So there is a nice chance that it works on tab4 too
Also some users reported it working.

This is untested so try on ur own risk
Hope it works

I did this today on my Tab 4 8.0 SM-T330NU and it worked and it did not trip the KNOX counter!

Did you get a Google warning when trying to install? About bypassing android security?

Yes I did and I ignored it. Towelroot does in fact bypass Android security that's how it works.

How does a person check if Knox tripped?

Confirm it is not tripped etc.

There may be other ways but what I did was boot into the bootloader and saw that it said "KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 00" If it says "KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 01" that means you've tripped KNOX.
