Default Reflash the knox bootloader maybe?

Im on the official 4.3 stock rom. Did the cf auto root and tripped the knox bit.
The thing is in TWRP recovery you can nandroid backup of current rom and asked me what to backup featuring bootloader modem efs etc. And can restore back what was backed up before

I was wondering if someone still in 4,1,2 bootloader with rom too can makae nandroid back for us to try to flash with the old bootloader. Maybe we can overwrite the bootloader like nothing happened?

Hello guys as far as I know nandroid backup does not contain bootloader, to flash a bootloader it must be done by odin I think, there is a link I will get it for you by dr keton the great on how to down grade the bootloader but I am not sure if it will work or not with triggered knox (I think it should work as what is the use then)

Backup boot option in the recovery generally means the kernel.
Kernels are named boot.img generally.

I think you can downgrade the bootloader using this.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2089353

However this thread was originally made for 4.1.2 bootloaders. Not sure if it works on knox bootloader.

It uses adb so I guess it should work.

Hello guys, I am on ine of the latest 4.3 bootloaders, I searched for how to downgrade the only way was by doc keton using 4.3 mj5 leaked version, but even this did not work cause my smart ass bootloader detected it as an unsupported version too, I simply went to samsung the guys there was very nice they downgraded my phone in 10 min on stock 4.1.2 rom with old bootloader it js like I just boot the phone, so y does not our developers figure this out cause knox is no e-fuse and samsung know how to downgrade it

1. Doc keton?
2. The knox security is a multi layer security. Though perhaps it is a software instead of efuse, it won't be as easy as flip ur palms.
3. Samsung may easily boot back ur phone, coz they have the tools (either software/hardware). So, it might look easy on u / whoever have experienced the same thing like u.
4. The dev here most of them are part time d3vs who just do this for hobbies on their spare time. And there's a bounty thread for this knox. My last read is around $3.1, and unclaimed.
5. Be patient mate.

I meant dr ketan sorry am not rushing our great developers here they are doing enough already, I already got mine done, I also to confirm on the dear members here that it is doable and it is only software not efuse, so we should get it eventually.

Thanks for your time mate.
