hello i have a sprint gs3 with the new 4.4.2 kitkat update and it is causing everything to force close. i am trying to root the phone and get a custom rom. i tried installing twrp using odin and it tells me it is invalid but i have a cwm recovery lte sprint gs3 v5 tar and it says it is valid i really want the twrp tho this is my first time rooting and dont want to mess anything up. i notice in the download screen it says my bootloader is enable is that going to be a problem and is rooting going to trip the knox? and how can i get knox off my phone?

thanks for the help sorry if this is the wrong place for this im new here

Hi! It seems you're in a sticky situation with the GS3, 4.4.2, root and Knox.

I found an excellent thread that has some good info about everything you've asked about. You could ask further questions there as well. But read it all very carefully!!


Good luck!!

Edit: also.... Knox FAQ: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2541343
