Hello,
Is it profitable to hard brick Knox 0x1 smartphone to get him on warranty? Or should I just give him with 0x1 status?
Here are the problems:
1) Not charging (even if replace Micro USB Flex - MB problem)
2) GSM Modem and sound problem after update to newer 4.4 KK - still can't find solution
3) Not working camera module (had two replacement pieces, one didn't change anything, second gave me my rear camera, but I still couldn't use the front one.. When I was changing to front in camera app it was crashing and freezing.

Thank you.

Thank you.

So, you have modified both, software (KNOX) and hardware (self-made camera replacement), and NOW you are looking for warranty?

Beside ethical issues related with such, I'd suppose that your phone would be investigated on arrival, and traces of mechanical hardware replacement operation would be easy to spot by service guys...

I tried both replacements but I have changed it back to stock hardware parts. And. I also think that they'll see my interference.. :/
