Maybe, but it is very risky and the method used may or may not depend on what type of device you have. What is your model number?

If I made changes to the vendor partition, I personally would so it through Magisk, using the mirror mount. This way, the worst case becomes removing Magisk and returning to stock.

Downgrade to Stock without Tripping Knox
Hi everyone at XDA.
I am fairly new to this and understand how to downgrade my phone. The Odin tutorial is almost spot on. My question are:
1) If I downgrade, will it trip knox?
2) If knox is tripped.. What does that potentially mean? What are the consequences? Other than warranty is void.
3) Which is my official stock firmware?
(Model Number: SM-G960F )
(Android Version: 9)
(Baseband V: G960FXXU6CSGD)
(Phone was bought in the UAE) If any other information is needed please let me know.

I have read countless threads on the forum but have come across multiple different answers regarding KNOX. If any one here knows 100%, please share. Also how do I find my stock firmware. I followed the Odin tut. which led to this page (firmwarefile.c0m/samsung-sm-g960f). The problem is it does not have the country for UAE. Which might be a noob thing to say but I don't know if that matters.

Thank you

First, I don't do Samsung so I'm reluctant to opine. I would personally hesitate to do this since there is a real chance of bricking.

Maybe the people in this thread will help.

I used these two guides to repartitioning a device with A/B scheme partition (Mi A2 Lite) to suit a GSI oversized but I didn´t need to touch vendor http://en.miui.com/thread-183258-1-1.html http://lunarixus.party/oxygenosguide/part

You can create your own re-PIT file(similar to what @Lanchon did for the S2 GT i9100) allocating your internal space to the partitions you want in the amounts that you want and flash the PIT file via Odin.

Yes, once made system apps, they will stay after unrooting.
