I bought an I9192 yesterday with MK4. I rooted with saferoot....the updated one on P4 post # 36. I followed the instructions and at the end it said that Knox was disabled. In download mode the counter was still at 0x0. I then flashed TWRP from this forum and my Knox counter is still at 0x0 and the phone works fine....FYI. From reading the thread about saferoot, if it cant root your phone, no harm will be done.
