Default [Q] Firmware upgrade after towelroot done

Knox shows 0x0 In future when I have to update firmware through official OTA update I won't be able to do that since it writes that system is modified. Any thoughts?

Upgrade FW with Knox 0x1 is possible. Try hard reset Or flash via Odin.

It doesn´t trip Knox. But I cannot promise you (Knox is very strange thing )
