Hi there! I recently got my Note 3 and i want to root it! I'm always been rooting my devices. But i've never had a Samsung before.. and i read about Triangle Flasher, Odin and the new thing Knox? I want to root my Note 3, what disadvantages do i get by that? It's a European SM-N9005! How can i root it in a safe way? Do i need Knox? And what happens if i trigger the knox limit and the triangle flasher limit?

If you trigger knox, your warranty is void. Nothing else happens. The warranty can't be recovered by unrooting your device again. Therefore it is important to keep Knox untriggered, if you want to be able to use ur warranty in the future. You can root without triggering knox, but you have to be VERY careful when you root. You have to pick a root method that doesn't trigger Knox. And even then you can't install a custom rom, otherwise knox will get triggered. There is a possibility that knox will get figured out and we can do everything without worrying but no one knows for now.

I haven't heard about the triangle flasher limit yet. What is it and what does it do?

If knox is triggered? Yeah, sure. It's just about your warranty.

And warranty depends on carrier and retailer? like hardware damage! And then knox won't be a problem
