Has anyone considered that Knox only trips to show phone has been tampered with for security issues? Maybe has nothing to do with our little hobby. Just a thought. Anyway, found it interesting and thought yall would too.

Yes, they say as much on their site on the issue (security for enterprise users and it being a secure countermeasure for the bring your own device to work crowd), though their message to consumers may be changing, as others have contacted Sammy and reported just the opposite.
I believe that this is very useful information, and let us hope that it entails a sea change on the rise. Perhaps I and others can place calls to them and see what we are told.
On a side note, if your still having trouble with your EFS, flash the file below from recovery and see if that doesn't just put your phone back into action.
