Root your Samsung Galaxy device without tripping KNOX 0x1 and save your warranty. Latest Samsung devices come with KNOX security software installed. Samsung has said that KNOX is very helpful because it protects your phone but Android fans don’t have the same opinion.
Samsung has included a KNOX feature which basically doesn’t allow the users to root their phones. Now KNOX knows when you root your phone and it will activate KNOX Warranty Void from 0 to 1 and the warranty will be voided. The bad thing is that the counter can’t be reset.
Even though the counter cannot be reset, fortunately there is a way to not activate it at all while rooting your Samsung device. A discovered exploit makes it possible to root Samsung Galaxy devices without activating KNOX Warranty Void.
To root your Samsung Galaxy device you only need to download an application, install it and then follow the instructions.
Download the application which will root your Samsung phone here.
Go to Settings > Security and enable Unknown Sources. Once you have downloaded the APK file, install and open it. The app has only one button which says “Make It Rain”. Press the button, wait for 20 seconds and the phone will reboot. This time, with root access and warranty intact.
