So I've seen it done on a Verizon and AT&T Models, but not on a TMobile and i have some questions,
Will it work on my device? (Given my specs below)
Will this brick my device?
Will it trigger Knox?
Just Root and SuperUser Right? No Custom Roms?
How much trust should i put into this developer?

SM-G900T
4.4.2
Kernel : May 23 2014
Security: Release 3
> Any other things i should tell about my device, to help you, help me?

(I Already know the steps to use TowelRoot)

That is how I rooted my phone back with the original software.
If you are running the newest stock version you will need to downgrade first.
Newer kernels have patched the exploit used by towelroot.
