Default Qns on ROMs

Hi Guys,

My SM-9005 kitkat 4.4.2 kernel 3.4.0-1703205 baseband N9005DXUENE3 was rooted with Towelroot and I've checked with rootchecker, it says that I have root access. However in my phone's download page my system status remain as "official" instead of "custom". Is my device rooted properly? or Is this normal?

1) How to install custom recovery compatible with my device?
2) Currently my Knox remain as 0x0, will the process of installing a custom ROM trip Knox by any chance?
3) Are launchers only compatible with stock ROMs and not custom ROMs?
4) Currently what are the top Stock & Custom ROMs compatible with my device? (If I'm focusing more on games,performance, batt life and very low usage of S pen).

Thanks in advance!

Search before you ask for help. All these have been answered many times in this very forum.

Official or custom system status has nothing to do with rooting.

Find custom recovery from development section and flash it with Odin.

Custom ROM does not trip KNOX, but flashing custom recovery and/or kernel will.

What launchers you have in mind? Stock TouchWiz ones might only work on stock(-based) ROMs. Third-party launchers should work on all ROMs, though exceptions can occur.

There is no best ROM. Try different ROMs ones, see yourself what is best. A ROM may be best for one, worst for other.

Also - If you don't care about the journey of Android ROMs, you are not supposed to be here.

Hey mate! That's the advantage of towelroot. You are rooted without tripping knox warranty or changing the status to custom. In other words, you could still get OTA updates when it's available eventhough you're rooted

Towelroot. Developed by geohot. The badass guy who developed jailbreaking in ios.

Download / Install the apk
Click the "make it rain" button
You are rooted!
Check knox still 0x0. Status still samsung official means u cn still get ota updates.

Cheers.
