Default Rooting SM-N900T with MI7 firmware without tripping KNOX

Hey Guys,

I went through the forums trying to root my newly purchased Note 3 (what a sexy beast she be) without tripping the KNOX counter. I followed the vega root method but had issues generating the firmware with the script provided, It was returning an error saying the exynos version isn't compatible. After some searching I found this site:

http://www.android.gs/root-t-mobile-...s-not-tripped/

It's basically the same process as the vega method but the firmware for MI7 is ready for download and to be put into odin. I literally followed the instructions 5 mins ago and can confirm I have root and have not tripped the KNOX 0x0 counter.

Hope this helps anyone with the same specific set up on their Note 3.

I know people have had problems with kingo method of rooting but I rooted with it no problem and no firmware worries either. And no tripping knox. And I can unroot when I want. Which is great for updating via ota.

I heard kingo works well but there is some worry add the application seems to send your info, IMIE (sp?) for example, to some Chinese server.

I used Kingo on my Tmobile Note 3 without any problem. It was super easy, and I have root.
It did not trip Knox.

As said above, your IMEI may be sent to a some random Chinese company. I'd hate to see a ton of Note 3 users suddenly have bricked phones.

Let's play this out. . . Say the Chinese gets my number please tell me exactly what happens next. EXACTLY please. No well basically, or from what I heard. . . How would the Chinese brick my phone by having my number? Exactly.

Good question and i would have to say that the most that they can do is report that number as stolen and temporarily disable your network access. All of your apps, mail, porn log ins are safe since those are stored on your phone. All you have to do is call T-Mobile and prove you owned that phone originally. Honestly your number is written on the outside of your box so anyone could have access to it.
