I too took kies update . Couldn't root ,went back to ne6 rooted again with towel root, then iPC odin flashed the nf6 modem after that i PC odin flashed the nf6 firmware. I did not see the kernel in beanstowns stock official thread. So i downloaded the full tar. Moved it to my sdcard. Flashed only kernel , recovery and system WITH MOBILE ODIN PRO. Since i already had installed modem and firmware seperately
. Mobile odin pro worked like a charm. Rooted knox oxo not tripped!
MOBILE ODIN PRO WILL GIVE A RED WARNING SAYING IT WILL TRIP KNOX . BUT IT DID NOT TRIP IT THIS TIME.
SAME THING HAPPENED WITH THE NOTE 3.
update, it was brought to my attention by 1iwilly that mobile odin pro after installation causes the device to have a custom status. i uninstalled it and my phone said official but after a while i noticed that somehow supersu had disappeared . some of my apps antutu and cpuz said i had root access but the root checker apps said i was not rooted. i tried towel root again on mf6 no go. i was not able to install supersu from the play market or any of the apks from chainfire. the error was that it was incompatible and i think it may have had something to do with installing mobile odin pro as a system app and later deleting it.
luckily a factory reset made supersu come back and i then updated it.i was back to official status . i again installed mobile odin pro this time from the market. im not sure but i suspect that whether it is a system app or not it will say custom status if it is installed., the important thing is knox does not get tripped regardless/. and if need be flashing an unrooted full tar from pc odin or even factory reset will make status official again. (if needed for warranty} as far as ota updates custom status would prevent them but i dont mind that as ota probably would fail anyway and if it did suceed it would surely unroot. so i decided custom status is worth keeping my root apps.
if you prefer to have official ststus do not inject mobile odin while flashing only inject supersu and tick everoot. if you end up with root issues a factory reset may fix them as it did for me
GEOHOT FOR TOWELROOT
CHAINFIRE FOR MOBILE ODIN PRO
REQUESTED ADDITION FROM 1iwilly
hey ashraf sharif can you add this to your op this is from geohot=every android phone with a kernel date up to june 3=the key word up to june 3
so to me this mean that when we get another update we might have to re flash to n6 then do the same steps as we did with nf6. that's just my 2cents way of thinking i could be wrong but time will tell
