Did you see the picture in the post that was quoted?

It shows as rooted and knox efuse intact. So the warranty would still be good as long as it doesn't trip the efuse.

Look at the picture before telling me a generic answer. I already know that when the excuse is blown the warranty is lost. How do they have root without tripping the efuse?

the picture is a false negative.. magisk uses resetprop to change prop valuescon devices to try and "trick" apps that check for certain props by setting it to 0x0 on boot..

basically knox is still tripped but visually magisk itself makes it appear normal

dunno what L1 is but unlocking by itself doesnt trio knox, its custom firmware that trips it.. basically anything u do after unlocking lol

and netflix can still work.. its trivial for netflix

Unlocking bl changes wideline l1 to l3, which, sure netflix works, bit not in hd. Just saying what happens. There are workarounds, but a pita. My only reason for rooting anymore is to theme. Unfortunately samsung decided to leave out theme store AGAIN on the tab. Makes ZERO sense.

I see.. in ur post u just said L1 without context lol.. and yeah, I simply was saying Netflix will still work. In general anyways lol.

I rarely use the theme store so no biggie here lol

This is the galaxy tab s7plus thread, not the s20. WTF? Wideline is L3 when rooted on tab, and no hd on netflix. You cant compare different devices.

bro you are mistaken or dunno what ur doing

Well, i unlocked BL, the usual way, and patched the boot.img with magisk, and my tab s7plus had wideline L3. Maybe you can enlighten me what i did wrong? Im up for advice.

You are wrong . i have magisk v22 on stock Android 11 T875 (NO Twrp since for my model doesnt exist)
Tab S7 4G and Still Widevine L1

i unlocked Bootloader usual way and patched the whole AP file with Magisk 22 on my Tablet, then flashed it via Odin and My Tab S7 T875 has Widevine L1 and i can watch Netflix Hulu and Amazon Prime ( ALL IN HD). So what i think is u have to patch the AP file NOT the Boot file in Android 11.

The method of patching bootloader only worked in Android 10 for me not on Android 11

here is some proof for you. see the screenshots :p


if still not satisfied ill upload a video for you. Try Installing pure stock rom without twrp if you have installed twrp. and use complete AP file to patch with magisk and then flash via odin i hope it works for you. best of luck.

    1. I rooted my Note 4 phone and Note Pro 12.2 tablet some years ago. This blows an e-fuse on the main board, which prohibits Knox from working forever. Flashing back to stock can't "unblow" a fuse
    That's not quite true these days.
    Using Magisk to root doesn't "blow the e fuse".
    Rooting without installing TWRP will keep the warranty status 0x0 which is valid.

    BTW: Netflix ect. Works just fine.

    It's nice to see old Note 4 guyz around. I was very active in the sprint Note 4 forums years ago. IMO that was the very best phone samsung ever made. @tx_dbs_tx was a mad man of a developer for that device.

    Can anyone else confirm this?

    You loose warranty once device is rooted. No matter if with SuperSU or magisk. Root is root
