[Q] Will flashing stock firmware from another region trip Knox?
I have ordered one of these Note 10.1 2014 tablets and have a few noobish questions.
1) From the shipping tracking info, it's coming out of Hong Kong, so I assume most likely it will have the Hong Kong stock firmware. Since I might be interchanging 2 or 3 European languages when I'm using the tablet, I'll probably flash one of the latest UK stock firmwares from sammobile. Would flashing a stock firmware from another region trip the Knox efuse/counter?
2) At this point, I've read somewhere on the forums that I should do a factory reset to affect the changes in the language set. Is this down in download (volume down) or recovery (volume up) mode? And doing this won't affect the Knox counter either, right?
3) I also plan on rooting the tablet using the URDLV method.
4) And lastly, I've heard of freezing Knox apps using Titanium Backup (which I have). What happens if I don't freeze them? And if I should freeze them, which apps should be frozen?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
