KG state defination: Knox Guard aka KG is a state which gets Prenormal on the devices which have unlockable bootloader, it's effect is OEM button disappears. The following guide is to turn the state to Checking which then make OEM button appear. The guide does not work on US models because they does not allow bootloader to be unlocked.

Hi i want to tell all of you concerned about how to bypass KG: Prenormal aka "only official binaries are allowed to be flashed"

Note Note Note: You have to keep Wifi Connected!!

1: Connect device to Wifi

2pen developer options( tap build number 7 times)

3:You will see there is no OEM button but do not worry

4:Go back to home screen and go again to developer options do this 3-4 times and you will be greeted with OEM button. Hurrah!

Important NOTE: If After trying the loop of going to developer options and homescreen several times does not show OEM button for you then Go to settings-Apps-Show system-Settings App-Clear Data.
Now open developer options and do the loop of going to developer options and homescreen you will see OEM Button and in Bootloader KGrenormal will be KG:checking and you could flash unofficial binaries

** I have tried this on dozens of Samsung phones including S9+ on Android 10

Yes it works all of you any problem comment below i will help.

Worked
It worked for me
What you basically have to do is to connect wifi and go to developer options then back to homescreen then to developer options for about 5 to 15 times depending.

For me it took 8 times, but it worked for me.

Thanks man.

Whats left how improbable, must be the cause.

It seems some folks are open and shut case. Cool your fire doubledragon5 this ain't spam. It is just simple connect to a wifi network wait 4-5 seconds tap build number 7 times head to developer options and then tap home button and come back to homescreen after that again go to developer options and then to homescreen, keep doing this for 5-6 times or more, eventually OEM button will show up and KG state will be changed to Checking. It is not a rocket science.

Tried 30 time, still no OEM unlock. Do you have to turn dev options off then on each time?. OP still Full of ship.

To make it clear; it is for skipping KG state. It does not make US versions bootloader unlockable. It skips KG state on versions which have unlockable bootloader. The confusion should rest now.

That should have been mentioned in the OP. So basically this doesn't do anything for me anyways. That's because I have the US version with the unlockable boot loader.

It should also work for j2, did you try going into Apps tap show system apps and look for settings app clear data of settings app again tap build number 7 times go to developer options and home repeatedly. It can also take 10 tries.
