Hi would be great if you can share info on this knox stuff as is it possible to install root and recovery without tripping knox as if in old bootloader,and which version of android contain the old bootloader for the s4 as the the phone comes with 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and after the rooting and recovery install can we upgrade to the latest from the old bootloader or do we need to update to the latest bootloader which has knox.

well I am asking this as in note2 it was possible to update to the latest without getting into knox **** and then loose warranty,hope someone can share light on this quick as would love to jump into this thread.

Yes there is a utility by Chainfire.

I am not sure if it will affect OTAs or perhaps any official software update that gets pushed through by Kies3
