    Hello, a couple months ago, I rooted my Samsung galaxy s5 via towelroot. It stated that KNOX has been tripped. Is there anyway to check if this is true? I need to know because my phone is unable to update and receive messages, and Verizon said they wanted to check it out, but I've heard if it's jailbroken or the security is tripped, the warranty is void. Is this true? Any info is appreciated. My phone is currently unrooted. If KNOX is tripped can you reinstall it somehow?

    You can either boot the phone in download mode, where you will see if the knox flag is set or alternatively install phone info. If knox is tripped, you are stuck. There is no way to clear it. However, even if knox is tripped, you should be able to reinstall the original rom and get your phone back to almost original. The only thing is that you won't be able to use knox, but everything else should work properly if the hardware is otherwise okay.

    If the only thing you did is root with towelroot you should NOT have tripped Knox.

    The fact that you use the term "jail broken" does make me wonder what's really up with your phone.
