Default Towelroot then more battery drain?

So I just rooted my device with towelroot so I don't trip the knox counter.
All went well with the root process.
Let the phone reboot like it needed
Used the APK from chainfires zip to install supersu on the phone.
When I installed that I allowed it to update su and then disabled knox.
rebooted the phone and verified all was able to power up again okay.
Since doing that I notice that the phone is staying pretty warm without any use and screen off and is being held awake by the kernel. (according to gsam battery monitor)

Has anyone else noticed wake-lock or battery drain issues after rooting the phone with this method?

So far, so good for me. It's pretty much the same

Okay I will give that a try.
Worst case scenario I will try and master reset it.

Just happy to have full sd card access again and native tethering working in stock software. Plus ad blocking.

I don't think you will actually need to unroot it. About how long are you getting with your battery now?

I'm not even rooted and time to time my phone would get hot without me using it.. It's weird. Known issue or could this be a hardware issue?

That sounds more like there is a app going rogue or something. While there is a possibility it could be hardware, my bet it is more a software issue. When that happens to me I try to master reset and test without the applications for a little like I might with this if the battery issue don't clear up.

I actually did a master reset the second day I got my phone because the first time I messed something up with restoring some stuff from my iPhone using Smart Switch (don't know exact name) and my phone was getting hot even before and after the master reset.

Just want to clarify factory reset is the same as master reset right?
