Default Friend borrowed phone Updated 4.3 knox blocks su

How do I reboot or get a 4.3 version knox free or bypass knox moderator edit superuser lol.. friend borrowed phone uprooted and updated to 4.3 ota.
Now knox kicks super user and force closes .
I read there's a way I think to re root I think maybe by Mr Robison root 66.
All I wanna so is either be on a 4.1.2 rooted Rom or 4.3 that doesn't affect superuser What's the method ?

Well KNOX is on your phone now and there is no way (yet) to get rid of it. Try updating su in the play store. The new version can get around it.

Buy root Explorer from the market then go to System then apps look for knox and remove it I think there are like 3 knox files then reboot and then your knox free

Good thought but I don't think it's that simple.. It's well noted that there isn't a way to safely bypass or remove it yet If your method Was the case it would be all over the forum and probably one of the first things tried the day 4.3 ota was pushed .
Its built in the bootloader . I'm not sure what damage would cause if i try removing with a root explorer app.

Good morning,

I am no WIZ but it seems to me that all you would need to do is revert (flash) your NOTE 2 back to a stock, Predated to 4.1.1 OEM T-Mobile Rom.

However, since XDA is a creative lot, there is really no reason for me to presume that you still use T-Mobile as your carrier; not that it makes much difference at this point, So rather than being the horses ass as I sit here making my first post and since I am too new to be allowed to make life easy on you by merely laying down the link, go to Galaxynote2toroot under the heading of stock firmware. I think you will find your answers there. The site lists most all of the original or at least those firmwares you might use including those after 4.1 and prior to v 4.30. They have flashing tools as well...probably light-fingered from here (smiling) but in any case it seemed to be a simple method to get you where you want to go.

Sidebar: Personally, I am going to contribute to the cause supporting the old turned new GalaxyNOTE2 Toolkit v4.1.0. conjured up by mskip http://forum.xda-developers.com.php?=1957720 because I think it is and will continue to be a pretty swish tool to prevent me making the typical, wreck your Note2 rookie mistakes. And I secretly plan over time to make him a friend so he'll help me when I falter. It is a wonderment to me how complicated but pro tool accepting the little bastards be.

So, depending on your expertise in these matters, you might take a look as well, In any case I hope you get it fixed.

Best regards,

dm
