I really love this guide. It should open the doors for all the developers to change their ROMs so everyone can enjoy custom ROMs w/o tripping the KNOX counter.

PS: It would be nice if you could make a guide/tutorial with what we should modify in a rom to make it work with mobile odin.

I will make a tutorial in next days :)

To make a rom that doesn't trip Knox counter, you need to have a custom recovery and this results in the loss of warranty

I was talking about making the ROM Mobile Odin Friendly, so you could flash it w/o tripping the counter.
It's a good idea but I don't think that devs would agree because to make a ROM Mobile Odin friendly, you have to delete all vrtheme and it result in an increase of zip file. A good idea could be that devs could make two ROMs: one for custom recovery and one for Mobile Odin

    I'm working hard since August for you. I know that you appreciate a lot my work, I opened a new world to you, the modding world. I gave you the chance to do modding on your device without void your warranty. I bought some additional space on Google Drive to upload ROMs. Please, support this project, offer me a beer!
    Donators will have their names listed in first page. :)

    Imperium ROM is finally online!
    Imperium ROM bring with itself a lot of changes and new way to flash ROM without tripping Knox. The most relevant changes are:
    1) For the first time in this project, I changed the classic installation script with the Aroma Installer. So you can now choose which mods to install and which not.
    2) Now the kernel is flashed automatically during installation.
    3) No more wipe /data, wipe /cache, wipe dalvik from Mobile Odin. Now, you can choose in Aroma whether to wipe /data or not.


    Other technical changes:
    1) Henceforth all ROMs that I will update, will have the same structure of Imperium ROM. So, I updated the guide and before to flash any ROM, you should read it again.


    P.s. Before to install Imperium ROM, please check the MD5.
