Man.... you already tripped Knox. What's the worse that can happen?

I've bought a (almost) new i9305 yesterday. In less than 1 hour, i tripped knox, increased the flash count to 6, flashed Philz, flashed CM11.... AND FEEL HAPPY ABOUT IT

If this ****in' thing brakes and i need warranty, i'll find a way to fry the mainboard to the point of making knox pointless

nice one man....did the same...but after 1 month..

flash whatever you like....you will always be able to enter download and flash stock if god knows something happens....
CSC should be the one of your current carrier...

Something else? : start searching for what ROM you like and flash it...(but read instructions carefully).

im just worried about fooking my phone up, cuz the last phone I modded was an ZTE blade. if you've ever modded one there so easy, if you fook them up they was easy to fix. I kind of knew how to sort it out from boot loops and soft bricks did it a few times. I was on a flashing frenzy as it was my first time flashing.

I just want to know what I can flash safly and what I cant

and thank you all for you replys

Unless you go away to crazy and flashing PIT files (change partition layout) or wrong bootloaders (which Knox shouldn't let you), there's almost nothing you can do to perma-brick the device.

Worse comes to worse, you can get into download mode, flash a stock rom via Odin, and start over.

If your knox is tripped, find a way to get root and a custom recovery. Ignore flash count, it's just for show... but you can use triangle away to reset.
After that... Omni... CM... Slim... Carbon... Custom stocks... your choice

thanks you have put my mind at rest. i would never mess around with something like the PIT i remember reading you only do that if you realy need to eg really screwed things up and then really you shouldnt
