This triggered Knox warranty void for me. I'm not too bothered to be honest. Using Snapdragon Variant, so I'm not sure what I did incorrectly.

Hi all,

So i have a new N3 now because there was something wrong whit my screen.
I rooted it and restore it back to official rom and all went well Knox still on 0x0

This new Note have other ap/csc/cp files
The first Note was on UBMJ1
This is one is on

AP......XXUBM17
CP.....UBMM16
CSC ..PHNBM12

I see the files in OP
My Note see a update that I not installed yet.
Must I first take that update or not.
Is it save for me to root now?
Whit out set the Knox

DON'T !!!!! Read some more before making a choice.
You're already rooted... what do you need more?

Hi,
I updated from MJ1 to MJ3 using
N9005XXUBMJ3_VEGA.tar.md5
and
N9005AUTBMJ3_CSC.tar.md5
1) I had SuperSu Pro set to Survival mode before flashing.
2) What I did before flashing was to Reset from settings mode. Then once it erased everything I booted to stock recovery and then again erases everything.
3) I flashed custom rom as described by Designgear in his first post.
4) After final booting I installed Android Tuner to freeze knox stuff.
5) Finally I installed Xposed Framework xposed.installer_v21_77.apk then installed framework from within and then rebooted
6) Installed Wanam Xposed and registered it and Android tuner as Modules. Rebooted
7) from within Wanam Xposed -> security hacks switched on fake system status.
Rebooted and now it shows when going to download mode that it is Official.

Cheers

I finally decide to update to MJ3.
I follow this steps with the exception on the 2 step.
I didn't reset anything.
Maybe because of that I lost root even with SuperSu Pro set to Survival mode before flashing.
So I had to root again.
I'm not freezing any Knox apps.
And everything is working fine.

I did this a long time ago but not sure what happened to my csc.

Dialling *#1234# gives me:

AP: N9005XXUBMJ1

CP: N9005XXUBMJ1

Can I flash the MJ3 without worrying about the CSC? The MJ3 posted here comes with the unpatched bootloader therefore knox would still remain at 0 x 0 right?

I did with the steps described and it worked for me.

Congrats
step 2 is being on the safer side. I use Android Tuner to move many of Samsung provided apps which I think are junk or freezing them.
I consider erasing as precaution as design gear has written that flashing would erase everything so why not?
"Warning: This will wipe your data and internal sdcard, this will show custom system status. I cannot be held responsible for anything you do to your phone, rooting is optional, I am not forcing you to do it."

Knox in my case complains when I try to see logs from the device using Android Tuner.

I updated from rooted MJ1 to rooted MJ3, but I still have the MJ1 radio.
I thought I would get the MJ2 (which, from what I understood, has a better radio signal).

Did anybody tried to patch the radio firmware alone (was posted here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=46789952&postcount=58 ) ?
Will it trigger the knox flag ?


Cool, I asked for this modem about 20 pages back....thanks for linking it.

But yeah, same question...will flashing a modem only, trigger knox? Who whats to be first to find out? :D

Ya, plug it in, try to flash something and let me know how it goes ;)

I did already flash the things I mentioned in my post - on Ubuntu 13.10.

TWRP did bootloop me a couple of times but then it all worked.

Non-stock kernels bootloop me though using both TWRP and CWM - hltecan and hltetmo kernel variants - but my guess is that the issue there is in the kernel's sphere of influence since I have yet to see any posts anywhere of someone with a n900w8 flashing any kernel successfully.

No I was not, the first note yes it was. Because my new Note3 have different firmware and I didn't no if I get a problem I asked this.

But thank you for your very very friendly feedback!

Sorry if It came out this way but it wasn't the intent....
my intention was simply trying to prevent you from Knoxing the Note3.
I did an update on my SM-N900W8 after I rooted the phone and had to re-run the VEGA file in the root folder to regain root but in the process, I've lost the Official status and haven't been able to get it out of custom status.
I still have Knox 0x0 and simply waiting till someone come out with a decent rom only having thetering and WiFi Hot spot unlocked and ill be a happy camper.
Everything else can be added on using modules.

