Question [Q] How To setup multi user mode in sm-t231

Bought Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 SM-T231 variant it comes with a Kitkat 4.4.2 out f the box .

Does any one know how to set MULTI-USER mode ? me and my brother use the same tab for gaming so with this we can have 2 gaming profiles.
I remember seeing this option in jelly bean. Im still using stock rom unrooted.

Pls help

mine too.
It looks like the tab's maximum user has been set to 1. I managed to solve this by entering this in the terminal or adb

su
setprop fw.max_users <number of maximum user you want>

but you will need root in order to do it.
Hope it helps sorry for my english

Use VRoot if you can. Here's a thread details for the SM-T230NU, somewhere in there is mention of your model but I believe your specific model is unrootable.

Download terminal emulator from playstore
Then type

Su
(You must allow the terminal emulator to obtain root access)
After that type
setprop fw.max_users 8 (this will set the system's maximum user to 8, you can change to whatever you want)
And voila!
Go to settings-general and you can see the user tab there
Just tell me if you have any problem
