Hi,

My N9005 is rooted on 4.3 currently, am I able to flash directly to 4.4.2 and root it without tripping Knox?

Thanks.

Go into settings, on the last tab (general) , scroll down to security, enter:

Make sure the following are unchecked:
  • Reactivation lock
  • Unknown sources
  • Verify apps

Next, enter Change security level, and check normal.

Do a reboot.

Thanks.

As long as you update to a ROM built before 03 June 2014, yes.

My current ROM is
Version: Android 4.3
N9005XXUBMJ1

And the version I'm going to is:
Version: Android 4.4.2
Changelist: 1703205
Build date: Tue, 20 May 2014 11:34:14 +0000
Product Code: XSP
PDA: N9005DXUENE4
CSC: N9005OLCENE5
MODEM: N9005DXUENE3

So it will not trip right?

I can't confirm TowelRoot works on that ROM, as it is one that I never flashed. Also that ROM seems to have different CSC than your current ROM. Where did you buy your note? Cause the XX is usually a marker for unlocked Europe. Also what CSC do you have?

PS: you can try and asking here, maybe someone flashed that ROM, and can confirm that TowelRoot works.


Late EDIT:
A friend flashed the N9005DXUENE4, and TowelRoot, worked just fine.

See if this will solve the Custom status. Please reply here if it does. Thanks!

Wiping cache partition does not help. System status - "Custom"
After looking for installed programs discovered one. In my case, it was "USSDDualWidget" - root prog with its own service.
After removing it status became "Official" again.

So, freezing system apps, installing SuperSU or TitaniumBackup don't affect the System status, but try to search with app affect in Your case.
