GS5 Sport ROM
So with the fact that GS5 ROMs and Recoveries don't work for the GS5 Sport (SM-860P) - has anyone found any ROMs or recoveries being developed for this device?

I have been searching and unable to find any threads....

NO Rooting alone does not trip knox. I am rooted and have done several small mods without tripping knox. Custom ROM or Kernel will trip it. My next test will be to see if I can Odin a de-odexed stock rom without tripping knox. If so, I will probably be able to create/mod my way to exactly what I want without tripping knox... but I am pretty sure the odex-ed rom will trip it.

When you install supersu or any su app it going to trip Knox no matter what. That the way Samsung designed it.

Deleted...redundant question...I found the posts above this explaining that there is no custom recovery for the SM-G860P, Sprint's Galaxy S5 Sport.

Awesome. Hoping someone develops one. I don't really care about the Knox trip...I want a NANDroid backup.

I've been trying to do Auto Root and keep running into problems:

<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/003> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> recovery.img
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> cache.img.ext4
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1

I had originally done it w/o the PIT file but I found one for the G900P and tried adding that. It got further with the PIT file but I am still having a problems. Any idea?