Sorry, once again.

    Root de la Vega
    By @designgears & @Chainfire

    First off, a big huge thanks to Chainfire for his SuperSU app and help getting root setup manually.

    Warning: This will wipe your data and internal sdcard, this will show custom system status. I cannot be held responsible for anything you do to your phone, rooting is optional, I am not forcing you to do it.

    DO NOTE TAKE OTA UPDATES OR UPDATE WITH STOCK ODIN FILES THAT CONTAIN BOOTLOADER UPDATES!!

    How To Enter Download Mode
    Method 1: adb reboot download
    Method 2: Pull the battery out, unplug the usb cable, reinsert the battery. Hold Volume Down + Home + Power. Follow the instructions on the screen.

    IF YOU HAVE REACTIVATION LOCK ON, TURN IT OFF!
    Go to Security Settings and turn the reactivation lock OFF, this is just a precaution.

    Rooting Instructions
    Remove the external sdcard (if you have one)
    Boot into bootloader mode (see methods above)
    Load the correct AP file into the AP slot in Odin (find your AP version in post #2)
    Load the correct CSC file into the CSC slot in Odin (find your CSC version in post #2)
    Click start in Odin, wait for it to fully flash
    Let your device fully boot after flashing has completed
    Copy the contents of Root_de_la_Vega.zip to the root of the internal storage
    • /My Computer/[Phone Name]/Phone/
      • root_de_la_vega.sh
      • root_files (folder)
    Reboot (very important!)
    After fully booting delete the files from the internal storage that were added previously
    • /My Computer/[Phone Name]/Phone/
      • root_de_la_vega.sh
      • root_files (folder)
    Reboot (extremely important!)
    Reinsert the external sdcard (if you have one)

    That's all! Enjoy Root!

    Question & Answer

    "Root de la Vega" What kind of name is that?
    It's named after Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T Mobility.

    Can I flash custom recovery/kernel without tripping KNOX flags?
    No.


    Will this set a tripped KNOX flag 0x1 back to 0x0?
    No.


    Can you help me with the drivers?
    No, but you can head over here for help with drivers.

    How do I get into download mode?
    Method 1: adb reboot download
    Method 2: Pull the battery out, unplug the usb cable, reinsert the battery. Hold Volume Down + Home + Power. Follow the instructions on the screen.

    Will rooting or downgrading or flashing stock trip the Knox flags?
    No, KNOX flags will not be tripped!

    Will root survive a factory reset?
    Yes, it does.

    Do I need have to fully wipe my phone when rooting?
    Yes. If you don't you will get lots of nasty force closes. I have yet to find a way around it.

    Does Xposed Framework work?
    Yes, it has been updated to work fully with the Note 3.

    Will rooting report system as custom and display an unlocked lock on the initial boot screen?
    Yes. It can be removed by installing Xposed Framework with Wanam Xposed and enabling Security hacks > Fake system status.

    Titanium Backup is giving me problems, how can I fix it?
    Check out this thread. If you are still having issues, please take your concerns to the dev, they are not related to rooting.

    How do I open a 7z file?
    With 7zip or IZArc!

    Can I do this on OS X/Linux?
    No, not until heimdall is updated to support the Note 3.

    Can I unroot?
    Yes, use SuperSU full unroot option or flash stock.

    I am getting a "Prevention Information" popup after running a root app, how do I disable it?
    From terminal emulator or adb shell as root, run; pm disable com.sec.knox.seandroid
    Or freeze the Knox apps with Titanium Backup.

    I am getting Force Closes after flashing, how can I fix it?
    Make sure you are flashing the CSC file! If you are, try flashing AP and CSC separately.

    HELP! I flashed N9005XXUBMJ3_N9005OXABMJ1 and now I am stuck in download mode! What do I do?!
    You are mostly going to trip the KNOX Warranty at this point.
    Flash this AP N9005XXUBMJ3_N9005OXABMJ1_BTU_RECOVER.tar.md5 (2.05 GB) and this CSC N9005OXABMJ3_CSC.tar.md5 (38.0 MB)
