Seeing the volatility of kernel exploits (doesn't survive a kernel update obviously..), the complexity of exploiting such a bug (dep, aslr etc..not something you invent in an hour..) and the fact that I don't care much about knox software warranty my a$$ ( have custom if I want to revert), ladies and gentlemen I will happily ignore knox and root my sm-t520
sad news and i may just trip it as well

thanks for info
