You must be on 100% stock odexed MD4 to flash this (rooted/unrooted doesn't matter)

Just posting this here for people to find it easily

What does voiding Knox mean? Boot loader flag goes from 0x0 to 0x1

Notes about Knox:
FLASHING A: CUSTOM KERNEL or CUSTOM RECOVERY on MK3 boot loader VOIDS KNOX
CANNOT DOWNGRADE TO OLDER FIRMWARE!
Composed of an OS side and firmware (bootloader-side) implementation. Apps (OS components) can be removed, but the firmware components CANNOT.

You can still root on the new firmware...but you can't flash a custom recovery or custom kernel, or else you will trip Knox
Sign up for the new Copy file storage service with this link and get both of us an extra 5 GB!
Or sign up for Dropbox with this link and we can both grab some extra storage!

You have to be unrooted stock. It needs stock recovery. The zip is just like you taking a OTA update.
Experimentation remains the best catalyst for progression.

I'm in the process of doing this right now lol. I was debating on going back to stock or just waiting till one of the many talented devs figured something out.

According to the great minds here, it has to be like stock, it's essentially like receiving the ota.

Then I have to download 834MB file size in order to flash 495MB file size
Is it any way to flash stock recovery and make unrooting by supersu itself?

If you already have a stock rom and recovery installed and you don't have an sd card handy, it's easy to update the zip using ADB sideload. Assuming you have used ADB before and know how to use it on your computer
  1. Download the file and rename it something easy like "update.zip"
  2. reboot the phone into recovery by pressing volume up, home, and power
  3. select the option to update via ADB
  4. plug in phone to computer with USB cable
  5. on your computer open a terminal window and if you want to make sure the ADB connection works type "ADB devices" you should see some numbers listed followed by "sideload"
  6. flash the file by typing "adb sideload update.zip" if you named it update.zip that is, then press enter
  7. once it's done hit the power button to reboot
  8. profit??
