Hello guys. I'm new here and I want to know if TR by Geohot (Thanks for the hard work) is working fine on my SGS5 with original unbranded firmware (4.4.2): G900FXXU1ANG2_G900FROM1ANG2_G900FXXU1ANG2_ROM ???

I have my device from ~ 2 months ago and is not rooted

I want to root my phone with TR, but I want to know if I can back to unroot using my original firmware downloaded from SamMobile, using Odin 3.09;
I verify my device firmware using Phone INFO+ and it show me the following informations:

AP: G600FXXU1ANG2
CP: G600FXXU1ANG2
CSC: G900FROM1ANG2

About Device it show me:
3.4.0-2089850

Status:
SEPF_SM-G900F_4.4.2_0018
Thu Jul 3 14:10:41 2014

I'm not expert, but I want to test my device using root access without trip my KNOX to 0x1.
In comparation with ChainFire root, many members are very dissatisfied because this method trip de KNOX

I don't care about my phone applications, because I have backed up all to my cluoud account.
Beside I reading on another big forum, which SGS5 will get new firmware Android L after 2-3 months....

If someone can read this post, please let me know, because I don't want to trip my KNOX and please let me know if this method is working fine using TR to root, and revert back with ODIN using my original unbranded firmware, posted above ?

My best regards, IM

if you did good, you have

I will lose the root if I will flash with Odin PC, I don't care, but I don't want to downgrade to previous firmware. I want to root my phone on this firmware posted above.
I don't care if I will lose the root, because next time when I rooting again with TR I want to know if the KNOW remain to 0x0.

I want to test some applications with root applied, then I want to unroot again, reinstalling the actual firmware using Odin PC.

My question is if the KNOX allways remain to 0x0 when I do this procedures or not ? (rooting with TR on actual firmware, then revert to unroot using Odin PC, after some days or months I want to root again with TR, then to revert using Odin PC )

Read my the last question again. I don't want to downgrade. Just i want to know if i can to root the actual firmware version from my phone (Jul 03 2014), read the above informations, then to revert back to unroot using Odin PC , writing the complete firmware (more than 2 gb size of tar.md5 file) downloaded from SamMobile, without trip my KNOX to 0x1.

I read on other places some discussions and i think this is possible.
I want to get a proper answer from some experts of you guys.

Thanks in advance.
