Looking to update XAR (USA) Tab S4 - Not finding much recent root info regarding firmware builds released in say the last year.

Is Stock rom with root working on latest Android 10 Rev 5? I believe T830XXU5CVG2 is the latest for USA T830.

I currently have Android 8.1 (M1AJQ.T830XXU2ARJ3) + Magisk 25.2 + TWRP 3.6.2_90

Are the older guides with encryption disabler relevant still? If a previous guides discussing ~2020 Android 10 builds is that same encryption disabler compatible?

I'd like to avoid odin full stock flash all together. Can I patch stock rom AP with Magisk and just flash the patched AP with TWRP? (And wipe internal storage)

Any pointers be helpful. I've found few older guides but wanting to flash latest stock rom which is why I'm a bit hesitant.

Also came across this post that mentions issues with latest Rev 5 and Magisk ? https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...tab-s4-sm-t835-android-10-one-ui-2-1.4441257/

Thanks.

Will this work to update to latest Android 10 Rev 5 -T830XXU5CVG2 ?

Currently Android 8.1 + magisk 25.2 + TWRP 3.6.2

1) Stock rom extract - patch boot.img with Magisk app
2) Backup TWRP 3.6 recovery.img
3) Re-tar patched boot.img + recovery.img to AP MD5. Re-tar entire stock ROM.
4) Flash patched stock ROM with TWRP.
5) Wipe internal data and reboot
