Here is the phone status
SELinux status; permissive
Secure Boot status; Samsung
IN DOWNLOAD MODE
ODIN MODE (in red color)
Current Binary=Samsung official
Knox kernel Lock=0x0
Knox Warranty Void=0x0
Bootloder RP SWREV=1
Write Protection =Enable
Just rooting via Saferoot or similar methods will NOT trip knox = warranty intact.
Flash anything with odin WILL trip knox = warranty void.
Using custom ROM and Kernel WILL trip knox = warranty void.
So if your phone has problem, you have to remove root manually, which is explained at Saferoot post, any many thread, search for it.
If you phone does not boot, you can only send it back to Samsung.
