    I'm guessing that this method will also work for AT&T?

    It will root the phone but then it will be bricked.

    Does this have something to do with Knox?

    If I recall correctly, ATT and Verizon phones come with a locked bootloader, T-Mobile and Sprint do not. If you unlock the bootloader on ATT or Verizon, your phone gets bricked.

    Thanks for the info. Since i'm not leaving AT&T, i guess that i'm out of luck.

    As someone who hates TouchWiz and has rooted almost all phones he's owned, the N5 is not THAT bad. Get a custom theme and it'll make TouchWiz immensely bearable. I got the Material Design theme for it, makes it look like a Nexus device.

    Or try an alternate launcher like Nova.

    Rooting also eliminates the possibility of using Samsung Pay, if that happens to be important to you...
