phone model: SM-G900F (International/ South Africa)
Manufacturing date: 2014-07-27 (does this qualify as "< June2014"..since it's on the cusp?)
Build date: May 8 2014
Bootloader, Baseband & PDA Version:G900FOJV1ANE2
Build #: KOT49H.G900FXXU1ANE2 (G900FOJV1ANE2)
Also, On the very first day that I got the phone, I connected to wifi & it just automatically started updating itself and applications on it.. Would this behaviour potentially remove root if it happens again & if so, how do I stop it from happening again?
My last concern is about knox.. I read somewhere here that downgrading may trip knox and since its an 'eFuse', tripping it cannot be undone.. Does that mean that it
1. cannot be undone ever, OR,
2. cannot be undone unless you reload the official OS obtained from samfirmware?
I haven't yet found an 'exact match' to my phone on samfirmware.. there were a few close one's though.. I know its generally a good idea to keep a ROM of the current OS.. but what if one can't be found?!?
Thanks in advance for all the reading material & knowledge transfer
