It's hard to prove a negative...but I read this board daily. I read every topic regarding trade in adns warrenties.

I have never seen anyone talk about being denied a trade in on XDA due to KNOX.

Wink they don't check
The clerk handling returns/exchange is instructed to check just 2 points:
The phone powers up
The IMEI/ESN is the same as what you claim, they check behind the battery, they don't even check to confirm the software IMEI matches the sticker,

As far as I can tell it's a "no" for now. Anyone aware is this is going to persist or are we still on a "not right now but but they could start checking for KNOX any day now" status?

I have a GS4 and I don't think I'll upgrade until winter at the earliest... But I REALLY REALLY want to root my phone.

What version of android are you using? If you were on 4.3 or lower you could do something like this:
