Hey guys I have looked for a forum for samsung's new entry level tablet Tab A7(2020) SM-T500 and cannot find one. This device released in september and is decent alternative to amazon's fire tablet line. It does have some software shortcomings and came here looking to see if there is any developers working on it and no luck finding any. Does anybody know of development on this tablet at this time?

What do we think are the odds of it being rootable? Is it just Verizon tablets (using a SM-T378V atm) that have issues with unlocking the bootloader? Is it just gonna be an issue of time since it was just released? I'm hoping that since it's Wi-Fi only it shouldn't have as many hoops to jump through. It's on sale at Wal-Mart atm for $170 atm so veryyy tempted to pull the trigger on upgrading

Not sure about the Walmart model, but it's been rooted:
