I updated my phone today and I was able to root it an disable KNOX.

I used CF-Autoroot http://autoroot.chainfire.eu/ and it worked flawlessly and when I was updating the binary I got the option to disable KNOX.

Root Instruction:
1. Flash with Odin
2. Add a google account incase it has not been setup yet.
3. Install SuperSU from Market.
4. Open it and it wil ask you to update binary.

Respect to the developer.

Futhermore, I got CWM with one of the methods I was using when on JB 4.1.2

PLS NOTE: You will lose warranty if phone is rooted at this time. If you will like to keep your warranty with no possibility to go back to an older android version, please AVOID rooting your ROM and wait for custom ROM with KNOX disabled

Cheers,

But.. I don't know whether to use the i9305 or I9305T files :/

My device is I9305T but has been running I9305 FW (and probably bootloaders) for a while...

For those who need some more links/instructions:

Backup your data, SMS, settings - and make sure you got an IMEI backup
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1946915

If you use Google's 2-Step Verification, make sure you can receive the SMS via a 2nd phone or have a backup option like landline or authenticator app.

I removed my SD card (just in case) and did a full system wipe just to get rid of everything I did to my system over the last year:
Hold down volume up, home and power buttons, when screen turns on, leave these buttons, do the full system wipe. (Don't think this is really necessary though.)

Install 4.3 on your i9305
http://www.androidegis.com/how-to/in...-s3-lte-i9305/

Switch the phone off after first book (at SIM PIN prompt).

Get CF-Auto-Root and install it
EDIT: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1957273

Now after your phone booted you can run the Samsung setup. Add your Google account.

Install SuperSU from the Play Store - not SuperUser
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....supersu&hl=en
Update the binary and disable KNOX

Enjoy

For me what worked, was installing PhilZ Touch (latest version), and using the built-in rooting function of the recovery. Then, installing SuperSU gave me perfect root.

Does anyone know if Koush's superuser app works in any way in this release? I would prefer to use an open-source superuser app.

Did you mean to link the [GT-I9505 + GT-I9505G] CF-Auto-Root page, or should we get the file from [GT-I930x/T/N][SHV-E210*][SHW-M440S] CF-Auto-Root?

Damn, sorry - that was my mistake. I just changed the link above - it should have been http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1957273 of cause. Thanks!

I don't understand if this method preserves the warranty.

No , it doesn't . By flashing CF-Root you will get Knox count 1 .

Uh. I think, at this point, that the best thing (for me) is to not update.

Update using Heimdall, and skip flashing tz.img and sboot.bin. Be aware that this will break WiFi until a custom kernel is released
