Thank you for your reply, but (and no offence intended) what does the link have to do with rooting and Knox avoidance?

I get my phone in about a week, so i'm not sure if it'll be running KK or L yet, will towelroot work for both?
I'm guessing that for the above, I don't need a custom recovery anyway.......it'd be nice to be able to go down the whole cusROM route, but it's something I *can* live without if I have to.....
Root is more important for what I want to do.......

towelroot will work on some kk firmware but not on 5.0,regard's, useing towelroot will not trigger knox .

Yes.....root is important to me......there's a couple of apps that I've kinda gotten used to that need root access......besides which, it'll be good to be able to TiBu freeze the bloatware........

Guys make a petition to allow registered Samsung account to reset knox and use it as paid service advantage include in phone price and make it for all knox enabled phones, phablet and tablets like EU did with warranty void flag inforcment
My point is why not to own all my phone advantages regardless of HARDWARE WARRANTY SAMSUNG
We need no miracle to reset knox all we need is a leak..... ok
