I want to make it clear that I updated to android 4.3 officially.I have not rooted, not installed any custom recovery ..nothing !
So till now my phone status is fully offical .Warranty bit is 0 too.
Now I wish to root and i clearly know Knox bootloader will void the warranty.
But what I am trying to ask is do I have the knox secured bootlooder ? or a knox free bootloader ?
Because I only see the warranty bit and there is no mention of knox in download mode.
This is an image from 19505. There is a mention of knox. But look at the image in my first post - knox is not mentioned in download mode.
If it is not a knox secured bootloader , I only need to worry about the binary counter .And According to this thread , flashing pre rooted rom will not increase binary counter.
Sorry if am making all this confusing !
