Default Reasons to not trip Knox (other than warranty and if you actually use it)?

Just wondering whether there is any reason to NOT trip Knox, besides wanting to keep warranty and if you actually use it...

Samsung Knox offers security for enterprises and businesses, but it doesn't seem like Knox is made for the average user. I don't really care about warranty since I don't think Samsung UK would be able to do sh*t for my T325 since isn't sold in retail here.

I just want to confirm whether I need my T325 at 0x0 or not? I'm just scared that Samsung will release something that needs 0x0 all of a sudden -_-

What do you guys think? Thanks!

Once Knox is 0x1, you will not be able to install Knox apps only. It also has nothing to do with the hardware warranty. The Knox flag is there to be absolutely certain that a tablet/phone has not been modified in a way that could circumvent Knox Security software.

Some people, such as myself, consider this a benefit...

Has anyone tripped Knox and still been able to use the warranty on a hardware issue? I could care less about using Knox apps, but I'd like to keep my new tablet warranty.

Is there an easy way to check knox? SuperSu disabled it.

Boot into Download Mode. Volume down + Home Button + Power Button. You will see Knox warranty in upper left corner of the screen. To exit Download mode, hold Power button until it shuts off.

Hope this helps,
Steve
