I rooted and the KNOX was 0x1 . Now I flashed a new ROM twice, and I got KNOX to 0x0.

Tell us. According to all trustful sources there's no way to cheat eFuse.

Custom ROMs can display anything. Does the counter still read 0x0 if you flash the stock firmware back?

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.

Saferoot
Hi, I also used Saferoot ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758 ) to root my Galaxy S4 mini duos with UBUBMK4 firmware. Since it works through ADB instead of Odin it doesn't trigger Knox. Should work just as well for non-duos version.

I wish Safe root was the first google hit for S4 mini duos root, unfortunately it was instead the method that flashes another kernel before putting the root. Not only does it trigger KNOX, wifi doesn't work in some regions after using that.
