Phone [Q] A question about KNOX

So I'm recently getting into rooting again, and I had some questions about triggering KNOX, which I found in the device administrators section of settings when I updated my phone to 4.3. I know that Note 3 has been using it, and if you flash a ROM then the KNOX counter goes up, and you lose your warranty, and there's no way to lower the KNOX again. I haven't seen anything online about Note 2 using KNOX, so if I were to root my phone, would it set off my KNOX counter, or is Note 2 still using binary count?

Yes.

So I would suggest downgrading using the zip file from this thread.
That will get you back to the MC2 bootloader.

Then upgrade again using the directions from the first three posts of this thread. That will get you to 4.3 but with the MC2 bootloader which doesn't have Knox.
