hello i have a sprint gs3 with the new 4.4.2 kitkat update and it is causing everything to force close. i am trying to root the phone and get a custom rom. i tried installing twrp using odin and it tells me it is invalid but i have a cwm recovery lte sprint gs3 v5 tar and it says it is valid i really want the twrp tho this is my first time rooting and dont want to mess anything up. i notice in the download screen it says my bootloader is enable is that going to be a problem and is rooting going to trip the knox? and how can i get knox off my phone?


thanks for the help sorry if this is the wrong place for this im new here

Hi! It seems you're in a sticky situation with the GS3, 4.4.2, root and Knox.

I found an excellent thread that has some good info about everything you've asked about. You could ask further questions there as well. But read it all very carefully!!

Good luck!!
