Default [ROOT] How I Root my N7100 whit KNOX and 4.3

How I Root my N7100 whit Knox bootloader and appl, on 4.3:

- First of all I have a appl superuser.apk (SuperSU v1.91) on extSdCard.
- Flash by Odin the recovery PhilZ_touch_5.15.0_N7100.tar.md5. Reboot.
- Power off. On recovery by Power + Home + Vol-up I flash the UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.91.zip from Chainfire. Thanks @Chainfire . Root but not Busybox.
- After reboot the SuperSU can stop sometimes, it is installed on system/app and Knox not permit all access at system.
- Then, whit Explorer from Rom I go at extSdCard and touch on superuser.apk and install it. This way the apk is installed on data/app. Root solved.
- Now we can touch on icon SuperSU, this start and ask us to invalidate Knox (only from v1.80). We must say Yes.
- Installed Busybox 1.21.1 of Stericson from Play Store (After download touch on icon to instal). Verified whit "Root Verifier". It's all, we have all root now.
(Appl's downloaded before and have the apk's on extSdCard).

Next whit Root Explorer I delete all Knox apk + odex from system/app like HERE. Also superuser.apk from here, is not need on system/app.

My N7100 work well now whit this Rom whit Knox bootloader only.
On Download Mode I have Knox Warranty Void: 1, never mind for me.

PS: Made like on N9005, I9205 and I9195. All works.

EDIT: How to disable the Knox security sheild

Using Terminal Emulator
Type this command

su
pm disable com.sec.knox.seandroid
...wait... wait...
Killed.

This will prevent fc some of your root perm apps.

EDIT: This work well for me on 4 devices whit Knox. Try it at Your risk and responsibility.
Best Regards (Cumprimentos).

On my about device section,I have something saying SE for android status
Enforcing_0018

I wonder whether this can cause a problem..
Did you have something like Enforcing_0018 while flashing the recovery?
