New build is up in the main post with 2021-01-05 Security patches, crDroid has been slow with their updates.
TWRP 3.5.0 for the SM-T350 added to the main post.
I was just literally going to post that the link is missing.DO NOT USE TWRP 22.214.171.124 until nubianprince and I discuss. I found one bug and another potentially serious one that will cause a boot loop and you will have to revert back to stock to fix. For the latter, more research is required to figure out what's going on.
Use 3.3.1, it's what I have used to flash the T350 over 100 times during development.
I already sent nubianprince a PM, but this will take some time to figure out. I know he's busy and 3.3.1 works fine so there's no urgent need to fix this right away.
Okay, I got my original nougat downloaded, flashed my tablet and went through what I recall are the exact same steps yesterday and I cannot recreate the problem. My rom boots correctly and adb works in TWRP with 3.5.0_10.
DO NOT USE TWRP 126.96.36.199
Hey RT,For those who don't know TWRP 3.5.0 is the major version of the software. The _10 indicates that it's meant for devices that shipped with Android 10. See
[stuff about flashing down to the bare metal]TWRP 3.5.0 is here, and it finally brings support for devices that launched with Android 10. Read on to know more!www.xda-developers.com
There's no magic above. You just use odin and flash stock rom. It's already scripted inside to flash over all the partitions that are included in the zip. For the 95% of the people reading this who run Windows this will work fine.Hey RT,
Would you mind thumbnailing the steps to restore completely to stock including all partitions drivers etc, and then installing the ROM?
The new version that nubianprince posted is 3.5.0_9. I have tested the above, except for backup/restore, and verify it works. In addition, more importantly for people developing the rom, is that adb debugging works in TWRP mode.New version of TWRP 3.5.0 posted
- Format data
- Advanced wipe (data,cache,system,dalvik)
- Install ROM
- Backup restore
Feb 7, 2021 update. See post #671BOE panel fix
For people who get black or blank screens when trying to flash TWRP 3.3.1 or lineageos or crDroid SM-T350 roms, it's likely you have a BOE sourced panel. There is a fix as documented with the help of @lpedia. See pages 61 and 62 at
The above tells you why the problem exists and how flashing a 1MB aboot.mbn fixes it.
Once you're back to stock, I assume one needs to use Odin to put twrp back on right? And a special Odin compliant one? I'm going to do this today.There's no magic above. You just use odin and flash stock rom. It's already scripted inside to flash over all the partitions that are included in the zip. For the 95% of the people reading this who run Windows this will work fine.
Since I'm in Canada, I picked from here the T350XXU1CQJ5 because that's the last stock that was on my tablet.

If you use linux, like me, you unzip the stock zip file and take a look at the stock partition names and match them up with the .pit file and manually type in the commands to do it. Something like
It's more work and potentially error prone especially if you mess up the secure and android bootloader you will get a bricked device, but you also learn more. This is how lpedia and discovered the root cause of the BOE problem at
