Samsung disables a good deal of functionality if you trip KNOX even S Health stops working! This keeps many from rooting or alternatively keeps rooted users from using the features that depend on KNOX. If only there was a better way
And there is, if youre using a Galaxy Note8 with a Snapdragon 835 chipset. This is not for the feint of heart, however, as youll need to do some flashing. Note that you need a CSC file; those for US phones are provided in the forum thread but others may need to download the CSC from their device.
Hit the Source link to read the instructions over at XDA-Developers. Be warned though, this could cause all sorts of issues and it does.
Again, this doesnt work for the Exynos model. The battery will only charge to 80%, which is probably going to be a deal breaker for many. Also note that SafetyNet will stop working as will Magisk. Some AT&T users experienced some voice call issues, but theres a solution for that.
PS. If you read all that and thought Cool, but I wish it worked on the Galaxy S8 then dont despair this root does the same thing (again, works only on Snapdragon phones).
