In odin instead of a button that says PDA. I get a button that says AP.


EDIT: Found it. It says on the firmware dl that ap and pda are the same thing.

finally ran ODIN (The firmware dl took about three hours as I have super slow internet) and it worked! Surprisingly it didn't end up wiping my device either.

Thank you so much for the help!

Safest way to root would be to Odin a custom recovery then flash SuperSu zip file. It is much safer than the old CFautoroot way.

Wouldn't this trip Knox?

I would think the Safest way to root would involve not using Odin. Ie. Towelroot (as applicable to your device, at this time)

CF-Auto already tripped KNOX. It shows a 1 when I boot to recovery. Does TowelRoot work for SM-P600's?

Do you know any good detailed tutorials on flashing a recovery? I'm trying to be super cautious and not kill my device. I about had a heart attack last night when it soft bricked.
