Thumbs up warranty repair

I have yet to see a person that brought their phone in and played the dumb card and when the repair man saw knox he refused to repair for free. I have myself used my warranty with knox 0x1 and i have not had any problems. There is no where in Samsung policy where it says that tripping fuse voids warranty.
I totally bricked my i9505 after I'd previously tripped the Knox warranty 0x1, I took it to a Samsung repair Centre and played dumb , they repaired the phone for free putting the latest kitkat firmware v4.4.2 . The service Centre did say if there was no warranty on the phone any hardware repairs would be a charged. I bought the phone on eBay and wasn't sure if it was still under warranty.Unfortunately I hate kitKat and now can't downgrade to jb v4.3. Absolutely no mention of efuses.

I don't think it was mentioned here so I'm just going to post this;
You can downgrade if you have Exynos Note 3.
Details are here:

Default Downgrade ?

Hi all,

It's possible to Downgrade a SM-N9005 Snapdragon ?

I like use a region Lock Away on my Note 3 for unlock Region/Sim.
