I know its only been a day since its been released, but does anyone know if it will be possible to still root 4.4.2 without tripping KNOX? And yes I know I can just trip KNOX, but I own my phone and when I go to sell it, I want KNOX still at 0x0 since some people actually need it for their jobs. Thanks in advance.

Well, KNOX will be tripped regardless if rooting, custom kernel, or custom recovery.

Don't think he meant to 4.4.2. Think he was just saying it had been done for 4.3
