You can not install a custom recovery without tripping the knox warranty flag. That is what trips the flag in the first place not rooting. If you use safe root to root your phone the knox warranty flag is not tripped because it doesn't change recovery. If you use cf autoroot, knox is tripped because cf autoroot loads a modded stock recovery to achieve root and then reloads the stock recovery. Since the recovery was changed, even temporarily, the knox flag was tripped. So to summarize for those that didn't understand. You can root your phone with safe root and not trip knox, but once you install a custom recovery to flash custom roms or flash mods you will trip the knox warranty flag. Safe root provides you a method to debloat your phone and use apps that require root, but you can't install custom roms unless you install a recovery which will then trip the knox flag.
