This method has been tested by me, on Galaxy Note 2 N7100 running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
the original thread can be found here


After root 1st make a efs backup and put in a safe place. in attach you have an working tool to do this!!!

!!! This will NOT set the Knox warranty void flag !!!

Quote:

>>> works only on MK... firmwares !!!




What you need:

>>> install kies or USB driver from here (skip if you have this)
>>> enable USB debugging mode (go to settings > about phone > tap on Build Number 7 times, until a message appears saying 'You are now a Developer.')
>>> go to settings > Developer Options and enable USB Debugging Mode


how to root:

1 - download root exploit from attach or from original thread
2 - extract the root exploit package using WinRAR / 7-zip
3 - connect the phone to computer
4 - navigate to the extracted directory and double click install.bat file
5 - follow the on-screen instructions



make the system status: official

> install xposed installer
> install wanam exposed
> activate wanam exposed from xposed installer
> go into wanam exposed - security hacks - system - fake system status

* or try this (have not tried)

* also you will get system status: official by revert to stock rom with odin


thanks to @k1mu for this method

This will NOT set the Knox warranty void flag!
The only change will be custom flag!

>>> install kies or USB driver from here (skip if you have this)
>>> enable USB debugging mode (go to settings > about phone > tap on Build Number 7 times, until a message appears saying 'You are now a Developer.')

Just for curiosity. ... though I installed knox on my unrooted stock device... its almost like TrueCrypt software...
After installing knox ; I reset the device and it was gone like never installed. ..

ByTheWay do we need to run Triangle Away to make the status Official ?
