I have finally figured out a way to use Secure Folder with a rooted / knox tripped phone!
So far this is WIP, but I have tested it to work on an SM-G960F running April 2019 rom.
You will need a GNU/Linux machine to patch your system, but a flashable zip is coming soon.
Instructions (note these are github links, I can't post actual links):
  • Get the tool at nm111/knoxpatch2
  • Install dexpatcher. You can use DexPatcher/dexpatcher-gradle-tools
  • Install vdexExtractor and compact_dex_converter (both can be found at anestisb/vdexExtractor)
  • Run ./pull_files.sh
  • Run ./patch.sh
  • Copy out/services.jar back onto the device.
  • Edit build.prop and remove ro.config.iccc_version.
  • Now secure folder will work.
Proof coming soon.

I have done some research, and I think it is unlikely that a flashable zip would work, unless someone could get compact_dex_converter running in TWRP (it just segfaults). I added some more scripts to download and deodex services.jar. Also I have uploaded my own patched build PPR1.180610.011.G960FXXS3CSD1 services.jar at drive[.]google[.]com/file/d/1AW7urpwMzjj3gorumsmfMeu6qh3cxD6J/view?usp=sharing. BTW, this works perfectly as far as I can see. Could someone try it out and post what happens?

In theory, it should work on oreo, but I haven't tried it. You need to patch yourself though.

Eagerly waiting. The only thing stopping me from rooting is Knox tripper!!! Don't want to lose my last 6 months of warranty.

By the way, Wil this be universal and not processor specific? Curious me!

Samsung pass would probably never work as it checks the warranty status internally in the trustlet and just never allows storage of data if WB is blown. Samsung pay may work if I can bypass the signature check (I am working on it now).

You will still lose warranty if you root, this is just so you can use Knox apps.
It might work on other phones (i think that's what you mean), but I don't have any other phones so can't check.
