Hi all,

I got my N9005 unit from the UAE, and brought it home here in the Philippines. Since it's very frustrating to realize that the UAE updates have been known to be notoriously delayed, I am considering flashing firmware from other regions, more specifically the ones for the Philippines.

This led me to certain questions:
1. Will it trip Knox, and therefore my warranty?
2. Will I still be able to get future updates via OTA?

any input will be greatly appreciated.

1. You don't even mention what firmware you are on and you ask about Knox. Talk less about where you bought but more about what you want. Must likely the answer is YES YES YES.
2.YES YES YES
