Sign [Q] Can I Root?

Hi guys,

I am using my Galaxy Mega for 7 months and bored of the Samsung Bloatware, i want to flash some original Android like CM or others. But i dont know my phone has this Knox stuff or not. How do we understand that is it safe or not safe to root these devices. My about page is like this:



Thanks for answers.

I did rooting and flashing roms on my sgs vibrant before.So i am not a complete noob. But I read some post which are saying that they had updated firmware and they bricked their phone when they tried to root. Thats why i am asking.

Go into download moda and check if there is knox. If there is, you cant and you cannot downgrade. It will cause a brick.
