[Q] SM-N900T Runing 4.4.2 Kit Kat. Can I root without trpping Knox flag?

Just picked up a new Note 3 and root is required to run an app that is critical to me.

I was just about to root and then call and cancel my insurance.. then I started noticing threads where people have claimed root on 4.4.2 without tripping the Knox flag.

This is a new phone, never before rooted. I do own Mobile Oden Pro and Triangle away and am willing to purchase other apps if needed.

Either way this phone will be rooted but I would like to keep my insurance warranty if possible.


Thanks

Edit.. custom recovery would be an added bonus not is not needed.

If your baseband is NB4 or NE6 you can use "Towelroot" for rooting
otherwise if your baseband is NF1 or NF4 Towelroot will not work.

Towelroot will not trip knox.

If you flash any custom recovery knox will get triggered
but so far no one lost their warranty due to triggering knox.

Without custom recovery you will not be able to flash any
custom roms.

Good luck!

You can use your insurance even with knox tripping. It only voids your samsung warranty, not your insurance. Just an fyi.
