Prompt [Q] Rooting Tmobile 4.3 OTA help!

Happy New Year Everyone! I have someting I have been trying to do. I did the OTA update to 4.3 that included knox, yes I know stupid. I only did it because I have Tmobile JUMP and I want to return it to tmobile after 6 months and purchase a nexus 5. The question is, How can I root and flash a rom without tripping knox? I am ok about the flash counter because I have triangle away. But if there is ANY way to do this please respond as I want a non OEM rom.

I have a Tmobile Galaxy S 4 ( SGH-M919)

Thank You
Happy New Year!

There's no way as of this writing to test Knox counter.
Someone stated using Saferoot didn't trip the Knox so you might want to look into that.

I dont think Triangle Away is compatible for 4.3. Rooting should be out of the question if you don't want to lose your warranty.

I've been contemplating this and have a sort of similar situation but not that similar. I want to flash my s4 but I updated it to the 4.3 update via Kies and obviously Knox has been installed. Now, my situation at hand is I have insurance through T-mobile to cover accidental damage and because of a drop the bottom left corner of the screen is cracked and over time I just started plucking the shards out and eventually just exposed the entire menu button side to the corner of the screen itself.

Now if I were to flash CF-Auto Root and then install CWM and CM11, will T-mobile still honor the Insurance?

Or if I were to Odin back to the stock mdl or mk2 rom, would they still take the phone back.

I don't see why not. Insurance is totally different than warranty.
Since you updated to 4.3 via Kies, you can Odin back to stock mk2 but not mdl.

Makes plenty of sense considering I'm paying for a service than not. Thanks, that clarified a bit of my doubt.
