I know there is a lot of discussion about KNOX, but no answer.
The only helpful topic is : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2514703
I dont give a damn about KNOW Void Warranty. My warranty is voided (0x1) and I dont really miss it, or try to reset it. I just want to remove some junkware from my phone.

Is it SAFE / OKAY to DELETE the following applications?
I allready deleted preloadinstaller.apk

Applications with Root Browser:
Parent Folder/
knox_data

System/
KnoxAttestationAgent
KnoxSetupWizardClient
MobileTrackerEngineTwo
SecurityLogAgent
SecurityManagerService
SecurityProviderSEC
SLocation

IS it SAFE / OKAY to UNINSTALL / FREEZE the following applications?
Titanium Backup:
KMLS Agent 2.4.503
KNOX 2.3.0
KNOXSetupWizardClient 2.3.0
Security policy update .... SPD...v2_1411_2_1

Please, no speculations. Has anyone deleted these?
Will all applications come back after system restore / recovery restore?

Thank you.
