Go to recovery and erase the data on the tab then start it up and connect it to wifi *DO NOT PROCEED* then connect the tab to pc and use the frp bypass tool (step 3) then download quick shortcut manager app and search for setup
Run the app which says android setup this will start up ur tab however the knox pop up will come constantly and ask you to restart *DO NOT RESTART* just swipe down and click on settings, u need to turn on OEM unlocking as fast as possible because the pop up will keep on coming over and over, once u r able to unlock the bootloader from within the software you will be good to go ahead with flashing the patched firmware

The bypass fails.
I have windows security turned off all virus protections off no anti virus softwares.
Disabled driver signatures. Samsung usb drivers installed.still the bypass event fails.

Have u disabled driver signature from within windows or just clicked the button on the program, cause the button does not do anything on windows 8+

yeh i did from advanced startup.Maybe its version.What version exactly did u flashed?
I am currently running the latest Android 12 firmware but that has nothing to do with the bypass process it does not work sometime out of the 9 tabs I have fixed it has happened to me twice
I don't know what causes it but it did work for me when I tried again later on

Hello, @jingping, @bhanu1232, @venxtreme, @Insomniac05 & @equinoks. Boys have you tried this method for phone too? (Galaxy A03). I also wanted to remove those ****y restrictions and know. Please Guide Me!

I tried flashing the firmware but it didn't help me, I got knox back!
I only have access to the tablet but the process should be similar
Also flashing the rooted firmware does not automatically remove knox u need to use other programs like adb app control or something else to uninstall knox from ur device, rooting is just done to grant you the permission required for uninstalling system apps like knox

Yes it works fine and faced no issue till now.
Note: extract the AP from rom and pull the boot.img out, then patch the boot.img using magisk app and then archive only the boot.img with that AP file name and same extension.

If u want to use gpay I won't suggest u use the rooting method I'll rather suggest u to go for the non root method, while that method does not remove knox completely it is however used to disable knox allowing u to remove the security measures

    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

    No, Unlock tool for some specific devices have been successfully to change binaries like changing KG status, very similar to MDM system since when devices bought using EMI options fails to pay companies trigger that. I've seen Unlock tool work not scam.
