Wow, Ok I thought there would be more haha. You said you were on a sm-p905, I wonder if this will go as smooth on an sm-p900. I'm on the wifi not lte version. Any guess?

Thanks for summarizing that though.

edit: seeing mixed results related to the Exynos chips from people's s4s and s5s. hmm.

Can you please tell more details about your SM-P905

AP, CP, CSC (These can be found at least on SM-P905 by opening dialer, then type *#1234#)
Kernel version (Settings - General - About device)

And for any else of you, if you try this method, report please how did it go, did you got root? did it trip KNOX flag and what firmware version you were using, thanks

SM-P900 On KOT49H.P900XXUANC4

Does not work, but did not trigger knox. So no harm no fowl. Shame, really got my hopes up.

Anyway, I pulled the trigger and tried this on my SM-P905, it kinda worked.. I'll post my device info later since I didn't have time for that, had to go to work just after rooting..

SM-P905
AP: P905XXUAND1
CP: P905XXUANA7
CSC: P905NEEAND1

Kernel verison: 3.4.0-1131235 (April 3 2014)

Okay then..
I installed and ran tr.apk
Then after reboot I checked recovery
KNOX Warranty Void: 0x0
System status: custom

Then I installed SuperSU (v1.94 if I remember right) from play store (and paid version also)

When I open SuperSU, it asks me to install binary. Since I got stock recovery, I can't use that option and instead choose normal way.
SuperSU says: install failed, please reboot your device

Anyway my device is rooted since Greenify and couple other root apps worked (and SuperSU asked to grand or deny access for those apps)

But because I cannot install that binary, I cannot open SuperSU to change settings etc..

There is v1.99r4(?) of SuperSU, but that is flashable .zip file, and how I'm supposed to install that with stock recovery. And I'm sceptic about flashing anything, in case of triggering KNOX.


Okay, as #snir2 said, I downloaded SuperSU from HERE (was v1.99r5). I unzip that and took Superuser.apk from there and installed it on my NP 12.2. After that SU updated binary using normal method like it should and everythings ok :P

And after all this odin mode still shows this:
System Status: Custom
KNOX Warranty Void: 0x0

Will do some tests tomorrow and if there comes anything interesting, I'll post some info..
