    Default Sprint Galaxy S3: Possible Knox Fix for CF-Autoroot

    What up everybody i'm jamal and new to the forum.

    But think i possibly found a solution to the KNOX problem (Worked for me atleast)

    Follow these steps

    1) goto your settings , more , and than app manager

    2) scroll over to ALL tab , click on superuser which would bring up settings. Click turn off

    3) open up a explorer app ( i believe any file explorer app would work ) but i used --> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tware.explorer

    4) NOW the important step.. in the explorer go to your root. Not your sd card data or external card data. Your Root.

    5) Once your in the root look for a folder named SYSTEM . from there open the folder APP.

    6) Now scroll down untill you see superuser.apk . Click it and install

    7) open superuser its going to ask do you want remove KNOX (dont know the exact wording) . Click yes

    BINGO Your Rooted...
    I ran root checker to verify it and rooted apps working fine.

    To anyone missing superuser.apk i can provide it for you just PM me or ill just simply post it here for yall

    Let me know if this method worked for you

    Does this allow you to change the Rom too? I thought that you couldn't change it because Knox was still in the bootloader.

    You can change ROMs as long as you keep the stock kernel, is my understanding.

    I looked in my root/system/applications and superuser.apk is not there.
