How to root Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 SM-T325 on Android 4.4.2 [Guide]

Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 [1]People enjoy becoming the root user on the Android operating system because it puts them in control over what is installed and what isn’t installed. The original idea behind Google not wanting to take any chances with allowing root access to the internal file system is fair enough, but sadly it is then exploited by phone carrier networks and manufacturers who then take advantage of the prison the root file system is in. They do this by installing their stock apps in the system partition where people cannot get access to without root access which means you have no choice but to leave them on there until flashing something like the CF-Auto-Root tool by Chainfire.

Chainfire is the guy who has created CF-Auto-Root—a one-click rooting tool for mainly Samsung devices—that installs and enables SuperSU. The SuperSU can allow any app that you choose to have root access. It does this by prompting the display with a message after you have installed an app that required root access before it can run and then it is up to you whether you grant that app root access or whether you do not.

Experienced Android users can dabble in things like installing the Xposed Installer [2] which is about as close to experiencing a custom ROM as you will ever get without actually having to install a custom ROM at all. Xposed comes with heaps of modules that people can install, and these modules allow for maximum tweaking of the user interface, including features and design.
