[18/12] ROM I9205XXUCML1 (Whit KNOX) <> [16/01] New ROM I9205XXUCNA2 (How to Root)

New Rom at 18.12.2013 on SamMobile: I9205XXUCML1_I9205OXXCML2_I9205XXUCML1-TPH
New one today 16.01.2014 : I9205XXUCNA2_OXXCML4_XXUCNA2-TPH


Whit new bootloader. Confirmed whit KNOX.

After flash this Rom's I have this on Download Mode:

.....
KNOX KERNEL LOCK: 0x0
KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 1

Now... we must take care.
If we flash something like recovery, root... the Knox Warranty Void turn to 0x1. This flag at 0x1 is not reversible.

Like on another devices whit Knox I havn't trouble whit. My flag is already 0x1.

How I Root this Rom whit Knox bootloader and appl:

- First of all I have a appl superuser.apk (SuperSU v1.80) on extSdCard. For now I prefer this version.
- Flash by Odin the i9205-cwm-recovery.tar.md5.
- (For now I prefer the PhilZ-touch-recovery-6.0.4.6. Thanks @Phil3759). Reboot.
- Power off. On recovery by Power + Vol-up I flash the UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.80.zip from Chainfire. Thanks @Chainfire . Root but not Busybox.
- After reboot the SuperSU stop sometimes, it is installed on system/app and Knox not permit all access at system.
- Then, whit Explorer from Rom I go at extSdCard and touch on superuser.apk and install it. This way the apk is installed on data/app. Root solved.
- Now we can touch on icon SuperSU, this start and ask us to invalidate Knox. We must say Yes.
- Installed Busybox 1.21.1 of Stericson from Play Store. Verified whit "Root Verifier". It's all, we have all root now.

Next whit Root Explorer I delete all Knox apk + odex from system/app (see my post #4). Also superuser.apk from here, is not need on system/app.

My Mega I9205 work well now whit this Rom. My flag is 0x1, never mind.:)

EDIT1: All CSC on this Rom: BGL, BTU, CMF, COA, CRO, DBT, ETL, EUR, MSR, NEE, ORX, PHE, SEB, SIO, SMO, TPH, TWO, XEF, XEH, XEO

EDIT2: Read more about Knox on Post #12.

EDIT3: Links for Rom's ML1 and NA2 on Post #135

EDIT4: About the use of UPDATE-SuperSU-1.80 see Post #153.

EDIT5: For me all this work well. If You want make the same, make it at Your risk and responsibility, alright?

Because I'm a retired man I need my Mega I9205 for my personal use only. Not for Enterprise or Government working, then I don't need the hateful KNOX.
After customer recovery install and root access, the first thing I make is delete all apk and more from it (whit Root Explorer):

1 - From system/app I delete:
ContainerAgent.apk + odex
ContainerEventsRelayManager.apk + odex
KLMSAgent.apk + odex
KNOXAgent.apk + odex
KNOXAttestationAgent.apk + odex
KNOXStore.apk + odex
KNOXStub.apk
SPDClient.apk + odex

From system/containers I delete:
All .apk + .zip file and 2 apk inside subfolder framework

Wipe cache + dalvik on recovery and all work for me (not for Knox )

PS: I make the same always on another device that have also the Knox, is alright always.

.
Agreed.
Me too.
But my question was targeted only to warranty terms. With flag 0x1, you will lose them.
Sure it's not interesting for all users, but in case ...

It seems that KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0 or 0x1 refer to Samsung System Security KNOX. If 0x1 is not secure for peoples that work on Enterprises or Government using the phone, and not to personal warranty. Still on discuss about.

Always the KNOX: "KNOX WARRANTY VOID" ???

To know more about Knox read THIS

I quote the end:

Secure Android Platform

Samsung KNOX offers a multi-faceted security solution rooted in the tamper-resistant device hardware, through the Linux kernel and Android operating system. The first line of defense against malicious attacks, Samsung KNOX is currently approved to run on US Department of Defense networks. (If flag 0x0, my opinion).

    Hey People

    You want downgrade from ML1 to MJ2? ... Forget... alright? Forget that. I made a try and I never... never will repeat it. Uff.

    Look:

    To flash MJ2, on Odin3 v3.09 all well, finished (Success 1 / Failed 0).
    But on the Mega I had 3 red error lines:
    Set Warranty bit: kernel
    Set Warranty bit: modem
    Set Warranty bit: *******
    <-- not remember.

    Power to start, not start and on top screen new red message:
    Secure Fail: kernel

    Download Mode to try flash the recovery, I see this:
    ...
    Knox Kernel Lock: 0xffffffc
    Knox Warranty Void: 0xffffffc
    ....
    Flashed the Recovery but after not reboot, alway that "Secure Fail: kernel".

    I made a Mod whit ML1 kernel, flashed it and reboot ok on MJ2... but no modem, not base band. Normal. The Knox bootloader is always there and not accept the MJ2 modem. (All rom's before ML1 not had bootloader).

    On Recovery, after a full wipe, tried to restore a Rom MJ2 backup but not start, bootloop always.

    Now I was tired, finished whit this try and the risk to brick my Mega.

    Made:
    - Full Wipe data + cache + dalvik, format system

    New flash from ML1 and stay on there.

    In my last opinion:
    If You are whit ML1 not try downgrades, only upgrades.
    If You are whit MJ2 and like to root and more stay on MJ2, not upgrade.

    What hateful Knox !!!!

    PS: This is my response to all Members that ask how downgrade from ML1 to MJ2. Try it if You want.
