I bought a new S7 edge from a local website.. it came 100 % sealed but my Warranty void = 1 (0x0)
what does that mean exactly ?? I know about samsung knox tripping but it is not (0x1) and I'm not able to use MyKnox app
Why that happened ?? mine was 100 % sealed
by the way I do not have "2G" network option.. only 3G and LTE.. maybe someone with odin tried to flash modem for LTE bands in my country or something!!!?
is there any solution to make it back to "0" ?

Maybe a refurbished device? The box can be sealed easily again and the stickers are also not hard to reapply.

Installed this app, pretty usefu! One question I had though, does the option IMEI Backup act like a EFS backup? Like in the event I loose my IMEI, I can restore it using that backup?

1. I don't think so. You have to be rooted for the EFS backup anyway. One good tool is this ONE.
2. Take a look what @Tectas told you before. The same app that you installed can tell you if your device is refurbished or no (Image attached).

I thought that too but it is 100% sealed with nylon also!!
So download mode shows 0x0 and the phone info app shoes 0x1?...Definitely weird..... What about refurbishment check? Should say original..... Also I live in Alaska, USA and my carrier didn't catch on too quickly to the knox after the S4.... So when I received my S5, S6 they had put their own boot animation and flash a debloated rom on them.... Which tripped Knox.... Apparently someone told them about this cause when I got my S7 it was 0x0 and they didn't bother with putting their animation on the phone.... Maybe the phone you got was from a carrier and they tripped it by flashing something besides stock firmware?

Nope, it's an on/off indicator which can't be disabled once turned on
