That is the key to knox reset.
PS : I had done all this steps on ND1 firmware, and this will not keep root access, to root Knox has to be tripped. Also to note this might get (patched) in future updates (bootloaders) if we look at Samsung's history of patching stuff , though not sure about it...
This will not work on any variant other than Exynos (Note 3) due to different processors and the boot system of both Exynos and Snapdragon. (the file for resetting Knox (Exynos) contains Sboot which is only for the Exynos variant which cannot be used on Snapdragon as it uses Aboot). So this is by no way meant to work on SD variant or any other Samsung device ie S5/S4/Note 2 etc. and hence requested NOT TO USE IT on any other model than Exynos Note 3.
Hello @RuchRha--I saw you on another thread and tracked you down to this one--it has been reported that flashing Root using CF-Root, to a Canadian N900W8, was possible to do without compromising KNOX warranty counter-- do you know whether the same applies to SM N900 variant?
Apologies if this has been asked./answered but couldn't find reference to the answer.
Quick question to have a more complete view on where things are - I do not have the N900 and I know little about it so the question might already not be a problem there but it certainly is on N9005 - can you also downgrade the firmware after you write the knox-reset piece?
To anyone who wanted to try this knox reset tool.
I can confirm the method by @RuchRha that it definitely valid and I done it myself on N900 ND1 Firmware. I'm now very happy rooting my phone and will be able to get full warranty when needed.
However, this method will WIPE YOUR INTERNAL SD. So make all the necessary backup before reset knox.
There's ND2 Firmware released, can anyone confirm that this method still work or not ?
I hope it's not a patched to prevent knox reset.
