It seems like there is a cure and its not impossible.. Does this mean that all that crap that people said about a physical eFuse blowing up was debunked... Meaning we have hope!!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ


BTW sorry i forgot to mention.. It's for the galaxy note 3..😞

here's the link to the original thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2486346

Thanks in advance

I downloaded the tar and checked it's contents.

It's for the Exynos Note 3. Both files are only for that variant. (N900)

No one should try to cross-flash them in another device, it will most likely brick your phone.

I thought the exynos version doesn't have the fuse to trip Knox when rooting

ItΒ΄s sounds great. I think it's only a matter of time until this is available for the S5. Suppose Knox is an e Fuse, Samsung will not have the time to dismantle all devices to see if the fuse is really defective, or the Knox counter was emulated.

I own myself an I9505 without Knox counter, but have never had a reason to have to return my phone. Now, I also own a G900F with Knox 0x1 (after flash) and I think if this phone was built just as good as my i9505, then the counter can be no matter to me. Consider, I have my S4 certainly flashed to 100 times.

My phones are sacred to me.

Sorry for my "english".

That would be great. I will buy the S5 too. I need root, but don't want to lose my warranty.

So that would be great if there is also such a tool for the S5

So that's my question, is there really a physical fuse in there that blows when you trip the knox counter? I'm confused πŸ˜•...

Thanks in advance!

No one can really say for sure, but from what I gather for Qualcomm it's an efuse (HW), for Exynos it's not entirely clear.

The reset that was leaked is for Exynos variant - but it's a bootloader only for the N900 (Note 3 Exynos) - it cannot be used in other devices, no matter if they are Exynos-based as well.
