Smile I rooted my Note 3 on KitKat without tripping Knox, also got voice recording working

I just wanted to share that I was able to do it, and without tripping knox.

It was either a miracle, I have a special phone, I have no idea.

What I did:

- Entered ODIN mode
- Flashed CWM recovery for Note 3 (for my exact phone model, Samsung N900W8, it's a Canadian One) -- GENUINELY thought I'd trip Knox, but CF auto root was not working, so this was my option.

This somehow did not trip Knox at all, then all I had to troubleshoot a bit. I tried a few older versions of the SuperSU for CWM package, none of them worked... then finally I found out that these were old versions, I downloaded the 1.89 superSU package for CWM/TWRP, and now I am officially rooted.

Once I booted in, I had to load SuperSu which then said "Do you want to disable KNOX to get root working?" or something to that extent.. At my own risk I did that, still didn't trip the KNOX counter.

Booted up, works, able to use root on a lot of different apps.

I have no idea if it's a miracle it did not trip Knox, if I have a magic phone, etc.. but I thought I'd share.

This is root, not a custom kernel or anything.

Second bit: I was able to get call recording with Call Recorder working as long as I used to CAF (root required) option. No other option worked, not kernel, not with installed Alsa, etc..

If anyone wants any more specific information about my phone, I will gladly share. All I know is knox 0x0 with root is pretty sweet.

Was this the first time you rooted your N3? or did it have root on a lower android version?

Why don't people include the model number in the title?? As mentioned above, this is known about.

Any chance we can have the forum search button a bit BIGGER so people know where it is!!

I'm fed up with having my hopes raised and then slashed to nothing

When you boot into your custom recovery it doesn't say set warranty bit recovery?
