It placed the stock recover on the cell.
I then went to Download Mode, and installed Clockwork Custom Recovery via Odin, and it works fine.
I can even install a custom ROM like JellyBomb if I want to, but that would bring me down to Android 4.1.2
So at this point, I don't know what Knox does on this particular cell phone.

My story was very simple. I've upgraded to stock 4.3 version at the end of december didnt like it and tried to downgrade using official 4.1.1 and odin 3.07. All went fine except that I was not able to connect to gsm network. So I flashed modem part which i took from stock 4.1.2 rom and now i am able to connect to gsm network. There are few side effects left - famous knox warranty void flag and my phone state set to custom and download counter is set to 1. I've tried to root 4.1.1 and use triangle away for this. Triange away was able to reset my phone to official state and it was able to reset custom download flag but only till first full phone boot. After that i have the same custom state again. Is it possible to reset this counter at all now? And i was not able to enter stock recovery mode right after i rooted my phone One more side effect - i'm still with the latest bootloader which has knox So end of my story - I unrooted the phone, reflashed it with 4.1.1 using odin again, flashed working modem and think what to do next

Hmm. There are a couple of things here that are confusing me. If you flashed 4.1.1 in Odin, that should have restored you to an unrooted state with the stock recovery. It should also replace the kernel, which includes the Knox bootloader. But if you can flash a modem you clearly have a custom recovery (CWM, TWRP, etc.). And if you can run Triangle Away, you're still rooted, becase it won't run on an unrooted device. As long as you're rooted, the download counter will reset to 1 every time you reboot. If you reset it to 0, and successfully unroot, it should stay at zero.
And since you still have the Knox bootloader, it doesn't seem to me that the Odin ROM load actually worked, or didn't work completely.
Can you please go into settings / About device, take a screen capture, and post it here? Also, when you go into settings, do you have the tabs across the top (Connection, My device, Accounts, More) or is everything on one long scrolling page?
You say you updated to stock 4.3 via OTA. Were you rooted before you applied the OTA? Did it generated any errors?

I'm sorry, but I'm baffled. There must be differences in the Note, as compared to the Galaxy, that I don't understand.
You've posted your question in the Sprint S3 forum. Maybe there's someone in the note forum who can give you more help:

Can I go into download mode and install custom recovery on this phone with Odin like andyistic did, even though I lost root? Or do I need to reroot first? And if so, how?
I don't care all that much about tripping the warranty bit and losing my warranty. As long as I can have root I'm happy. I'm also OK with not being able to install ROMs lower than 4.3. Knox isn't the end of the world for me if those two things are possible.

Recently, I purchased the Samsung Galaxy S3 SPH-L710 (Boost Mobile) & as all past Android devices, rooting was in order (Phone seemed to do numerous updates out of the box as well as running 4.3 Android). Anyway, after using the CF Auto Root program, I've now got the "super user" icon but when I click on it, immediately I receive the message from Knox that it has been blocked. I've been reading a lot of threads as well as combed numerous sites regarding Knox & looks that there still appears to be no fix to disable or remove it?!
So far I've tried with zero results (blocked by Knox):
Terminal program way: su pm disable com.sec.knox.seandroid
Manually shutting down the Knox related files
There is a Knox icon on the desktop but tapping on it has no effect & no other area on the phone for disabling/removing obKNOXious.
I even thought of possibly downloading & reinstalling Knox (but can't find the file for download) to see if it would have any settings or ways to remove it.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
