I'll try to recap for clarifying:Here is an unexpected suprise...
If you happen to flash cf-auto-root after flashing a custom recovery the device reverts back to official status:good:
Clearly samsung did not want their developers to waste much time in the firmware
One possible minimal issue is offline charging will always reboot to normal mode.just wanted to clarify an earlier post i made, going back to 4.2 is possible if you have a backup of it in twrp or other recovery, i just restored a 4.2 system & boot image and everything works as normal, even goes back to 4.2 kernel, at least there is minimal issue with this release, full knox would have been a real headache

Yes, but the custom recovery gets replaced by the one from cf-root that seems to be a officiant one.I'll try to recap for clarifying:
1. We can flash the stock 4.4.2 ROM through Odin
2. Now we can flash a custom recovery (TWRP_T31x_r3.tar)
3. We can finally flash cf-auto-root.
With this 3 steps we will have a TAB3 8.0 with stock 4.4.2, rooted, with custom recovery and official knox status, right?

Anyone interested on this in their tablet?:laugh::laugh::laugh:
Ported Quick connect and s finder on tab 3 8.
Samsung actually did not include the feature in the kitkat update , in a device that actually has the hardware for it! Up yours SAMSUNG!
@HavokbyName I found:
lpcharge mean low power charging. Why no androidboot.mode there? CM kernel still compatible to the old bootloader https://github.com/kumajaya/android...mmit/97e454051b3364deafcc47a0e76a3a4fae29c356 but for the new bootloader, maybe init process need to be changed.
I am not much into rooting so i needed a bit of help.
I was able to flash the kitkat rom manually.
now i want to root, so i wanted to ask you which version of odin should i use to flash cf auto root file and which all boxes should be ticked in odin.
if u could please give me a link of the correct odin version, that would be a great help. And also tell which boxes to tick in odin.
Thanks a lot
Yea! We need the jb video player! ☺☺☺
Can anyone get it for us?
I tried every player but the jb video player stands out of them all.
Faria? Anyone? Unfortunately I'm not a developer.?
And if someone can get it for us then everyone gains benefit from it.
Please help us in this regard. ☺
I've managed to get hold of the Video Player from JellyBean if anyone wants to have a go at trying to install it in KitKat.
Please let us know how it goes, and how you managed to achieve it.
