Default Custom recovery and KNOX 0X0 ??

Now that we have Root without KNOX problems.. Will it ever be possible to flash custom Recovery / Roms too... And still have KNOX 0x0 ?

Safestrap is only for ATT and Verizon devices afaik, it probably does not work on the G900F.

Not atm, KNOX is impossible to hack as security is iron clad

Safestrap creates virtual partitions afaik and writes data on those, look here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2793891 for more info.

Sure. Anyone who says otherwise is exercising a certain failure of imagination.

That however doesn't mean that it is easy. And you certainly can't put a fixed time frame on it. A few weeks ago we couldn't root the locked bootloaders on a Verizon or ATT phone. Then Pinkie Pie discovered the CVE-2014-3153 vulnerability and Geohot developed the towel root exploit on that doorstep.

And if you haven't been following the forums here recently we've seen some exciting work and success in not only downgrading a device from Kitkat to Jellybean but also undoing the Knox flag in the process. Something that Samsung told us was impossible. But now we find that Samsung was playing fast and loose with the truth again. They told us that the Knox qfuse was a permanent and irreversible OTP. But it turns out that qfuses, or some of the qfuses at least can actually be reset if we are creative.

Samsung probably does this to make their own code development easier. Certainly it's easier for them to reset a Knox flag than have to replace a motherboard when factory refurbishing devices. The lesson in all of this is to take pronouncements that something is impossible with a grain of salt. All is not always as it seems. Yes the day will come when we can flash a custom recovery or kernel and still have a 0x0 Knox flag.
