: On the home screen of TWRP - I decided to make a backup - so I went to back up - and backed up to my SD Card. This takes a long time
12: when this was done - I went WIPE - and selected Format Data
13: when done go back and select INSTALL - here choose:
lineage-14.1-20210122-UNOFFICIAL-chagallwifi - then add zip and choose
addonsu-16.0-arm-signed - then add zip and choose
14: Start flashing. this is quite quick except for the Gapps.
15: When done - you will be asked to format cache and davlik partitions click it and when done - REBOOT
16: Wait a while, you should see the Samsung Logo - then the blue arc of LineageOS and go through the set up. The first boot can take 4 to 6 minutes - in my case, it was about 6 minutes.
17: Optional ROOT
Go to Settings > About Tablet > tap the build number seven times to enable developer options
Then go back and go to > Developer Options > Root Access. and choose what you want - I selected Apps Only.
I hope this helps anyone looking to do the same and wanted to say THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAS HELPED ME.

I hope it works as smooth as it did for me - was looking around a lot for a recent guide but took a while so thought to post the way I did it that worked for me easily...
No problems since the install and use it just fine still and nothing to report.
Would you mind adding the links to the files you used? I wanna make SURE I don't mess this up

Thanks so much! I sent it right to my dropbox! Guess I'll either brick my 800 or update it in the next few days
Not having any luck at step 9 After the flash of TWRP and I get a GREEN PASS from Odin the screen on the tablet shows the Android graphic and the warning do not turn off target. I can't power off with the power button. If I power off with the HOME+VOL Down+Power it just reboots the tab to desktop....so I guess my question would be "How to you power off after the flash of TWRP?"Good luck - this is how it was when I did it using guides from all over and help from some here and there and decided to go for it and it worked using the method above for me - let me know how you get on!
After flash with TWRP you can power off with a LOOOOOOONG press on the power button !Not having any luck at step 9 After the flash of TWRP and I get a GREEN PASS from Odin the screen on the tablet shows the Android graphic and the warning do not turn off target.
