I am currently running a custom ROM with CWM as my recovery. I installed the custom ROM back when my stock ROM was on 4.2.2 so Knox shouldn't be on my phone. To restore my phone back to the original ROM and recovery, do I just flash using Odin? Can I flash the newer 4.4 ROM with Odin without problems?
Hi Mate ,
Here is just fine.
If you have a 4.2.2 bootloader you have a knox free bootloader
Flash with Odin a Stock rom 4.2.2 and still keep the old bootloader
Flash with Odin a Stock rom 4.4.2 rom BUT you will flash the new bootloader
also ( knox enable)
Until this point your warranty is still fine,
If you flash with Odin a 4.4.2 rom and later decide to root ( I9505 can use towelroot and not trip warranty) , install CWM or a custom rom you will trip your knox
