Galaxy Tab S4 in bootloop - I need to delete something from the storage through ABD

Hello.
The tablet - Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 itself turned off and got into a bootloop - it doesn't boot into the system because there is not enough memory. Before that it worked fine.
All on the tablet is stock and official, there is no root.

Wipe cache partition tried many times already.

The problem is that there is not enough memory on the tablet - so I need to find a way to delete something, for example, the Tik Tok or YouTube Vanced application.
How to do it using computer and ADB? Here's what I tried: https://postimg.cc/QBb20twx .
ADB sees my tablet only when I enable ADB SIDELOAD mode in recovery: when I select "Apply update from ADB" in recovery. ( https://postimg.cc/PpfjjZYw )

Is there any way to free up some space?

It will be better to find a way without installing root or custom recovery - so that the Knox counter doesn't count.

Error in recovery ( https://postimg.cc/XBFrycqF/c9784539 ):
! ! Caution! !
Not enough storage resource.
Perform "lacking storage booting".

The recovery says that I can try to boot my tablet using a boot with insufficient storage - "lacking storage booting", but there is no such item in my recovery ( https://postimg.cc/XBFrycqF/c9784539 ).
Maybe I should try to install another version of official Samsung firmware or another version of official Samsung recovery that will have "lacking storage booting" feature?

I can't delete all data from the tablet - I'm looking for different way.

Is it possible through ADB to delete something from the tablet in my case?

Many thanks to everyone who will try to help me.

have you tried reboot system? if not then yes i would recommend that you try flashing a firmware update. you can get it from https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ just make sure that you use the correct firmware for your device. the device model has to match with your download so make sure that you have the right one before installing. installing a firmware that is not made for your device can ruin it.

Examine that screen shot you posted, it's not referring to the internal storage media, it is instead referring to a 'storage booting' problem. Your bootloader is apparently corrupted.
Try flashing the appropriate stock ROM for your Tab S4, with Samsung ROMs the flashing process involves reinstalling the stock Samsung Recovery and the stock operating system. Hopefully it is just a software issue. If the internal storage chip itself is failing however, that's a more serious hardware issue.

Did you mean have I tried to reboot the tablet?
Yes, I have tried it many times.

keep us posted if it worked or not.
Unfortunately flashing ROM was unsuccessful.
I tried to change USB cable, to change USB port, different version of Odin but nothing helped.
Please look at screenshots.

It seems like a connection problem, as I understand it.

can you post the entire output? best way to do this is to copy the entire output and then paste it into something like notepad. you can then take a screenshot of the notepad and post it here. its hard to see why it failed.

also the first screenshot mentioned a "md5 hash value invalid". have you tried re-downloading the firmware? are you sure you have the correct firmware for your device? like i said they are very device specific.

Yes, I tried to redownload the firmware in Odin.
I checked name of file firmware: T835PUU5CVE2_T835SER5CVE2. Model of my tablet SM-T835 (it written on a sticker on my tablet.

I am trying to flash firmware again now.
This is a code from Odin:

I have tried 2 cables.
I can try some other USB-cables.

Maybe I should to download different firmware or try to flash my tablet on my work using different PC?
No never use a different firmware. Use the one that's specific to your device. A different PC might work. Or redownload the firmware and try again.

Tried to use different version of Odin - Odin 3.12 (PrinceComsy).
The result is the same unfortunately.
Tried to update the drivers and change the cable and switch to different USB ports.

With ADB indicating a 'storage booting' problem; and Odin showing different Failed error messages in the screen caps you posted <ID:0/008> FAIL! (DeviceInfo and the log file posting <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1); in aggregate three separate and different error messages indicate a problem with your Tab S4 being a more serious hardware issue rather than a software issue.
