Default Tripped knox, now can't get into recovery! Need help.

I have a GS4 mini (SCH-I435) and I went to flash a recovery and it tripped my knox. Needless to say a verizon added a so called safety software that you can not even get ito the recovery, Please help! Can't find the firmware or a RUU for it

To get the phone to boot hold power and vol down, brings you to download mode.
perform the option to continue, now at the next screen select reboot and you're back. no recovery but back

Unfortunately, we don't have a recovery file for our phone yet. I wasn't aware that tripping Knox disabled recovery. Have you tried using supersu to sort Knox out? I remember there being some sort of option to do so.

Yup, just confirmed, I can get to recovery and Knox is still at 0x0.

Yea, I guess I will have to wait till I can my hands on the firmware and flash the bootloader thru Odin maybe, if you have any ideas I'm all ears.

Sorry, missed this but which bootloader are you looking for? I don't think There are any Ways Of successfully downgrading our bootloader but if you're willing to try I'll try with you.

Have you seen the firmware for our phone's yet, that would be very useful. I keep seeing post and articles about kit Kat, I wonder when we will see it. Have you heard anything about unlocking the bootloader?
