Note: this does not disable the Knox counter, just the apps.
Reboot as SuperSU suggests.
Now that you have root access, you need to get BusyBox and Xposed, get the stable version 2.6.1

If you reboot, or power up, into download mode you should see a 0x0 Knox

P.S. you don't need xposed but it has some very nifty modules.
T-Mobile doesn't care if Knox is tripped or not. So however you root you are fine.

I'm not so much worried about T-Mobile as I am for selling it to someone else. I generally sell my old phone right before I get the new one to help with the down payment so I am not paying a hefty payment every month. Some people out there would like to use the phone for all it's features, including but not limited to the Knox apps, which disable themselves if you trip the Knox. However, I do appreciate that bit of info.
Please remember to give thanks if I helped you.
