Default How do I remove Custom System Status and Root and Stay on Knox 0x0?

As the title says I would like to revert back to Official Status, remove root and stay on Knox 0x0
I have 4.3 version, Knox 0x0, and I have reset to factory defaults and I do not have root now.

No. False. Knox flag DOES NOT mean you're not rooted if it's 0x0.

The only times this is true is if root using a method that rewrites your recovery, such as CF-Auto-Root.

The only things that trip knox are unsigned recoveries (ANY custom recovery) and custom kernels (ANY custom kernel).

Ohh..tnx for correcting me.!But I think the problem is status of device. As knox is 00 there is no problem.knox is not triggered. Flashing a stock firmware changes the status custom to official. Please correct me if I am understanding wrong!

Correct. Flashing a full stock firmware AFTER a factory reset and wipe should return to official status, officially.
