How to root Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 SM-T320 on Android 4.4.2 [Guide]

Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 SM-T320 [1]The Google Play Store is home to millions of apps that can be installed on the Android operating system that runs on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet. Many of those apps do not run unless it can get access to the root file system. Some apps are powerful enough to do amazing things but without access to the root file system, they do not have enough power to do what they need to do. Google had no intention of taking away the ability for these apps to run because they did not like the apps bur rather because the danger people can be in if malware gets access to that same root file system.

Chainfire, the man behind the CF-Auto-Root tool found in this guide, has created a way that people can become the root user while still blocking off access to the root file system from malware. It does this by installing and enabling a thing called SuperSU [2] (also developed by Chainfire), and the SuperSU blocks everything—from the apps you wanted to install the malware we are all afraid of installing—and it only allows through what you tell it to let through. Once you have the acquired knowledge of what is malware and what isn’t, using a smartphone or tablet that runs Android with root access is as safe as using Android without it.
