Smile How to OTA check when rooted using Wanam Xposed

I might be stating the obvious but in case someone rooted doesn't know:

When you are rooted you can't check for updates OTA. There was a lot of chat about whether you had to defrost various apps etc. to fool the update feature. Using Wanam Exposed, under "Security Hacks" you get the option to change (fake) "System status" from "Custom" setting to "Official", and thus allowing you to check using Samsungs update feature. Much easier than having to check Sammobile every day. Hope it helps someone.

* Note 10.1 4G 2014 edition (P605, URDLV root, build MJ9, TWRP)

Correct... but the OTA removed root at my P605 and reapplying the latest MJ9 with URDLV tipped the Knox state of my device...

That is interesting. I installed URDLV'ed MJ9 via ODIN, lost root, reapplied root using script and didn't trip the efuse.

Does anyone know if this also allows you to watch/download movies from the Samsung Hub and make them watchable once you've rooted?

I don't know of this works on the note II.

Be sure that you haven't frozen/removed the update service?

What happens when you try to update? Does the service fail to start (i.e. no response at all) or do you get the "modified" message?

I've downloaded videos from the Hub after rooting and installing custom firmware. Don't think Samsung cares as long as you are spending money.
You can find the movie files (pyv files) in a hidden file, .samsungvideohub, on sd card. Opening it and going to the .pyv file will play on all video players I've tried on my device but not so sure on PC.
