Good news everyone! I've been messing with TriangleAway a bit, and resetting the flash count, binary status, and system status works again in my development build.

The bad news is, resetting this does not reset the new "KNOX WARRANTY VOID" status. Further investigation is needed (and this will take a while), but I will probably update Triangle Away soon anyway - just to stop it from soft-bricking those I9505s with the new firmwares for people who aren't following my daily rantings.

When you do the latest knox update. It makes the phone stock official.

Zahid Alaauddin commented on 2013-09-06 at 10:54:

Could u please add support for Samsung Galaxy Star? I have already posted the dump files and I really need triangle away to reset my counter so I can take it to service centre. thanks

Like always, you Rock....

Jordan Warshavsky commented on 2013-09-06 at 12:38:

+Chainfire is the new KNOX & SELinux integration at bootloader, purely a development to support wider enterprise adoption?  Or should I worry and breakout the tinfoil hat and re-read the snowden files?

Chainfire commented on 2013-09-06 at 15:09:

+Jordan Warshavsky your guess is as good as mine

Muhammad Johar commented on 2013-09-06 at 15:47:

+Chainfire need any logs or something else for the i9500? Just needs the pesky binary counter reset... Good job in getting the i9505 up and running and I know you will get the Knox issue sorted out.

Kevin Rombold commented on 2013-09-07 at 17:31:

Josh Herbert commented on 2013-09-07 at 23:39:

God dam it. Get my S4 thursday and put it to de bloat it and now the speaker has stopped working so i need to send it for repairs with this stupid knox thing. Im going to wait a week i think and see what chainfire can do.

Juest Zungo commented on 2013-09-08 at 02:57:

+Josh Herbert dude, dont get desperate, reset it, and you might have enabled "turn off sound" in Accessibility

Csergő Balázs commented on 2013-09-11 at 21:51:

Hello +Chainfire! I have an i9505 that i have flashed with a carrier unlocked stock rom while the device is carrier locked. It worked fine, until i installed all the updates that came up and tried to root it with CF autoroot. It did not work, got the popup message, and I thought that as far as i am unable to root, I wanted to go back to my previous, rootable, Knox free stock rom. Then problems came. I had a screen " firware upgrade encountered an issue" Panicked, of course, as I've never seen this before, and flashed the carrier unlocked rom, hoping that all will be well but surprise surprise: i couldn't turn on wifi, but had Mobile networks(at least HSPA+, and LTE for a couple of seconds) but at the same time, i could not call or recieve calls anymore Please, please help me get out of this mess! your help is very much appreciated!!!

TheGrooveChannel 2017 commented on 2013-09-11 at 21:55:

Can you nit download your stock rom from sam mobile then flash via odin

Csergő Balázs commented on 2013-09-11 at 22:19:

Harry Peart! Already don that to no avail...:(

TheGrooveChannel 2017 commented on 2013-09-11 at 22:29:

Ahmet Özgür commented on 2013-09-18 at 14:59:

potty andy commented on 2013-09-20 at 14:49:

Robin Vm commented on 2013-09-20 at 15:46:

I got the same issue like balázs Csergő :((

Csergő Balázs commented on 2013-09-20 at 16:06:

Robin Vm! Take your device to an independent gsm/cell phone shop, and tell them the problem, they'll probably be able to help! That's what I've done and i now have a workinh device, although knox warranty void is still 0x01... :(

Tomáš Sedlák commented on 2013-10-06 at 11:12:

I try to use TriangleAway on I9505 MH7 with Adam Kernel 1.6 and after reboot it is showed little message on first screen, that it boot into recovery mode, but it boot normaly into system. It is same, when i want to manual boot into recovery mode. Is there any way how can i successfully apply TriangleAway on Adam Kernel?
