Default How do I brick my N9005? Knox is tipped, but I need warranty.

Hello.

I rooted my N9005 and tipped knox counter after a few months of usage (I thought my phone had no h/w problems so I rooted it)
Last week, my N3 flash (camera) won't light up. i think it is disconnected or maybe it was faulty from the purchase date (never used it before).
I flashed back stock rom. Same problem persisted so I went to service center, they refused to help me stating that my KNOX counter is tipped


I am thinking of rendering my phone useless, so they would not see KNOX counter?

Any idea?

Thanks

You do the crime, you do the time. Nobody will probably help or assist you with this request as it is considered fraude. Not permitted on XDA, next time you will be reported. Why did you root a defective device anyway
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

These kind of questions - and there have been many - make me seriously wonder about the mental acuity of some of the people here.

I mean, this is a developer's forum. Why on earth would you think that a "Help I f****d my phone up, it was my fault, please help me commit fraud" would get any sort of advice?

Try tapping the phone lightly on your head. Since your brain seems to be denser than Osmium, the phone should shatter on impact without causing any damage to the few neurones you seem to possess. Reported.
