Hi Guys,

Yesterday I updated my phone via Odin to Oreo, but unfortunately samsung health says that my phone is rooted and it is not working anymore. ( Of course my phone is not rooted, I used stock firmware)
I think the problem is I used different region code firmware. Am I right? How can I use the app again? Wait for my original country's firmware and update via Odin would be a solution?

It detects Knox is 0x1. To fix this you must root your phone, go with root browser to the root of the device (/) then /efs. There you'll find a file "factory.prop". Open it and add there "ro.config.tima=0". Then you can unroot/reflash stock ROM and s health works

thanks for your quick reply, Is this a permanent change or can I fix this by flashing my phone's original country firmware? :confused:
Actually I don't want to root my phone as it has warranty till the end of this year..

Check in Download Mode, if it says Warranty Void 0x1 then it has at one time either been rooted or had custom flashed to it, in which case Warranty is void anyway and you might as well root

Yes! It is working now. You need to flash every stuff from the downloaded zip. Thankfully SamMobile attached everything you need.
:good::D
As I see a lot of people facing this issue,and all "expert " recommends root. But there are other options too.
Anyway, thank you for all help

Experts recommend root if your KNOX is 0x1 because that is the only solution, if you fail to read up on how to flash firmware and end up with a problem because of your own fault, and fail to mention in your main post that you didn't flash the firmware correctly, we are not psychic, we can only go on the info you give us


Next time, learn how to flash firmware the correct way first ;)

That's true, that was my mistake... in good old Times as I remember only AP was included in the ZIP,and that was enough.

Yep, with my S5 that was the method, but instructions for S7 are under the download on sammobile's site and all over this forum :)



As a rule when I get a new phone I spend a good few weeks reading threads before I attempt anything, even a simple stock flash, saves possible bricks and other problems like this one



Anyway good it's working again
