Warranty will be gone if you trip Knox and there is no way as of yet to reset it. If you root and use SuperSU there is an option which will also unroot it if you need to.

It's worth noting that I used this tool from their website way before it was posted here. It's universal, so I don't really know why OP has separate links for different variants - there's no reason for it. You choose the device in the toolkit when you run it, not when you download it. Just grab it from SkipSoft's website and it will work just fine for you.

Default Rootkit update with new ANE2 firmware

Hi, just want to know when is it likely to get an update to the donated version(35R864376C6670800) of the toolkit to have the newly released firmware update to ANE2?

Great toolkit and always use this to root my phones (used previously for S3, now have the S5)

thanks

PS I have noticed that the boot-stock-ance-SMG900F.tar contains the boot image from the previous firmware, if I package the new boot image as a tar file with the name would this be enough for the phone to have the new boot image? otherwise I am happy to wait!

If you need the new firmware let me know and I will share
