Actually, I just want to clarify just a bit. I missed the part of you still being on G1 (was thinking of another post). Your best bet would be to do what I just finished doing myself. Update to K1 (via OTA or Odin if you want to go that route) -> in Odin flash the rootable kernel (from the front page) -> root with Towelroot -> update SuperSU (it will automatically prompt you for this after rooting - select cancel or never when it asks to disable knox) -> check for root with Root Checker (from Play store) -> in Odin flash the K1 KERNEL ONLY. Those are the main steps. Holler if you have more questions.
i just recently purchased a Tab Pro 8.4 and i'm exploring what options are available. i am familiar with rooting, installing recoveries, and flashing custom roms. however, i'm not familiar with knox. the last device i had that had an unlocked bootloader was a galaxy s3 so i had no worries when it came to knox. now i have an ATT note 3 with a locked bootloader and can only use safestrap, so again no real custom roms so no knox issues.
my T320 is currently on the NK1 and i understand i need to revert to a previous kernel, use TR and update SU, then flash back to NK1. but if i want to install CWM/TWRP and go with a custom rom like CM11/12 will i trip the knox counter? i dont really care either way but the wife is pissed that i'm already looking at flashing it and its only 2 days old.
any replies would be appreciated. thanks
thanks for the reply. i understand what knox does but have never had to worry about tripping it because on my note 3 i can only use safestrap roms. would installing a custom rom like cm11 trip knox on the T320? ideally i'd like to go to an AOSP style rom but the wife is worried about void warranty so quickly.
I did the same recently for T320XXU1BNI1_T320OXA1BNI1_BTU release, and have attached the original kernel from that firmware for those who wish to root that one as well.
Steps are the same as before.
- Flash rootable kernel from page #1
- Reboot, & root with towelroot, install supersu etc.. (do not work around knox, or disable knox, read the whole topic..)
- Flash back the attached kernel.
THE ATTACHED KERNEL IS ONLY FOR T320XXU1BNI1_T320OXA1BNI1_BTU release!
