Question [Q] Can't OTA tripped knox

So I got a little carried away and went with the root method here on XDA using Odin, effectively tripping knox.

I've had the phone for about an hour. Well I didn't do an OTA update before rooting. I am currently on MI3. I would like to update to at least MI5 or whatever version gives the better call quality and can apply the free tether patch.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I've scoured the web for the past 30 minutes and yet to find any working updates...they are all broken links. Please someone give me some guidance.

Thanks,
Jason

The Odin TAR will get you back to Stock MJ4,MJ4 is the latest OTA update.

NO they is no Knox resetter available , YET!!! There is a ongoing Bounty for Knox 0x0 Restet see here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2486346

Also there are some claims that their Knox counter has been reseted in or under 10 mins after a trip to Sprint/Samsung Repair Shop. The Service Person DID notice the 0x1 warranty bit but offer to "fix it" ( maybe they knew each other, customer and Service person?)
See here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2504258

You do have to check because I do not know if with a tripped Knox 0x1 you are able to upgrade to new boot loader without problems, I believe i have read somewhere about that been a "Feature" of Knox, just make sure maybe someone with more knowledge on the matter can pitch in on this. or maybe it only apply to updates over Kies and does not matter on Odin.

So I was able to get Stock MJ4, then I went back in with the same Odin3 CF-Auto Root I used before and it doesn't seem to be rooting now. Everything is working fine except for things that require root of course. It completely hung up the first time, then it went through the second time but didn't install supersu properly. Need to do some reading.

Have you tried installing SuperSU from Play Store?
