Hi Ninomaxx,

The Knox 0x1 that you see doesn't lock or block you from doing anything. It's only there to tell the carrier/manufacturer that you have modified your software, thus losing your warranty. Other than that, it doesn't do anything else. To root your device, I suggest you search the forums, you'll find a guide, I'm sure.

EDIT : I found one post for you (but you can find other posts too) : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2466423

One more question, can I update OTA after I root my device. And any change in my bootloader? Such as change from "Official" to "Custom" ????

Thanks,

Bootloader is "upgraded" when you flash stock 4.4 over 4.3.

And your warranty doesnt necessarily get voided because, if youre in the EU, statutory law dictates that service centres have to prove that the malfunction was directly caused by us changing or modifying system software. This is statutory law in the EU only. See here https://fsfe.org/freesoftware/legal/...evices.en.html

If the rom youre on supports OTA then yes. official samsung updates wont work as they detect the system status.

That's my considering. My System Status = Official. I am worrying about after i root my device, the system status change to "Custom" ==> my device cannot update OTA anymore.

So The "System status" change to Custom after I root my device?????

Correct. Then you wont receive official samsung updates. However, if you switch roms then devs will update their base as and when a new base becomes available. So in heinsight you're not really missing out on anything because you're getting the update plus more so I guess in this case (if you root) you get more for your money

Try this :

1. Odin back to original stock (if you're already on stock, ignore this step)
2. Odin to root your device (TowelRoot or Root de la Vega)
3. Install Xposed Framework + Wanam Xposed, then in "Security hack" choose "Fake system status" (this will change your OS to "Official")
4. Reboot twice, Enable SuperSu Pro, check the Survival Mode option
5. Install the OTA update.
6. Disable Survival Mode in SuperSu Pro.

This should get you OTA updates AND root. Enjoy

Let me know how it went.
