SM-T705, CF-Autoroot already. I was asked the above question. As I have rooted already I cant tell.

1 So if one installs TWRP recovery with Odin (not TWRP Manager apk) and just wants to backup his Tab, I would say there is no root necessary for doing this.

2 Will the Installation of TWRP with Odin trip Knox already ?

3 What is necessary for TWRP restore ... I guess root...

yes it will trip knox, anything custom other than an added binary (su.bin) will trip knox. Root isn't needed to backup/restore a ROM outside of Android, just a custom recovery.

you con downgrade an older stock kernel w/out tripping knox ... but that's about all you can do. That said, I'd love to know if anyone has tried king, or towelroot. I'm too chicken. But towelroot DID work on our 8.4 tab pro (w/out tripping knox).

The thing is, is the tab pro exynos? I dont think towelroot works on exynos or some exynos devices

can't recall - but I thought it was the other way around - that towelroot (& kingo) won't work on snapdragon 's. I'll have to check to see what we got.
