As we all know attempting to roll back NAE trips knox...but it's been stated that rolling back without rolling b ask the bootloader will not trip knox...but this is unconfirmed. ..has anyone tried it? Anyone willing to?

And let's say I want to try it myself...I've never used Odin before now so how would you set it up to flash just the ROM?

If you have the true Knox Bootloader - took the OTA or flashed via Odin...
As of now you CANNOT go back to a non-knoxed bootloader.
If you wish to try what has been done, probably hundreds if not thousands of times and try - go ahead. You'll find that out.
Your question is brought up a few times a week, sometimes a day here.

"Rolling back without rolling"? As leader stated you cannot roll back via Odin to a previous OTA build. And that is not what trips Knox. Rooting doesn't even trip Knox. Its installing a custom recovery that trips Knox.

Ment to say "rolling back without rolling back the bootloader"...apparently auto correct decided I ment to say something else.

So basically. ..The attempt would just fail..and that's it..Ok all I needed to know...and thanks for the clarification on the custom recovery thing. I've read conflicting info.

So I took the OTA to 4.4.2, are you saying that there is a way I can root my phone without triggering know? Is a custom recovery necessary?

there was with 4.3 using Kingo app or Saferoot. But it seems neither have been updated to work with 4.4.2. CF auto root is the only way i know right now to root and that roots the phone my installing a temporary custom recovery which trips knox. so as of now there is no way to root 4.4.2 without tripping knox.
