Default Tab 3 8 official kikat update (T310) + root instrucions

http://www.android.gs/galaxy-tab-3-8...-installation/

Warning!!!
Locked boot-loader, once you flash this update you cant downgrade (at Present)

Rom has no knox counter ( warranty Bit) or binary counter.
Rom used to downgrades was T310XXUAMF1_T310OXXAMF1_HOME.tar

Another safe way of trying this rom without fear, is flashing it with mobile odin,mobile odin does not flash boot-loaders so you are safe to downgrade etc.
you may find that you WiFi does not work when rom flashed with mobile odin, that means that the older boot loader is not compatible with the new rom.


Update 1

Once You flash the rom the device will reboot several times, because my previous rom was customized i had to perform a hard reset.

this rom has some kind of KNOX according to superuser

The rom also adds a new entry to download mode AP SWREV: A1

How to root?

download Cf-auto-root from here and flash it via odin then go to google play and install superuser from chainfire, launch it and update normally.

UPDATE 2...
Rom has a watered down version of knox but no common KNOX entrie in download mode.

Q:Can i install a custom recovery is this rom?
A: YES.

what we really want to know is does this update have the locked bootloader? If so, then you may possibly forever be stuck with touchwiz and stock based ROMs..
Days of open internet are almost over as the biggies look for more revenue streaming from your wallet..Soon the internet will be a shell of its current self. With the government wanting their taxes and the big ISPs planning to charge extra for access to specific content (like facebook) and throttle your speed.

Yes you could but be cautioned, that could lead to a bricked device. I'm not sure what a safe test would be.

A: YES.
did you brick your device in the process or did it just fail flashing & error out, or did it work but only flash 4.2 system leaving new bootloader intact?

so with this finding, just to be clear on this, no custom roms can be used for those who upgraded with new bootloader?

would it be possible to restore 4.2 rom backup of only system.img in custom recovery or will it not boot?

sorry for lots of q's
