Now, I would like to test Imperium rom, but I am not sure what the heck I'm reading all about this knox and modems, and I would like to have knox untouched (0x0).

So, basically what I know now:
1. I have to flash new modem to run Imperium because 4.4.2 will not make a good use of 4.2.2 modem as far as I read somewhere
2. I have to flash Imperium which is "this manual compatible" in some way

The question is: will I trip knox with this new Imperium rom, or not? Will I have possibility to revert back to stock 4.2.2 when I decide to sell SGS4 or have a warranty repair?

PS. And if you can advice which modem, or modems (I still do not understand why there are two modems - one for phone, one for wifi, but as I read, wifi is somehow connected to LTE and I would like to update my LTE which doesnt work, but I fear I will trip knox again...)

Any guidance?

If you have old bootloader without Knox, why upload it?! Flash a Philz recovery and flash the normal Imperium ROM. This guide is only for who has the new bootloader with Knox counter. The last NON-HLOS (LTE modem) compatible with the old bootloader is the MH1

Okay then, so I should flash:
- Imperium v13.0 from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2706844 using TWRP
- XXUBMH1 from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2192025 using Odin on PC

and be happy owner of modded rom (which one first by the way)?

PS. As I said, I have now a XXUAMDE modem, only MH1 found is XXUBMH1 - is it not important that its not starting with XXUA prefix?

Use this recovery https://www.dropbox.com/s/4z9xzqmsxe...e.tar.md5?dl=0

KNOX 0X0 USERS: PAY ATTENTION. THIS RECOVERY IS ONLY FOR @krzych THAT DOESN'T HAVE THE KNOX COUNTER. PAY ATTENTION

The prefix isn't a problem

Will you plan to make a recovery so that roms can be backed up? Thanks
