Did you just buy yourself the WiFi variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0? If so, you might want to root it. What rooting your device does is open the access to system files on your device, which in turn, lets you install root-requiring apps on your device.
These root apps bring extra cool features that aren’t normally found in the regular apps. If you’ve made your mind to root your device for this very specific reason, here’s how you can do that:

1. A computer is not required to do this tutorial. You can get the app installed directly on the device.
2. This procedure is only for the SM-P350 variant of the device.
3. Download KingRoot app to your computer.
