WARNING THIS IS A WIP AND SO FAR NO ONE HAS CONFIRMED THIS WORKING

Samsung pay and Knox is working after Rooting.


How is this possible?:confused:
well,
The loophole here is both Samsung pay and Knox apps check the kernel for knox status.
Developer of the Superman ROM and Superstock kernel @Tkkg1994 has modified his kernel to show knox status as 0x0 to Samsung Pay and Knox apps.

Steps to use Samsung Pay and Knox in your phone
Method 1:
1. Flash the latest Nougat BL, CP and CSC of your home country with odin.(only if ur country has samsung pay working. If not use files from the spay countries)
2. Flash TWRP
3. Download version 2.0 of Superman ROM. (Its not working in newer version I dont know why :( )
4. In aroma choose the included (ii) Superstock Kernel (ii)Samsung Pay (iii) Root with SuperSu.
(keep settings as close to stock as possible)
5. Install CSC of your country (The csc of a country which has samsung pay in it. Use korean CSC if just want to test)
6. Reboot. It takes time for setting up wait for 5-7 mins
7. Download the Latest version of samsung pay app and install it. (Download it now itself from playstore and save it somewhere)
8. Open Spay give it internet access. Sign in to ur samsung account from here and setup the app at same time.
(Some users are getting error connecting to server try again later message. So login to ur samsung account from the app. That way it wont show you error message)
9. Add your Card and make a purchase :p

Note: For this to work the bl,cp,csc must be of official spay released countries.. If you have installed only bl and csc or only csc it might not work..
So spoof ur existence properly into the country :p Make the app believe that you are from Korea/spain/US or any other spay country

Method 2:
This is from another user who got both Samsung Pay and Knox to work @NilayNoob

0. Install Stock Nougat rom (Use the firmware from a country where samsung pay is working)
1. Install TWRP.
3. Install latest superstock kernel. That's a must.
4. Root with supersu
5. Reboot
6. Install Samsung pay and my knox to get them working

Check out the screenshots.
Cheers.

@Tkkg1994 for his awesome Kernel and Rom

Where does it say on his forum that it supports samsung pay?
Yeah it doesnt.. but samsung pay works for sure.
Its just a finding. There arent any threads of samsung pay working on a rooted device.
So I just made one thats all.

It works. Believe me.. u need more screenshots of the proof?? I can give as much data as u want until u people are satisfied :) coz its working ;)

Which kernel do you use with superman ROM? If it didn't work with magisk than how did you root?
No magisk. Tried to keep settings as close to stock as possible. Rooted with supersu
Here are the details of kernel, csc etc etc.....

Register a card and go purchase something... then its fully working.

Sorry man that I cant do :( I am from India. And its not released here yet. I flashed korean csc along with the ROM to test this. So Im afraid someone from the samsung pay working countries have to confirm the actual purchase and provide u the receipt..

But I can confirm that you can add the card into the app successfully.. all the aspects of the app are working flawlessly. Whatever I click gets opened..

If the app wasnt working it wouldnt have even go past the setup page as it successfully did in the other custom Roms that I tried. Displaying the message "Your device has been modified in an unauthorised way. Please call our customer care service"

Well I confirm that the app successfully does everything in my knox flagged rooted phone running superman v2.0 Rom.

Changing csc doesnt affect the functionality of the app. In few months samsung pay is gonna be released in India, so they pushed samsung pay app officially along with the nougat firmware. Opening it says that they will be releasing it soon..
Flashed many roms and other roms doesnt even open/load the app

All Im saying is that, "The app in that particular ROM doesnt bother checking your knox status" and works flawlessly. I dont know what kind of tweaks made this change to the system and the app. The developers only has the idea to get to end of it. I am just a flash junkie.

Im happy that It works in my phone and can successfully use it when samsung pay is released in my country :)

Its up to u guys to believe me or not.
I gave u the proof. If u are tempted give it a try.
If u are not ignore it.
Anyway I got what I wanted from this Rom.

Cheers everyone..
I have my university exams in 14hrs. let me go and prepare till then:p

I used Samsung Pay in India to pay for almost everything. But the thing is you wont be able to register your Indian Bank's Credit card on Samsung Pay. If you have access to any US based credit card then give it a try. It's fun to look at the faces of clueless merchants trying to figure out how I paid with a mobile device. Btw nice find I might try to root now but need more confirmation of it working in stores/while paying.

EDIT: wait you said you can add a card, then just try to pay with it coz it will work on any credit card machines out there (even the some of the smaller ones).

It shows only korean banks name( since im using korean csc)
If I install Indian csc it say we will be releasing it soon in your country..

May be someone can try with DBT csc. Or even US AT&T csc, which I think is available for rooted phones?
I tried with DBT csc. It tells me that Samsung Pay is not available in my region but it will be available soon. I also tried Korean CSC and BTU CSC neither worked.

Any suggestions?

Yeah superman ROM doesnt have Knox installed..

When I shared this samsung pay working method to @NilayNoob, he experimented with his phone and got both samsung pay and knox working too using stock rooted firmware...

If u need working knox, then follow his steps (method2)

Its a hit or miss gamble...
Do a complete wipe and set it up as I said..
CSC plays a major part in having a working samsung pay !!!
Try samsung pay when your country has s pay released
