Mate, what if one doesn't has SuperSU Pro?

Scroll all the way down in settings and you'll find the option to Enable Pro
You don't need to buy the key for this [emoji1]

Here's quote from the app description..

The Pro version additionally offers:
- OTA survival mode (no guarantees)
- Full color-coded command content logging (input/output/error)
- Per-app logging configuration
- Per-app user override
- Grant/deny root to an app for a set amount of time
- PIN protection
- Per-app PIN protection
- Adjust auto-deny countdown
Skip typing - hit instead..

You can enable pro even if you didn't purchase it.
But of course supporting the developer by buying the appName:  uploadfromtaptalk1406933474527.jpg

So, basically why we're all going back to previous firmware is because the method the towel root uses is patched in the updated firmware (for most regions) starting June 3rd.
So you'd want to go back to a previous firmware before June. You could go back to the N9005XXUENC2 from April you had, do the towel root etc and then upgrade through mobile Odin.

I understand this..
But, what I wanna know is that, should I not use the BTU from April (N9005XXUEND3) because I now have the BTU from June (N9005OXAFNF4)?
Vodafone UK didn't come up with the latest update for their phones yet you see.

Mate, I'm at it as I type..

I am getting this message-
Samsung KONX has been detected. This might limit root capabilities and cause annoying popups. Try to disable KNOX ?

what should I do? Will clicking Yes knock KNOX down to 0x1 ?




EDIT-it doesn't
