It unfortunatly came with knox... now what if i dont care to trip knox... will having knox effect the way i glash roms... or can i even flash roms? [Ive searched everywhere for my answer and all i get is mixed answers...] some say i cant flash with knox... others are talking in threads like they tripped knox and flashing roms... HELP PLEASE... thanks in advanceee!
btw from all the reading i ha e done it seems that a "Tripped knox counter" only affects the ppl sending it thru repair and not warrenty... please if someone can shed light on this... again... thanks in advance!

Knox doesn't prevent you from rooting or flashing ROM.

Thanks but what about warranty rejecting the phone because of Knox or is it only for repair by the way I'm in New Jersey

Your warrenty (The phone no longer powers on, send me a new one) is voided by tripping Knox.

Your insurance (The $9 a month you may or may not pay for damage or loss) is not voided.

Please search next time. There are literally 30 threads asking this exact question. Searching avoids filling up the forum with repeated questions, which makes finding unique questions more difficult.

The warranty is not voided if you void Knox I did and I was running custom u sent mine in after it broke and they sent me a new one because it was still under warranty

Let me rephrase that...

Tripping knox is SUPPOSED to void your warrenty. Many people are finding that Samsung/T Mobile aren't properly checking the Knox status with a warrenty claim and are honoring the warrenties anyway. But it's not a guarentee.

I hear that tmobile doesn't care much seems it's more of a Samsung thing
