Once the file is downloaded you need to extract it, the extracted contents will be like the one shown in the below screenshot.

2. In the next step, you need to enable the "USB debugging" on your Tab S2 if not enabled already. To enable USB debugging please go to "Settings-> Developer options"and enable the "USB debugging" from the "Developer options" menu. If there is no developer options under the "Settings" menu please tap on the "build number" 7 times under "About device".

The detailed steps to enable USB debugging is explained for Marshmallow firmware below, the procedure is almost same on Nougat.

3. Now please enable "OEM unlock" if not done already. To enable "OEM unlock" please go to Settings>About phone, and tap on the “Build number” 10 times until you get a message that you are a “developer.". Once you have enabled the "Developer Options" tap on it from the "Settings" main menu and you will see the same screen as shown below.

Now click on "OEM unlocking" and you will get a popup warning as shown below, tap enable it if you would like to proceed.

 

Alternately you can try the dedicated tutorial given below for enabling "OEM unlock".

4. After "OEM Unlock" is enabled, please switch off your Tab S2 and enter it into the "Download mode". To enter into "Download Mode" please press and hold the "Power"+"Vol Down"+"Home" buttons until you get a warning screen. Once you get the warning screen please release all the buttons and press "Vol Up" button to enter into the "Download mode".

Kindly check the below "Download mode" tutorial for Marshmallow firmware, the procedure is almost same for Nougat.

5. Now you need to open the "Odin" application as administrator and have to connect your Tab S2 using the USB data cable to your computer. If the connection was successful you will get an "Added" message from "Odin" application. If you didn't get an "Added" message please reinstall the Samsung USB drivers for your device and try again.

6. Now please click the "AP" button in the Odin app and select the "tar.md5" file which you have already downloaded and extracted to your PC.

Once confirmed that everything is done as mentioned in the above steps, please press the "Start" button in the Odin to begin the rooting procedure. Please note that your tab may restart once the rooting process is finished so sit back and relax and enjoy the root.

Sometimes bad things can happen, so if you are thrown into an endless android bootloop after this procedure please resolve it by following the below given tutorial. Don't worry because boot loop is a glitch in android firmware which can be resolved easily.

Hi, I followed the procedure with SM-T719 but after reboot, "Verification failed" message appeared: "Unable to restart your device. The integrity verification has failed. You need to reset your device to factory default settings. This will erase all your data." Any hint what to do now?

I have downloaded the CF-Auto-Root-gts28velte-gts28veltexx-smt719.zip from the link "Downloads To Root Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 LTE SM-T719" so I thought it was the correct one. Anyway, thanks for the hint, I will try.

My friend your device is from T-Mobile. All carrier locked tabs/phones should be unlocked (bootloader) first before rooting it.
Reply Reply with quote
No it is not tied or locked to any carrier.
As the data is anyway lost, I returned to stock rom and maybe will try once again.

I can see that you have T-Mobile version here. Please unlock the bootloader to have that option.


Thanks. Not T-Mobile, bought a wifi only from Amazon. Based on my reading, it looks like I will have to connect to a PC and downloaded added tools to unlock the bootloader. Is that correct?

Sorry my bad. No ignore the OEM unlock part and continue with the rooting steps and let me know the result. Make sure that you have made a complete backup of your internal storage.

Hello. Running Nogut on Sm-t810, developer mode is enabled, but OEM Unlock is not one of the choices. After "snoop log" the next switch is "running services."

Sadly I followed all the passages correctly for my SM-T819 and my device got factory reset when the process finished (there was no problem because I saved important things knowing it could have happened). Fact is that I was happy to have my device finally rooted (I can't find a way to root my Huawei p10 lite) but when I installed root checker and SuperSU I discovered my device wasn't rooted........how can I do to do a successful root now?

Please try the tutorial again. Also unlock the bootloader if it's locked, make sure you have the same firmware version mentioned here.
By the way once you have successfully rooted, the SuperSU will be automatically installed on your phone, you don't have to do it manually.

I'm very sorry to hear that. But this method is 100% working. Maybe some recent android update has played the trick.
