Default (Q) Return to full stock

Hi guys,

I was initially on URDLV MI7 & I updated to MJ7 via Mobile odin pro v3.85.

Currently, I am on MJ7 with MI7 bootloader. Knox still 0x0-Good.

So my Q's now is how do I unroot and return fully to stock without triggering Knox.

Thx.

There are some conflicting posts regarding this around the forum, me personally I would just unroot via the SU app, or you could just reflash stock firmware via ODIN - ( flashing stock back apparently does NOT trigger KNOX) - However I have tried neither of these as I am already 0x1, so not sure which actually works.

Yep, I'd flash Terlstra rom using PC ODIN. Should unroot and you should be able too as you are still on MI7 bootloaders...

That's a custom rom which would trigger knox.

I believe he was referring to Telstra stock ROM (AU carrier?) - I assume poster thinks/thought you are in AU?

OK so you have MI7 bootloader and running MJ7 build?

IN order to keep MI7 you can't flash the Stock ROM MJ7 fw, as it will upgrade the bootloader. (unless you use ODIN Mobile)

If you want to flash back totally stock, unroot via SuperSU /Flash the stock MJ7 fw via ODIN (which will also upgrade the bootloader) and it shouldn't trip KNOX. There's a few threads around with conflicting reports on which does and does not trip KNOX, so have a read then take the gamble if you choose too.

I updated via KIES to MJ7 from rooted MJ6 and it was all fine But I had tripped KNOX previously when messing around.

Let us know how you get on and which method you choose.
