I have unlocked the bootloader and rooted my tab a7 sm-t500 using magisk.
Now trying to flash twrp as per this guide.
I flashed blank_vbmeta via odin successfully.
But when I try to flash recovery.tar the odin is stuck at SetupConnection.. and after some time it shows failed message.
Please help.

Are you using the cable that came with the tablet? Samsung and Odin can be very picky about cables. You can also try running Odin as an Administrator.

You need to reboot the tablet to system, connect wifi, skip the rest of setup, make sure dev mode and OEM still enabled and then reboot to download mode after each flash. But you could have flashed both files in one flash by putting recover.tar in AP and vbmeta in USERDATA.
 
Im still having issues with backup on tarp dyna patch format reboot, muit disabler format reboot and still won't work, and tryed with just wipe and not at all the last time and no difference, am I doing something wrong? Any advice, I'm not going to fash blank vbmata to userdata or it will trip my binary
Thanks in advance!!!

Hi,

Sorry for my confusion about this all....

Does this custom recovery also works for a Samsung Galaxy SM-T505 2020?

Thx for any confirmation :)

    Introduction

    Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system, functions often unsupported by stock recovery images. It is, therefore, often installed when rooting Android devices, although it isn't dependent on a device being rooted to be installed.


    Installation Instructions

    If TWRP Already Installed

    • Download recovery.img from below
    • Copy recovery.img to device
    • Install > Install Image > recovery.img to Recovery
    • Reboot > Recovery
    • Enjoy

    From PC

    • Download Odin Flashable Tar from bellow
    • Put tablet into Odin Download Mode
    • Flash Blank vbmeta via Userdata
    • Flash Odin Flashable Tar via AP
    • Enjoy

    Working
    • ADB
    • MTP
    • Everything, except decryption of internal data (havent tested)

    Bugs
    (My tablet is already decrypted so haven't tested this, please advise)
    • OS-encrypted storage (Internal Data) not able to be decrypted in TWRP.

    Glad it's working well for you. And to be honest, I've tried a few GSI roms and they work well, like crDroid GSI and CAOS GSI... I've been trying to cook up my own port of a few ROMs also to no avail yet but soon...
