I have Galaxy S4 tri-band SPH-L720T with L720TVPUBNC6 kitkat 4.4.2. I understand that rooting this phone will set Knox to 0x1. But i need Knox to use phone at work, unless someone knows of an alternative to it? I'm thinking an already rooted NC6 tar flashed via Odin will not trip knox, is that right? I've seen rooted stock roms before, but i could not find rooted NC6. Is there a way i could mod/root the original tar.md5 file and then flash it? Some help would be great.

Thanks a lot

What are the odds of someone finding a way to root Kitkat without affecting Knox? If Knox 0x1 only voided the warranty and did not disable it then i would not care about it. I've found alternatives to Knox, that may have to be enough for now.

Any methods that you will find that accomplish this have been guaranteed by Samsung to be quickly put to bed.
They're all for being able to root but they have to assure Enterprise MDM users of data security.
It's why I use the G2 for Airwatch and leave the S4/S5 for dev or home use.

What about this method below i found on xda after a lot of searching?:

Keep Knox 0x0 root- Kitkat upgrade

If by G2, you mean LG G2, then yes it's all LG or HTC for me now. And Airwatch is on the top of my list of Enterprise MDM, This begs the question, if knox is tripped will Airwatch or another MDM still work? Or, since Knox is in the bootloader, can Samsung lock the phone to only use Knox?
