Default Reset Knox Counter - SM-N900 Exynos

Hello,

i have SM-N900 Galaxy Note 3 with Exynos processor, i got this phone around 6 months or more. In these past 6 months, i never root doing any tweaks with Odin / any other HH tweaker because i dont have the courage to do so. I want to root it since i have this phone, but knowing there is Knox tripping and such, i never try to root.

And then, i just read some articles to check out your Knox warranty, because i'm curious about 'if' there is any Knox Warranty void on Exynos version, i tried to install Phone Info - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...uyen.phoneinfo - and then i checked out, my Knox warranty void is 0x1.

I also getting inside Odin Mode, and the Knox warranty Void is 1, but my Phone status is Samsung Official, the rest is Official.

I read this helpful post to reset KNOX counter on SM-N900: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9946&nocache=1 , on those steps, it said it needs to flash Stock ROM to remove the Custom status of your device to back into Official, after you flash the bootloader for resetting Knox warranty void.

Question:

1) I wonder, can we only go through the 1st step, just only flash the bootloader with odin to my Galaxy note 3, only to reset the Knox warranty void back to 0, without flashing the stock Rom afterwards? because i don't want to wipe out my phone and lost all my data (I know i can backup it via Kies), and my phone status is already Official.

2) Does flashing the bootloader itself, will wipe your data inside your phone?


Thanks before for any answers!

if i am not wrong ... and as i used to do with note 1 back then

installing a stock rom over another stock rom does not require to wipe data but maybe this is different since u have to flash a bootloader

sorry ... i know i did not help much

as i said .. if u install a stock rom over another one . u dont have to wie data at all and u wont lose any thing ..
but since u gona use another file with the stock rom (( the bootloader )))
u better see the steps for this way .. maybe it is require ti wipe and format .
