Hello everyone,

Well, I rooted my s4 mini GT-I9195L 4.2.2 with the safe root "[ROOT] Saferoot: Root for VRUEMJ7, MK2, and Android 4.3" http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758.

I want to thank to the owner of the post and say that it worked for me.
I knew that this method disables KNOX and no sets the "Knox Warranty Void" flag. I entered in download mode after the root process and it showed Knox Warranty Void 0x0.

In conclusion i want to know if i need to uninstall or delete all the files of KNOX to prevent some issue in the future.

Thanks for your answers.

You can use Triangle Away to reset your device status to "non modified".

Thats the way the app is meant. Please read the app thread before proceed and of course I can't take any responsibility to any changes you perform.

I just read about it again:

"Triangle away" will reset your "flash counter" ans set the device status back to "Samsung". At the moment its not possible to reset KNOX from 0x1 to 0x0 if its already triggered.
