Default Quick question

If the efuse/flash counter is tripped will that disable or render the encryption on the bootloader is less for a custom recovery to be installed on the nc1 and kit kat builds?

No. Even with tripped Knox, you still can't install custom bootloader other than safestrap.

Knox-dependent security app functions won't work with Knox fuse tripped, otherwise, users wouldn't notice a difference, other than the triangle shown at boot (removable with triangle-away app).
