It's just a binary number. When you root your phone

1. Your device status will be CUSTOM
2. Your Knox code is tripped

Bad news is there's no turning back here. You will void your warranty and all Knox security feature. Currently, it's impossible to reset those flags

Good news is no one care about those craps, welcome to Knox Tripped Club and enjoy your freedom

As I said.

It will always stick with CUSTOM, you can't turn back to OFFICIAL

KNOX warranty will always show 0x1 (4), no matter how many times you flash

I turn back to OFFICIAL flashing STOCK ROM with ODIN (unrooted and factory reset)


Knox always show 0x1 (4) ??? Only on S5 or 4.4? Because with note 3 or S4 only show knox 0x1 without other number... I'm lost xd


Thanks for your help!

Don't worry about that bro, it's already there since the very first time your phone rooted. One way or another, that number (4) will not increase or decrease

Yes if you install an official rom the status'll be changed to official and now you can use Private Mode without any problem, and use the OTA updates.

Regarding the 0x1(4), yes it will always show that number no matter what you do.

I've 3 S5 rooted and all of them show different numbers after the 0x1...
