Default Root BML1 Without tripping KNOX flag

Hello Everyone.
I have Samsung Galaxy S4 mini i9192
Ver. BML1.
Today i rooted it without tripping Knox with help of XDA member drnag.
All credits to him i'm just sharing What i did.
First Download Kingo app from their website (Google it)
Then install it and run.
You should be connected to internet in pc the connect your mobile to pc with debugging mode.
Click root.
After sometime it will ask that "Kingo will now root device by installing custom recovery...."
Click ok.
Now you device will restart in odin.
and it will be rooted.




This Worked for me but i dont know about other's devices. Try at your own risk.

Congrats and thank you. I just passed the information. I'm not a developer. Credit to great developers. And this is discussed in other threads.

Rooted ok. What next? Battery drain is the biggest problem. Not able to get rid of it. Hope some one bring up the solution.

Hey, the part where Kingo says, it will root device by installing custom recovery, it also categorically mentions that your device warranty willl be voided. And everywhere I've read it says, that the knox is tripped whenever a custom recovery is installed.

Are you sure that on bml1, the knox does not get tripped when installing custom recovery from kingo, given that kingo itself claims voiding warranty?

Yes rooted it quite a few times. It flashes the recovery as keyboard or other system software.
