New Rom at 18.12.2013 on SamMobile: I9205XXUCML1_I9205OXXCML2_I9205XXUCML1-TPH
New one today 16.01.2014 : I9205XXUCNA2_OXXCML4_XXUCNA2-TPH


Whit new bootloader. Confirmed whit KNOX.

After flash this Rom's I have this on Download Mode:

.....
KNOX KERNEL LOCK: 0x0
KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 1

Now... we must take care.
If we flash something like recovery, root... the Knox Warranty Void turn to 0x1. This flag at 0x1 is not reversible.

Like on another devices whit Knox I havn't trouble whit. My flag is already 0x1.

How I Root this Rom whit Knox bootloader and appl:

- First of all I have a appl superuser.apk (SuperSU v1.80) on extSdCard. For now I prefer this version.
- Flash by Odin the i9205-cwm-recovery.tar.md5.
- (For now I prefer the PhilZ-touch-recovery-6.0.4.6. Thanks @Phil3759). Reboot.
- Power off. On recovery by Power + Vol-up I flash the UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.80.zip from Chainfire. Thanks @Chainfire . Root but not Busybox.
- After reboot the SuperSU stop sometimes, it is installed on system/app and Knox not permit all access at system.
- Then, whit Explorer from Rom I go at extSdCard and touch on superuser.apk and install it. This way the apk is installed on data/app. Root solved.
- Now we can touch on icon SuperSU, this start and ask us to invalidate Knox. We must say Yes.
- Installed Busybox 1.21.1 of Stericson from Play Store. Verified whit "Root Verifier". It's all, we have all root now.

Next whit Root Explorer I delete all Knox apk + odex from system/app (see my post #4). Also superuser.apk from here, is not need on system/app.

My Mega I9205 work well now whit this Rom. My flag is 0x1, never mind.

EDIT1: All CSC on this Rom: BGL, BTU, CMF, COA, CRO, DBT, ETL, EUR, MSR, NEE, ORX, PHE, SEB, SIO, SMO, TPH, TWO, XEF, XEH, XEO

EDIT2: Read more about Knox on Post #12.

EDIT3: Links for Rom's ML1 and NA2 on Post #135

EDIT4: About the use of UPDATE-SuperSU-1.80 see Post #153.

EDIT5: For me all this work well. If You want make the same, make it at Your risk and responsibility, alright?

May be KNOX inside ?

It's there. Be careful with installing root.
Most probably Knox counter will start.

Download mode' menu changed.

Because I'm a retired man I need my Mega I9205 for my personal use only. Not for Enterprise or Government working, then I don't need the hateful KNOX.
After customer recovery install and root access, the first thing I make is delete all apk and more from it (whit Root Explorer):

1 - From system/app I delete:
ContainerAgent.apk + odex
ContainerEventsRelayManager.apk + odex
KLMSAgent.apk + odex
KNOXAgent.apk + odex
KNOXAttestationAgent.apk + odex
KNOXStore.apk + odex
KNOXStub.apk
SPDClient.apk + odex

From system/containers I delete:
All .apk + .zip file and 2 apk inside subfolder framework

Wipe cache + dalvik on recovery and all work for me (not for Knox )

PS: I make the same always on another device that have also the Knox, is alright always.

.

Agreed.
Me too.
But my question was targeted only to warranty terms. With flag 0x1, you will lose them.
Sure it's not interesting for all users, but in case ...

It seems that KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0 or 0x1 refer to Samsung System Security KNOX. If 0x1 is not secure for peoples that work on Enterprises or Government using the phone, and not to personal warranty. Still on discuss about.
