Once again, not being sarcastic. I appreciate anything chainfire does, but i honestly see no benefit to using cf-autoroot. I have always installed TWRP first, via fastboot or odin, then flash supersu in it. To me, this seems the most logical way to do things. And, its more universal. Thanks

Would it trip the knox status if I just flash TWRP via odin?

Man, im totally new to samsung devices. Never been a big fan. The only reason I got this tab was for the incredible display... Anyhow, I dont know about the knox thing. I would just delete it. It sounds like junk software anyway made to make life difficult for rooters. I deleted it on my device and havent had any problems. But my honest opinion is that if you are going to root any device, flash TWRP or some recovery, then flash supersu. Its really the only logical thing to do. That way you can make nandroid backups to recover from. This whole autoroot thing just sounds like a pain to me, but thats my opinion. What if something goes wrong when your updating or changing your rom?? Well if you have a nandroid backup, no problem.

OH, I forgot - If you are already rooted and are now looking for a recovery, id go with the dd method. That way you can do it right from inside android. As long as you have busybox, or dd installed.

check your knox status to see if it got tripped. If the knox status is tripped, you will lose your warranty
