    Hello,
    I would like to root my samsung galaxy s5 without tripping knox I have verizon, but towlroot won't work I looked into kingo but I'm not sure if it will trip knox I have SM-900V andriod version 4.4.2 build number KTU84P.G900VVRU1ANI2 and the newest verizon update

    Could anyone tell me a root application that will root my phone without tripping knox on my phone?

    Ps. sorry about the a after knox (Damn autocorect (no it was just be being dumb))


    PLEASE READ:
    I have successfully achieved root with knox 0x0 I downgraded my phone with a signed version! I NEEDS TO BE SIGNED. Then installed towelroot. Simple!

    Thanks,

    Welcome to the forums. As far as I know, there is no way to avoid tripping the Knox counter, or erase it. I believe that bounty is still active on XDA.

    That might work for root, but not tripping the Knox counter to my knowledge.

    If you install "phone info Samsung" from the play store, it will show you the knox counter

    Surely it can't be easy as downgrading the kernel then using towelroot. I'm guessing if you tried to flash the older kernel, it wouldn't let you, or it would trip knox.

    To see knox counter: boot into download mode. 0x0 = good 0x1 = bad.
