Ported To the Tab S 8.4 By:@BeansTown106

First off, Huge Thanks to Chainfire for coming up with AutoRoot & for his SuperSU App

Warning: I cannot be held responsible for anything you do to your phone, rooting is optional! This Does Trip The Knox Warranty Bit Built into the Bootloader of the Tab S 10.5

How To Enter Download Mode
Method 1: in command prompt or terminal on computer enter: adb reboot download
Method 2:Turn Off Tablet, Hold Volume Down + Power. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Rooting Instructions
1.Boot into Download mode (see methods above)
2.Flash CF_AutoRoot_Port_T700_BeansTown106.tar.md5 with Odin v3.09 (put in AP slot, don't change any other settings, click start)
3.Let it do its trick! Confirm root!
4.Reboot into recovery mode and confirm stock recoverys presence
That's all! Enjoy Root!


Please Keep in Mind i dont have this tab but would LOVE to develop on it!

If you haven't already, pick up a copy of SuperSU Pro to support Chainfire! Well worth the $2.49!

Is anyone else losing their WiFi password after rebooting?

thank you beans !!

Was in the process of unpacking the cache.img (already modified recovery.img) to see what needed to be done.

You and Chainfire saved us a lot of time and allows us the true freedom of our device.

Now, off to build my kernel

Worked like a charm.

FWIW: I had to hold down Power, Volume Down *and* Home to get to the Downloader.

Odin 3.09 can be found here:
