I don't know much about the note series, still you can give a go. When i tested with Note 3 (Running Cyanogen 13) it failed.

It works well with -
S4 [ Stock ROM]
S5 [ TWRP Recovery ]
J5 & J7 [ Not yet tested, but supposed to run]

Let me know if it worked on Note 2.

Tell us the version of the firmwares you suceeded already.

I could test it but

Selinux is already in permissive
No knox sdk is present
Only thing knox is triggered but

Even if i reset it ,after that when i flash new rom the knox will get triggered again?

Edit: note have exynos processor,which one you have on your s5?

I am working on a detailed list. I will publish it within next week after performing some more tests.
If you flash new rom, KNOX will get triggered.
But a single click, and it will return to 0x0.

Rest assured. I will provide a detailed list within next week :cowboy:

I bricked my Note 3 running stock rom while using this app.
That's the reason i'm telling everyone to use this app with extreme caution.

I am sorry @gencho81 i thought you were using Note 2.
Anyways, you will lose the system partition completely and even the efs partition.

If you are running Note 2 , try it.
If Note 3, DONT GO FOR IT.

I didn't get you. Do you mean 'What will happen if we flash stock rom, will KNOX say 1 or 0?' Is this the question or what?

:)
No
So if we are running custom rom with root and Busybox and we use the app it will remove Knox sdk and reset Knox readings. But what will happen if after using the app and assume Knox bit is 0 we flash stock rom. After flashing stock rom it will add again Knox sdk and maybe the readings before your app (Knox bit 1).

Yes it will add knox sdk and mess with everything. But if you use the app again, you can reset the counter (if device is supported) easily.

but even if stock rom trip it again what's the point of doing it on first place?
To use it you need root>to have root you must have custom recovery>to have custom recovery means Knox bit set up to 1.
Here is the question-after flashing complete stock rom and use the app. If you unroot it, remove Busybox and flash back stock recovery what will happen with Knox bit.
Second- why if working on s5 it's not working on Note? can you fix it?
As we know from before Knox bit is secure bootloader related. It was reset on Exynos Note 3 with service bootloader flash. What is actuality your app doing?

    If app says cant reach KNOX, there is a fix Read on

    1.Set SELINUX to Permissive
    2. If KNOX isn't tripped, download My KNOX From Play Store
    3. If still not working, flash stock ROM.

    It should work by now.

    App says Cant gain Root access
    1. Reinstall SUPERSU
    2. Ensure Busybox is present in /system/bin
    3. Flash CF Auto Root if required
    4. If app still can't gain root access, flash STOCK ROM and retry...


    App Crashes on " Disable KNOX"

    Most probably, your KNOX Counter has been Resetted but the SDK could not be removed.

    1. Reinstall and try agian



    App failed to configure

    1. No internet access
    2.Internal Error

    To fix,
    1. Turn on Internet
    2. Reinstall App




    Thank you!

    ( I am extremely busy building the better version so sorry that i cant reply)

    PS - Thank you everyone for donating as it helps a lot in the project.
