Hi,

I have two questions - hope someone can assist:
1.Do you know a customized ROM with working KNOX?
2. If I will flash Samsung's original ROM, will I have a working KNOX? What about the flag?

Thanks.

I believe you can still use knox even if the flag is 0x1. What just that means is that the container is not as secure and companies who allow BYOD will not certify it for use in their company. Most custom rom I've come across doesn't have knox.

So - flashing Samsung ROM with ODIN will flag 0x1?

Not really unless knox is already 0x1.

The phone is unrooted.
Sorry for asking again - if I understood well, flashing my unrooted phone with Samsung ROM will leave the phone with warranty (cleared flag)?
Thanks again.

Doesn't your phone already have Samsung rom or you are trying to update to 4.4.2?

I updated to 4.4.2 (OTA) but have a lot of problems so I want to go back to 4,3.

I'm afraid it's not possible to downgrade to 4.3 once you upgrade to 4.4.2 ( for now ). Only the N900W8 can go back and forth between 4.3 and 4.4.2.
