Default Uninstall knox ?

So I managed to root my phone and disable knox through supersu. After that I froze it using titanium backup but I was wondering if it is safe to fully uninstall it ?
Thanks

Hi
Can you tell us how you gained root access? My device was rooted in 4.1.2 version and after installing 4.3, I started getting error "Unauthorized access to a secured area has been blocked. Tap to learn more." If I use SuperU (which was installed during 4.1.2), it asks me to manually re-root.

I tried going through steps mentioned in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2538991 but didnt work.

Can you give link to the software and mention the steps to remove Knox or regain root access?

Help would be appreciated.

Yeah he's right. I used this method too. Just remember to update supersu after doing it.

I used method one from that thread. The CF auto root method. Just remember to update supersu afterwards. It'll ask you if you want to disable knox when you open it up after updating.

Perfect!! it worked for me in less than 13sec!!
At first, device took some time to recognise the network, so I was a bit afraid but after 2-3 mins, i could make calls.

I had to install SuperSU separately, and Just as Florad77 mentioned, it disabled KNOX.

Thanks a lot to both of you...
