Unhappy [Q] How to Remove KNOX Bootloader on GALAXY Note II


Hi there!

I just upgraded my GALAXY Note II N7100 to newest version (Android 4.3 N7100XXUEMK4). My SIM card is detected, but it doesn't work. It always shows "Emergency Calls Only" and my IMEI was all messed up. I tried flashing back my 4.1.2 official ROM, but KNOX BL on Odin prevented me doing that. It shows "Unsupported version" and my KNOX warranty bit turned to 1. Also, I have had to flash the UEMK4 again, cause the phone shows "Firmware update encountered an error".

I just want to know, that can I remove KNOX BL by downloading a KNOX-free custom rom (Ditto Note3, etc.) and flash it via CWM?? Anybody pls help me, cause Samsung can't repair this thing. (Well, Sammy can repair it, but it costs me more than $100 !!)

knox bootloader cannot be downgrade
Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100
Rom: N7100XXUEML3
Kernel: 3.0.31-2229877
Bootloader: N7100XXUEML3

Being a noob is not an excuse to be stupid and lazy.

If you don't care about warranty, why you come here crying after you bricking your device and then asking how to claim the warranty ?

Alright, all I need to do now is waiting for Samsung to release the official one for my country, so my SIM card will get detected?? well, just another question. Can I still install KNOX-free custom rom?? *Thats alright if the KNOX still stick on my BL*. If I can, what will happen to my phone??
