    Hi. Thanks for the article. My tablet has T335DOU1BPE8. Your above says T335YDOU1BPEB.

    One digit different. My last digit is 8 (eight) and yours is B (bee).

    A Google search finds all sites that have this all show B (bee). I cannot find any site that has 8 (eight). Is this just a typo that all sites are simply copying or is there in fact two different builds one with 8 and one with B?

    Thanks for the help.

  4. Neil says

    Don’t worry it worked.

    Whether your above is meant to be a B or an 8…I tried it anyway and it worked. I was even able to disable Knox.

    Oh, and yes, I noticed my typo 🙂 I left out a “Y”…

    Thanks for the great tips.
