Default Disable KNOX without rooting your device(get more ram)

i just found that after updating my note 2 (kitkat 4.4 india) i try to disable knox using app manager but i could not.

so today i had to uninstall some apps using touchwiz (main menu settings) i found option to uninstall or disable apps(disabling apps is new for me ) so i go to knox(in ap drawer) and TA DA i did it

i could not post image here(i am new here and i dont know how to do this) so i am attaching a file that is the proof that we can disable that KNOX please give fair comment about image and confirm this


i know that we can not get rid of KNOX yet , but at least we can now disable it and save much much ram that knox used to eat

Thanks!

There would be another way also , After Stock ROM installation Knox will prompt to run or activate and I never confirmed , instead after rooting I run superuser and was notified to disable knox by first run on superuser and the application did it well for me.

I don't see the problem with Knox. When its not activated, it doesn't do a thing, and does not "eat" any ram afaik.
