Default Anyone Know if the Kingo fears have been fixed?

*title*

Just wondering if they ever updated Kingo sending information...i wanna root but this seems the safest way/ only way to root in not tripping Knox. In the end...from what it sounds like it does doesn't sound like the worst...but curious

There has been some dialogue between XDA and Kingo staff. However, there are always issues when using third party software. I suggest you do some more reading, even off of XDA for that matter, to get fully informed.

The issue is about IMEI data being sent, which Kingo now/recently alleges has been removed, I humbly suggest ALL users go with caution, and remember that if you brick your fancy device, DO NOT resort to fraud, own your issues. Be adults.
Every time you don't use search, a kitten, bunny, baby turtle, and fuzzy Harp Seal are killed.

use root de la vega. That's what I used. Pretty simple. Follow instructions and you should be fine. Keeps your knox intact with root.
If you think I was helpful buy me a brew or coffee or hookah

Unless you're unlucky enough to have recently purchased a Note with the updated firmware preinstalled.

This is the T-Mobile forum... there has not been an Updated Firmware released for the SM-900T yet. So this is not (yet) an issue. Personally, I would just use the KingoRoot process.

Yeah, I realized that after the fact. My bad.
