Default [ROOT KERNEL FOR TowelRoot] Tab Pro 8.4, 10.1

As you may be aware, GeoHotz has created an app to root an android device using a recently discovered exploit.
I tried it on my LTE Tab Pro 8.4 which had the latest firmware for my region "BTU" which is NB7,

It wouldn't work, but another XDA member @Inuit, said it worked for him with the DBT NE5 firmware he has on his device.

SO! I downloaded the DBT NE5 file, extracted the Kernel and repackaged it and flashed the Kernel on it's own. Then tried the root method.
I have now successfully rooted the device and kept Knox at a cool 0x0.

I chose to do things this way, as I wanted to keep my regions firmware and not that of another county.
So I still have my original firmware, but I am now using the newer Kernel, everything seems to be working fine but considering I only did this 15 minutes ago, I haven't had enough time to test. But connectivity is fine, battery levels fine etc...

UPDATE: Everything is fine for me, loaded Xposed modules, no adverse affects at all

I have attached the repackaged Kernel, all you need to do, is go into download mode and flash the file under the "AP" Tab in Odin 3.09.

Then install the TowelRoot app, which you can get from the links in the thread below:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2783157

Install the latest, SuperSU (again links in the above thread).

You should be rooted and Knox kept at a cool 0x0.

I have tested the this on my Device the T325 and another user tested the Kernel for the Wi-Fi version T320 and are working fine But!
You try at your own risk!

Hi RavenY2K3,

Thanks for your guide. May I know if Knox will be triggered if I install your attached Kernel via Odin?

As you can see in the screenshot, mine has not tripped, neither has anyone else's that I'm aware of on ANY Knox enabled device. What tab have you got?

Hi RavenY2K3,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I currently own a Tab pro 8.4 LTE. I am actually thinking of updating my Tab pro with the latest T325 Firmware from Germany via odin. I am currently on the firmware from Singapore ,2014 March, 4.4.2, T325XXU1ANBB. Do you know whether will knox be tripped if i flash the Germany firmware over the current Singapore firmware? Thanks for your assistance.

My Tab came from China going by the firmware that came with mine out of the box and I replaced it with the UK BTU firmware no problems, you have to wipe the device etc for the CSC to apply though.

Pretty certain you can get difficulties if the new ROM is older than the one installed, if it's number is greater than or equal to the currently installed firmware you should be fine.

All the above is for official firmware though, not custom creations.

Thumbs up SM-T320 With T320XXU1ANAI from Peru

I want to confirm that using the kernel posted in this thread I was able to root the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 using [TR] with the stock firmware T320XXU1ANAI

Of course Knox flag was not tripped.

Thanks!

No, once it's been triggered, that's it no going back. Unless someone figures out how to crack it.

one question left: what about an official OTA after flashing this modified kernel? will it work as it should?
