Install TWRP Recovery & Root Galaxy Tab S 10.5 T807

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.

If you’ve been waiting to root your Galaxy Tab S 10.5 SM-T807, this may be the right time for you. In the following post we are going to show you how can install TWRP recovery and then easily root your Galaxy Tab S 10.5 T807 on Android Lollipop. This method will also work with Tab S 10.5 running older versions of Android.

Install TWRP & Root Galaxy Tab S 10.5 T807 On Android Lollipop

  1. Open Odin3 V3.10.6.exe that you extracted on your PC.
  2. Put your Tab S 10.5 in download mode now. To do so, turn it off completely. Now turn it on by pressing and holding Volume Down + Home + Power Key. Once your phone boots up, press the Volume Up key to continue.
  3. Connect your phone to your PC now. The ID:COM box in the top-left corner of Odin3 should  turn blue. This indicates that your phone is connected properly.
  4. Now click the “AP” tab in Odin and select the TWRP Recovery.tar file that you downloaded. It will take a second or two for Odin3 to load this file.
  5. If the Auto-reboot option is unticked, tick it. Leave all other options in Odin3 as they are.Odin 3.10.6 Explained_Techbeasts
  6. Now you’re all set to flash the recovery. Just click the start button in Odin3 and sit back.
  7. Once the process box above ID:COM box shows green light and flashing process is finished, disconnect your device.
  8. Now turn off your device properly as we are going to boot into recovery mode.
  9. Now turn it on by pressing and holding Volume Up + Home + Power Key. This will boot your device in recovery mode. It should be TWRP recovery that you just installed.
  10. Now in TWRP recovery, select Install > locate the file and flash it.
  11. Once flashed, reboot your device.
  12. Checkout the SuperSu in application drawer. Also install BusyBox from Play Store.

  • @disqus_8eFH3svhYU:disqus did this happen after rooting the device?

    • Emre

      No it was not working before but i has opened later as well also do you have a link for T807 stock rom kind regards

      • @disqus_8eFH3svhYU:disqus find stock rom here:

  • Steve

    Very basic question . This article states “This guide is only for Galaxy Tab S 10.5 T807”. The model of mine is “Galaxy Tab S 10.5 T807V”. Am i ok to do this?

  • Jia Chen

    Houston, we may have a problem here. I tried boot into TWRP but it still shows it’s the default recovery (even though Ordin3 indicate a successful flash). Please help!

    • @disqus_blu1mQdsHo:disqus
      Flash TWRP recovery on your phone once again but this time, untick the auto-reboot option in Odin. When the flashing has ended, reboot your device into TWRP recovery manually and see if it sticks or not. Let me know if this works for you.

      • Jia Chen

        Thanks Usama. I unticked the option. Then press power, home and volume up yo boot into recovery. It looks like there is something wrong the twrp recovery then it boot into the default recovery. I’m not sure whether it is because this recovery doesn’t work for t807 with lte model as the file suggest it’s for a t805.

        Any suggestions?

        Thank you very much

        • @disqus_blu1mQdsHo:disqus something may be wrong with the firmware installed on your device currently. You can try flashing a new stock firmware and then try installing TWRP recovery. As far as the model number is concerned, the same recovery works for T805 and T807.

          • Jia Chen

            @usamamujtaba:disqus I tried that and still no luck. It gave me the exactly same error 🙁

          • @disqus_blu1mQdsHo:disqus at the moment, that is the only recovery available for these devices. Let’s wait and see if any other recovery comes up. We sure will link it here. Stay connected with us in the meanwhile.

    I can’t do step 8 (turn off my device. What’s problem?
    My device is T807T (T-Mobile).

  • Ed Ju

    This will not work for T-807V. I get auth fail. Any help? I followed instructions to the letter. My device is Android 5.0.2, baseband verision T807VVRU1BOK3.

    • @ed_ju:disqus no this will not work for T807V. This is only for T807.

  • Derya Gun

    @usamamujtaba:disqus I tried on the SM-T807 ( Turkey – T807JVU1BOK2 ) unfortunately it still could not flash the SuperSU and access root. Is the above method for this SM-T807 or is it for the SM-T807T?

    • @Derya Gun:disqus yes it is for T807, not T807T.
      T807T is the T-Mobile Tab S. This guide is for standard Tab S.

  • Derya Gun

    Root does not work for T807 for Turkey, unfortunately

    • @deryagun:disqus what error did you face? did you face a bootloop or it just didn’t root?

      • Derya Gun

        Started installing from sdcard the
        then gave the following message on the enclosed picture.
        I suppose there is a problem in the file. I downloaded it several times to be sure, but every time gave the same error.

        • @deryagun:disqus What recovery are you using? You’re supposed to use the TWRP recovery. The logs do not appear to be from the TWRP recovery.
