It has been said at least 9 times in this thread. Nobody reads threads anymore? Just the first and last post.

I would be very surprised that KingRoot app in android phone /tab trips Knox. I have used it twice on same tab and Knox remains 0x0. Only the desktop version trips Knox because it install custom recovery.

Did you use the app or desktop version?

Apologies for the confusion. It was the Towelroot app. I probably borked it myself when I went from a CM ROM to stock and back.

2.- Downloaded Odin, the Samsung USB Drivers.
3.- Powered off tablet, then pressed Home + Volume Down + Power, then Volume Up, and plugged in the USB cable after that.
4.- Loaded Odin, clicked on AP, loaded the TR Rootable Kernel from first post.
5.- Everything went smoothly, checked the tablet: same firmware and same Kernel version 3.4.0 but way older (from April 2014).
6.- Went to towelroot.com, downloaded APK, executed it, everything ok, rebooted tablet and it's rooted. Installed SuperSU, disabled Knox (and I have no issues whatsoever).
7.- Repeated steps 3 and 4 but using stormygal's AOC1 Kernel pack found in this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=302
8.- Rebooted, still rooted with current firmware and current kernel version.

Thanks to everyone who posted in this thread. I read every post and I'm pretty sure every single one was useful.

Thanks for pulling this together! It was a good summary of the most important parts of the 30+ pages I read this morning!

Perhaps some of this information could be incorporated into the original post to reduce the number of repeat questions being asked here. If we threw in the new information about KingRoot for the 10.1, it might slow to a trickle (or am I being too optimistic?).

A few details to add:

1) It might be worth noting that the above instructions work for Odin3 v.3.09. I understand that the nomenclature of the "AP" tab may be different in older versions (many of which are still out there), so that could confuse an inexperienced user. It also might be worth mentioning which other boxes to check (Auto Reboot / Reset Time) and leave unchecked.

2) I did a few things differently in step 6. I did not reboot after running TowelRoot. I did let SuperSU update itself upon installation (which you may have as well), but did not let it stop Knox (which some suggested can lead to problems). So far I haven't had any issues, but I'll report back if that changes.

3) Is it necessary to install a version of BusyBox to gain much of the functionality of root? I did so at the behest of Root Checker Pro. If so, perhaps that can be added to this "canonical" list of steps.

4) I was interested to see that not only did the Knox flag not trip, but my system still shows as "Official" in Settings / General / About device / Status / Device status. I used TowelRoot on my GS3, and while the Knox flag did not trip, it shows as "Custom". I don't know if that has anything to do with disabling Knox or not, but for now this seems as close to perfect as I can imagine.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed pieces of this approach! These tablets may not be super popular, but they're an incredible buy right now, and the freedom that rooting provides makes them that much sweeter!
