U probably just disabled Knox rather than removing it complete so it got enabled back once u reset ur tab
Pretty much do the entire thing again and then this time around use adb to remove Knox completely from the tab
yeah did it again and its up again now installed adb app control , but I am confused as to what to remove nothing comes up after searching for knox

You can try it though I would suggest you to try the non root method first just to see that the frp works or not if it does you are clear to go for this

    could anyone build it? or do you know how to?
    Yeah someone can build it if they want to but considering it's a mediatek device and a tablet to top that the chances of there being a custom rom is kinda low so the recovery won't really matter much

    Firstly i would like to thank you for providing this awesome working guide for us to root and debloat all knox stuff successfully. It works perfectly. Although with utmost respect i would like to suggest you to make the guide a bit short and remove unnecessary steps to avoid confusions etc.

    With @Insomniac05 great help and my hours of hit and trail i managed to successfully flash magisk and remove all knox app and now enjoy the device. If anyone faces any issues, i am always ready to help. My TG : @fastboot_boot_life
