    Tabs S2 T817T 6.01 got stuck at boot logo

    It didn’t root his device. We got stuck at the boot logo just as Alonso did, and we performed a hard reset. We also have the SM-T817T on 6.0.1

    Since we couldn’t get into the factor recovery for the device we got into download mode and flashed TWRP on it with ODIN and performed a factory reset there. After that we were able to make it past the logo, however no root.
