I cannot root, flowing steps above (with my T231 tab), but I had success with some change below:
1. put the device into download mode by holding power+vol down+home (warning message appear, and then press vol up) and connect to computer with usb cable.

2. now run odin 1.85 and select PDA and then select the openrecovery-twrp-2.8.0.1-degas.tar file (I had uncheck AutoReboot, uncheck ResetTime)

3 .hit start in odin and as soon as odin is finished the device turns off for reboot (I had power off manual, because uncheck Auto reboot above)

Next steps the same with intruction above.

Thanks pinksworld & CyberLoveMD & ALL

Note: After finished using odin, use power manual but dont just the power button. You must Press Power+Vol Up+Home..

    Thanks OP...
    This method works.
    The key thing is one needs to use Odin 1.85 & not Odin3.9
    So stop blaming him for helping out!
