    Question Custom Rom 4.3 - Getting rid of knox?

    HELLO EVERYONE,


    Little Story....Today was my lucky day. It started with me updating my Samsung Galaxy S3(Sprint) to 4.3, not knowing about Knox and bloatware on it. After finding that out, I was looking through every forum and every YouTube video to either get rid of Knox or downgrade my ROM. Unfortunately I was too late, but then something happened. My USB port stop working, so I could not charge my phone anymore. I end up taking it into the Sprint store and getting a replacement with 4.1.2. Thank God.

    Now I have 4.3 cooking up in my Android Kitchen, but I am bit confused at what I am looking for. I have noticed that Knox is well integrated into 4.3. Any suggestions? Comments? Please reply down below or PM me.


    Thanks,
    Robin Hood

    So just what is it you want to do? If you want to get 4.3 without the OTA / Knox, you'll need to root first

    You might want to look at these threads on XDA:

    No..No. I have the GS3 already rooted. I was able to grab 4.3 stock ROM and I want to get rid of knox bootloader from it. Then I want to customize it even more with rooting it, and other awesome things. I just need some help with Knox!

    Basically saying I have been working with Android Kitchen and 4.3, decoding and creating awesome things on it, but knox bootloader, and other apps on it..I am trying to figure a way to remove it from the ROM itself.

    For that, I would suggest going to the developers forums on xda. That community is much more knowledgeable about such things.

    The bootloader is part of the Kernel, not the ROM. But as of now, if the bootloader has already been installed, I don't think anyone has figured out a way to remove or modify it.
