For all the effort we spent on keeping KNOX at 0x0, it appears pointless.

I took my phone over to a Samsung Repair center, and even though my KNOX was at 0x0, it was still deemed Out - Of - Warranty because the Status was custom.

Of course you might be able to use Triangle Away or Wanam to Zero it, but then the techs will see those, and Void your warranty anyways.

It's luck of the draw...

I checked the status of the repair and it said they had replaced a component. I wasn't sure if they were going to do anything since I had tripped KNOX counter.

**The kicker**

I got it back today and immediately went into download mode and to my surprise, KNOX was reset to 0X0!! I know they said they were going to flash it back to stock when they got it, but i didn't think KNOX could be reset (even by them).

Did it have an external SD card in it? Sometimes that can cause the Custom status.

What country are you in? Here in the UK mobiles are covered by EU law and have a 2 year warranty. Over at the S4 forums we've had guys with no issues with warranty once KNOX has been tripped but I guess it varies on your service centres and such.
