Created this bounty thread hoping to find a way to reset our KNOX counter to 0x0. It's great that @designgears and @Chainfire found a way to root without tripping the Knox counter, but unfortunately a lot of us have already voided our warranty using the old way.

I know it's a long shot and almost impossible (as far as we know) to reset the Knox counter, so I'm hoping there's a dev out there that would be willing to give this a shot and see if it can be done. I'm sure there are tons of people out here in the xda community who would like to have their mind at ease knowing that their warranty will still be good when they need their phone serviced.

So I'll start off with donating $20 to the first person that finds a way to reset the infamous knox flag!

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been able to update this thread. I've been really busy with work and my family. Any time I have to go on XDA is simply just checking up on some PM's and maybe some quick browsing. When I get the chance (hopefully soon) I will update the OP with some missed donations that I have missed. I don't even know what the update is on this whole KNOX fiasco. What I do know, is that was 4.4.2 came out, KNOX was updated to 3.0. I would assume that finding a solution is probably harder than ever.

I've got a strong feeling that KNOX will end up winning 😭. But we'll never know if we don't try.

I was wondering how they can make knox irreversible.

One idea i came up with is there could be a piece of hardware that is triggered, irreversibly by maybe destroying it.

Does anyone else think it could be linked to hardware?

40$ here.
My counter is still 0x0, but not for long as I'm tempted to just flash everything beyond control

THe knox flag is an EFUSE, you will NEVER be able to reset it back to 0. It is PHYSICALLY destroyed in the S800 chip and there is no way to change that fact. The best you can hope for custom bootloader that fakes the flag. But they will always be able to check the flag.

There is no concrete evidence that it is an e-FUSE.
All is speculation.

The speculation is that KNOX is using an E-FUSE. chainfire has said everything he can tell its an e-fuse. The S800 has at least 1 E-FUSE register that I know of and I think maybe 4 total.
