How to root Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T710 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop [Guide]

The problem is that it isn’t possible to take a full backup of the data on a device by using any one app or simple solution from the OS. Once you have access to the root file system, however, you can install apps like the Orange Backup application.
