WHATS THIS?

This is my port of CF-AUTOROOT for the Samsung Galaxy TAB E.

You flash this at your own risk. Please ensure you have the stock ROM to hand downloaded from SAMMOBILE or a TWRP backup in case of problems. This will trip the knox counter.

Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.


cfautoroot_sm-t377p.tar

cfautoroot_sm-t560nu.tar

NOTE: ON SOME 5.1.1 DEVICES IT IS NECESSARY TO GO TO:
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
AND ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.


STOCK TWRP IMAGE FOR SM-T377P
This is a link to the stock system, boot, modem image for the T377P in case anyone needs it. Needs to be restored with twrp.
Thanks to @shawn1976 for providing this.

FRP lock

Any suggestions on getting pass an FRP lock? My niece tried to root it but didn't turn on the enable OEM unlock. I just literally got it so don't have a back up and stock rom is no where I can find online even tried the Samsung Switch software and the T377P is not an option.

Isn't there a recovery mode in the SS software that allows the firmware to be reflashed?

That was my plan ...however they do not support this model number yet so its not available to be reflashed. I checked sammobile as well figuring I could download firmware and use Odin to reflash and same situation.

Hi, I had a question. The Samsung Tab E is my first android device (I am a IOS user, so i know how to Jailbreak, but I don't know how to root!). My friend told me to root it, but I don't really know how to do it. Can you post a step by step tutorial. Also, after i rooted can i update my device to a newer version or do i have to remove the root. Lastly, how do you back up your device? Thank you! I appreciate your hard work!

You can follow the tutorial below, it's for the Tab A but the procedure is identical.
Obviously don't use the cf_autoroot file in the tutorial use the one here. Also note the PDA button in Odin is now called AP.

You can update your device with odin anytime you want but not via ota.
To back up you device you need to install TWRP.
Search Google for info on using TWRP.

There's a chance the sm-t377R4 firmware may flash as it's practically identical to the sprint firmware just a different csc.

I tried the t377R4 firmware that didn't work. Any idea on where I could track down a copy of the t377p? Odd I can't even use the Samsung Smart Switch or even Kies as it doesn't recognize the model number. Or if anyone has a backup available they can share please let me know.

I have a US Cellular Samsung Tab E SM-T377R4 and I rooted it using the procedure below. The root process went fine and everything is working well except Recovery Mode does not work. It just boots to a black blank screen when I try to go to Recovery Mode. But that's no big deal to me.

Surprised recovery doesn't work, considering the 2 devices are identical specs.
Try installing Twrp, you'll probably find that works OK.

Same problem here... I've been looking all over for a copy of the SM-T377P stock ROM. Anyone that happens to have a copy/link for it please share.

Rooting gone bad... Rooted my SM-T377P with KingRoot and there is an FRP Lock that comes up a week later. All of the custom ROM versions I have keep getting rejected by ODIN every time I try to flash them. The only other way I can think of doing this is to flash the stock ROM for the device.

You realise you can't flash a custom rom with odin?
Also when you flash the stock t377r4 firmware what part fails?

    Is there anyway to root the new MM update on sm-t560nu? I flashed the TWRP 3.0.2.1 and it did not work. It said that it passed in ODIN but I'm still on stock recovery
    Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
    Uncheck Auto reboot.
    Load the respective file into the AP slot and hit start.
    After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
    As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding POWER + HOME.
    You should now see TWRP recovery.

    Does anyone have the stock rom that came with the Smt377p or a copy of their current rom? I'm rooted as of now but I need to reflash all the system files I guess.

    Edit: I removed the SD card from the tablet, and inserted it into my phone and the full list of folders showed. Yet, My tablet is also showing no folders on the internal memory. I somehow believe this is related to sdfix I used while trying to run Xmodgames for clash of clans.. It's starting to feel like the system is corrupted on where it should actually store the files. However, when I reinsert it into the tablet, no folders are present whatsoever. I have no earthly idea what to do besides do a complete reflash. Any ideas?

    This is one reason why I always suggest making a full backup with TWRP before modifying your device.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3302935

    See if you can access anything via twrp.

    Seems like you have installed something that is crashing your device.

    The Sm-t377p firmware isn't available. However there is something you can try.

    First of all make a full backup on an external sd card with TWRP, this is important.

    Download the Sm-t377r4 firmware from sammobile. Try to download a build as near to yours as possible.

    Extract the system.img.ext4 from the firmware using 7zip.

    Next re-tar the system.img.ext4 with 7zip.
    Right click it then select create archive. Select TAR and STORE as the only options.

    Put the resulting tar file in the AP slot of odin and flash.

    Hopefully this gets you back to a working system.
