Through some flashing process, I noticed that the SM-N900W8, despite multiple flashing, remains under 0x0 status in KNOX

So it is confirmed that the said model is both mod-friendly and knox-friendly.
There are some limitations though which CAN BE FLASHED.
Refer to post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2627996 [SM-N900W8 List of KNOX friendly flashing]

THIS IS ONLY FOR SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 3 SM-N900W8 MODEL. TRY THIS ON OTHER VARIANTS? DON'T BLAME ME FOR UNDESIRED KNOX COUNTERS!

Note: In rooting your Samsung GALAXY Note 3, make sure that REACTIVATION LOCK is UNCHECKED under the security options or else the flashing will interrupt. I also recommend having the original fimware as a backup if anything goes wrong. If you did not follow this direction, it will not be my fault if you run into a bootloop or malfunction.

Confirmed: NO NEED FOR THE TELCEL FIRMWARE TO BE FLASHED. Go with the firmware in your device.
I am using my RWC firmware and KNOX wasn't tripped during the process.

What to do?
Get the following files from the links provided below.

FLASH FIRST the ChainFire Auto-Root I have provided. The SM-N900W8's root file will not work in Kitkat, so use the one I provided. After flashing, check your DOWNLOAD MODE and confirm if it is still 0x0 or 0x1. If all is still in success, flash now the TWRP.

Device will be considered FULLY ROOTED but limited by some functions due to the KNOX Secure Kernel.

Notice the following:
A. I am using XPOSED Modules for theming my Note 3 into a GALAXY S5
B. My device is running under ROGERS Wireless because I bought the phone from ROGERS
C. Device has ROOT Access and is working with Titanium Backup / SQLITE Editor / XPOSED

Good job, but quite late. There have been two posts by Oogar and polish_pat already on the forums confirming KNOX 0x0 and have been teaching hundreds.

This is the latest up to date version of the guide. Inside I explain a possibility to why this happens.
