Hi Guys,

I have question with regards to rooting of Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE version. I am suppose to follow this link , however, I need to verify few things to make sure i will not break the device.

1. Does the link I provided is good start and I can successfully root the device?
2. What happen if my device is rooted and there's new android version (say 4.4.3), do I get the update and can install it on the device?
3. How can I unroot the device incase I need to send back the unit for warranty?
4. Does Samsung will know if the device is rooted before?
5. What is the risk involve on rooting?
6. Do i need to restore the device before I do rooting?
7. Do I loose some features on the Samsung Tab if I root the device (such as stay wake, Finger scanner, etc)? - I like some features on Samsung Tab, but the reason for me to root is to remove other appsthat samsung installed, to free up space by installing Folder Mount and move some apps to SD card, to gain more visibility/ control of the device, etc .

Pardon me if I post on the wring section of the forum or It is forbidden to post such question, but I just needed to know these things before I proceed with rooting the device. I am also looking to root my Note 4


Thanks in advance.

firstly.. there are Q&A and troubleshooting section here http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-tab-s/help where you are suppose to start this thread.

any way i'll answer your doubt.

1. yes its a good place. but just use a proper files from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...nfire-t2881826
2. you can download the full stock firmware at sammobile.com and flash it using odin.
3. Just enter the supersu apps and click unroot in the option. that's all. or just flash the official stock firmware via odin
4,5 Yes and you loose the warranty and now knox meter will be 0x1
6. No
7. Screen Mirror might not working. others work as usual unless you remove some required files. i think folder mount wont work on 4.4.2

Thanks, edan1979 .

Based on the site you've provided ([ROOT]Official CF-Auto-Root By Chainfire.) I am wondering if my device is capable and do I get the correct CF-Auto. I am attaching a screenshot of "About Device" of y Tab S 8.4 LTE.

This is my first time to root a device, so im a bot hesitant and would want to get more info as possible.

Thanks.

Thanks, edan1979. Do you have Tab S8.4LTE where you already root it? hows it performs? better than Stock ?

Additional question, the firmware from http://www.sammobile.com/ is stock or custom?

So if I rooted my device, it will not AUTO update right? which I need to download the firmware from http://www.sammobile.com/, after I flash it, do I need to re-root the device?

Thanks.
