Galaxy Tab S came tagged under a list of variants. One of the LTE variants of Galaxy Tab S is T807. Samsung has now rolled out Android 5.0 Lollipop for almost all variants of the Galaxy Tab S, and T807 is also enjoying the Lollipop sweetness now. Earlier we posted the method to root and install TWRP recovery on other variants of Galaxy Tab S 10.5, but the method wasn’t available for T807 running Lollipop at that time. The good news for SM-T807 users is, root and TWRP recovery are now available for SM-T807.
