Default Getting back into things

I've been out of the android scene for what seems like an eternity ( 2009 ). I recently changed jobs and I now am the proud owner of a Sprint Note 3. I am looking for help on deciding "where to go" from here, other than just rooting the phone

Suggestions on roms?

You can flash the radio now?

Tripping Knox worth it?

Check out my XDA post on Debloating your device. Here is the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2770729 this will give some insight on what apps to remove/freeze, to speed up the phone and increase battery life.

Knox is an extra layer of containerized security between your phone and other devices for the transfer of data. That's the official definition, actually its written by the NSA for Samsung. Can you say SPYWARE? This info is right off the Samsung website.

I run 4.4.2 NC5, stock, rooted, with Philz custom recovery. I disabled and removed KNOX, and flashed Philz recovery ( which voided my warranty the second day I owned the device ). They are working on a way the reset KNOX warranty counter.

OK, if you root your phone with Towelroot it will NOT trip the KNOX warranty counter. Here is the link https://towelroot.com/ this will give you the ability to run certain apps like WiFi Tether Router that needs root.

Now, if you flash a custom recovery ( highly recommended and needed if want to flash other roms ) here is the link to PhilZ CWM recovery http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2201860 I would use hltespr version 6.12.9 .tar this is the latest Sprint version. This will definitely trip the KNOX warranty counter. But think about, did you root your phones in the past? I have, and Sprint never gave me a problem with the warranty.

The Note 3 is an awesome device !!! Enjoy !!!
