[Q] Knox firmwares (MH8 or later), full device root possible? on the way?
The first 3 things I did when I got my S4 were:
- Open the packaging
- Update the firmware
- Root the ROM
Then... I find out afterwards about this knox fiasco and guess what? I'm 0x1 - I ain't even mad bro.
What I am mad about however, is the fact I cant seem to achieve a full device root, only can on do what most are calling a 'partial root' - and that's whether that be by installing a pre-rooted rom or using a flashable root file.
That affects me because half my root apps work, and half don't.
For instance: Titanium Backup? all good... Helium? Says cant work, no root (yes I know about desktop method)
So my questions are these:
1. Is there a definite way of achieving full device root on a knox-enabled rom?
2. If not, how likely is it to be possible in future?
3. If unlikely (or impossible) is the only option an AOSP rom? and are they even fully rootable when knox enabled?
If there is no hope on the horizon, I think I'm gonna have to flog this sucker on eBay.
