    I have a question regarding this method. I've read through the thread, and I'm still a little unsure about whether or not knox 0x1 is tripped at all throughout this process. Even loading custom ROMs via SS does not trip Knox? Is this because the original ROM is never touched? I just bought my N3 the other day and did the OTA update. (What a noob, I know)

    And maybe slightly off topic but I've seen conflicting answers. When Knox 0x1 is tripped, is the device prevented from receiving further OTA updates?

    Knox is disabled on the Note 3 (period.) More so with the US carriers as it conflicts with the security of NFC, which all the carriers are working on some type of Wallet strategy whether Google wallet is going to win the ballot or if ISIS is going to win, or if something else is going to the claimed champ. The fact of matter is that Knox is disabled it is 0x0, there is nothing to worry about, in order to get it enabled it would take a system update which we would of course all know about and see coming, as rarely anything sneaks up on us here. So Flash away!

    When I open SU I get the following pop up

    "Samsung KNOX has been detected. This might limit root capabilities and cause annoying popups. Try to disable KNOX?"

    I have just hit "Cancel" because I've been afraid to mess with KNOX. If KNOX has been disabled (and I am certainly not questioning that) why is SU telling me that it has been detected? Is it safe for me to tell SU to try to disable it? Thanks.

    I allowed it to try. As KaChow said, KNOX is already disabled, so it shouldn't do any harm. When I allowed SU to try to disable it, SU simply stated that it succeeded, and that was the end of that. I checked my system afterwards and I didn't see anything triggered by KNOX.

    Just as J_Ransom2 points out and as I've mentioned before Knox is disabled on our Note 3. This is not the case on other Samsung devices in the terms of Knox and how it works on other devices and also how SuperSU posts consumer warnings. Fortunately, for us we do not have those Knox concerns, instead we have others pertaining to SELinux... After you get Root, make sure to get Safestrap. BKDodger posted a few good YouTube links a couple of posts ^^^^, check'm out. :)

    [OP] Has been Updated. I have added the latest zips of SuperSU which is version 1.80 if you have Root and do not have a copy, Please download and store this version as it has been updated for KitKat 4.4.

    Also, Special thanks to BKDodger for his contribution to the thread with 2 Safestrap videos for Users, one video shows how to use use Safestrap the other shows how to install ROMs. Please make sure to visit this Root thread watch the videos, and enjoy your Verizon Note 3!:biggrin:

    In the op you mention getting rid of kingo and installing genuine root. I don't understand what you mean by that?

    I do not intend to try custom roms because they will trip Knox and void warranty. That said, is there any advantage in using safe strap and changing to genuine root?

    During kingo process must I allow installation of mkt camera?

    At the original time of this post Kingo was considered very unreliable, in fact it still is not a truly a trusted source, but instead it has grown into a dependable source for Root. Kingo extracts information during the Root the process and for many this violation of privacy is not something any of us enjoy especially when our IMEI# is part of that extraction and who knows where this information goes. To explain the meaning behind the kingo root and replacing it with a genuine root. Think about the movie Ace Ventura Pet Detective. Think of the moment when Jim Carrey has just discovered that Detective Einhorn is a "Man" and he is swallowing tubes of toothpaste and burning his clothes. With Einhorn and Kingo the damage has already been done, but with SuperSU we can wipe the slate clean, that is burn down/sanitize and replace completely replace Kingo Root with a Geniune new Root copy in fact so perfect in form that it performs Chainfire's command for root- which is Root in it's purest form (can't get more Genuine than that.)

    Now, if you want to proceed with root you must follow this thread as the Firmware has been updated from first MI9 to MJ7 to MJE, the link is here. I would recommend going through Steps 1-3 in that thread, Safestrap has been updated to version 3.70 which I happen to like the update as it performs better even in the Beta that it is. Creating backups are important, the reason is backups are essentially ROMs, the difference is that they contain all of your settings and the data that stored on them. While I certainly understand the concern about Custom ROMs, there is a greater concern that is often overlooked. If you plan to do any customizing to your stock ROM it is much better to customize a Custom ROM, then a System ROM. System ROMs are used for Updates, if something is missing or not configured correctly you can spend hours fixing it. Use a custom ROM that you can play with change, do whatever you want with, if it breaks, your system will not break, because you have a System ROM, but if you break your System ROM then you will have problems.

    Last, I'm not sure what you mean by the "mkt camera"?

    Over at xda some posters have said that during the installation process in kingo a warning popped up saying mkt camera is a threat then asked if they wanted to continue. If you say no king installation fails.

    Are you sure kingo still collects imei? I thought they stopped doing that.

    I have never been rooted and I am already MJE. The link seems to be for updating to MJE. Can't I use Kingo with MJE just as you described in this thread?

    Good, I wasn't sure of what version you were on since you responded to my MJ7 thread, I assumed you had MJ7 as your latest firmware that's why I mentioned MJE. Anyhow, I just checked Kingo's software still in version 1.1.6. which still means it collects IMEI. This is the same version that I used a few weeks ago, I didn't get a camera and I ran Kingo twice. Kingo is suppose to stop collecting the IMEI in version 2.0, which they said that back in October when they were in Version 1.1.5 they move very slow with updates, they are however working on Unlocking Bootloaders. Which my guess is they will stop pulling the IMEI from the Root Process and start pulling the IMEI from the Unlocked Bootloader process, go figure right! Kingo does work with MJE, you'll have no problems with it, my advice to you if you are new to Root and would like to learn more read through my [TOOLS] here and read about my [TOOLS] in here...

    I wish they would just charge 10 bucks and stop stealing info. It creeps me out. I have secure material on my phone and I wouldn't want them to get it or even worse, clone my phone. XDA is allowing discussions and I think links to Kingo now so I thought they had removed the spyware.

    The thing is they may have reopened the discussions because this is something that needs to be discussed and not simply closed off. That's not to say that some jerk off Moderator on XDA is going to decide to close the discussion anyhow because that is how the politics work on XDA and one of the main issues I have with that forum. As it is there are so many violations of our Privacy that take place right now without our knowledge or our consent. Whether it is the Government spying on us or it is Google consuming everything we do with our devices from the moment we turn our device on an make a phone call to the second we browse a web page, or respond to an email or whatever, and of course that information is being shared with and Supporters. I'm sure you are aware that Google knows every single WiFi password, and of course on a Google device they know the IMEI and all your private information and how it is used, they can show us when and how we use it, perhaps for what reason, there is a lot of Power that takes place with the violation of Privacy that we don't really know about. When it comes to Kingo, I know that the software version is 1.1.6 which was released in October, this was also when the IMEI flag was raised, this software does pull the IMEI, I have read in PR releases that Kingo does not use the IMEI it is just a set of digits extracted within the code upload. Whether this is true or not, I'm not really as concerned, I know this seems strange. See I view this as "awareness" if something down the road comes up and bites me about my IMEI and I find it's because of Kingo, I can say I was at least aware of this. It is the other threats and acts of violation of my Privacy that I am more concerned about, this does include Google, because I don't know who Google is sharing my information with, same as the Government I don't what they are looking at, what they want or who it is being shared with. At least with Kingo there is some "transparency", it doesn't make it right, but it is better than nothing.
