Hello Galaxy S4 users.

I recently bought a Galaxy S4 Black Edition.
After going through all Knox and warranty related posts I was not able to make up my mind to root.

So I called up the Samsung Customer Care for clarifying my doubt's.

The representative cleared that Knox has nothing to do with warranty(at least on India) and even if the counter increases to 1 warranty will not be lost.

Only if device status is unofficial then only we loose warranty and flashing stock firmware through Odin resets it to official(telling through personal experience with Tab 3 on 4.2.2)

I have no intention of using Knox and so want to root it.
Yet I would like to know if there is any method to root 4.4.2 without increasing the counter.

Thanks in advance.

You can try to ask on the official towelroot thread if anyone has successfully got it working on that firmware.. or instead, you can email geohot for help
