I picked up a G9600 and it has a knox enterprise certificate that configures the phone upon initial setup. It is not locked out yet and I can still return it but I’m also trying to figure this weird setup out and possibly clean it up. Rent-A-Center is renting phones that can be remote controlled by them, they supposedly buy them directly from Samsung like this. It’s very interesting!

To remove all of the knox and mdm stuff you have to do this:

Open Samsung Calculator and type in (+30012012732+, this will pop up drp mode, then type in the *#0808#, select DM+Modem+ADB, and hit reboot. You should now have ADB! (you have to do this same method after every reboot)


Once you enable ADB, then you can run these commands to disable knox enrollment center:

"adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.sec.knox.kccagent"

"adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.planetcellinc.ressvc"

"adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.absolute.android.agent"

"adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.sec.enterprise.knox.cloudmdm.smdms"

From here you can also now grant SystemUItuner adb permissions to disable animations and modify your status bar/quick settings. FYI, none of this will survive a reset.

Now all I have left to do is figure out how to enable developer options so that I can OEM unlock. I successfully got CROM app to unlock it, I just have no way to access the toggle. After 7 days the prenormal KG Status did go away.

EDIT: I no longer have the phone so I cannot continue digging into this. It worked on all version of Oreo, I never got to try it on Pie.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...php?p=78584395

I post this in January 3rd.

Maybe is not the full set of instructions, then you post the rest and now its a full solution (i think). I dont want credits or whatever, i just want to point you must link the info for reference. Videos, Posts and other stuff. If you post the link to the Youtube Video, can be useful.

The work of recopilation its yours, but the info is for all.

This is a community dude.

Your comment is the only one that I found after using THIS, obtaining ADB, and disabling knox. Yours wasn't complete so I posted a working solution, for the community dude.

If I do this on my Note 9 will I be able to flash a new firmware without being blocked by frp/mdm?

Hello, need a little help with a note 9 from RAC. I was able to get into phone by bypassing set up but I'm limited with what I can use do to samsungs knox modified by RAC. I tried the calculator method from this post by I't didnt work because of the limitations I suppose. Is there any way that you can grant root access to an app like file explorer from a PC to remove frp setting so that I can Odin flash an unmodified RAC firmware.

Yes I kind of got that but I figured it would be the same process and all on how disable samsungs modified by RAC Knox and as it seems to work for me on a temporary disable as listed etc. I know of some apps that need root access can be granted through a PC my question was in how to do that to try and change it through fike explorer. Has it been attempted?
