If you find out let me know I would love to tinker and help with this, I am only just starting to learn Java programming.

btw, I installed this:

via odin and got back to pre-update and used towelroot again... ROOTED!..

screw updates! they suck I swear I never gain functionality they just patch root methods!

I'm glad you found a way to downgrade. do you think you could reup that 4.4.2 to an easier location? i would like to update and play with rooting now that i know i can easily go back to stock

I can confirm that root still works fine on the latest September update for the SM-T530NU. i did everything with odin. first i grabbed the stock april update odin flashable file along with the september update. i installed the new update and root was killed. i flashed the april update boot.img over the new update boot.img with odin. i reran towelroot and it rooted. i then flashed the boot.img back from the september update and all was good. newest update from samsung with working root. took me all of 10 minutes to do. holler if you need a hand
