    It trips Knox,
    Itself can't install custom recovery but root needed to install recovery
    Only after custom recovery. U can install custom roms.

    Lot of discussion about Kingo being a virus from China. It has been banned by XDA. Personally I wouldn't touch it.

    I used it and it worked like a charm for me, also, the newer version of Kingo DOES NOT trip the Knox counter. It pops up a message saying it's trying to trip it would you like to bypass tripping or something like that. I clicked bypass and it worked. Custom recovery works and custom roms also work. I read up on the China virus thing and it was confirmed that it was safe and that was just a fake hoax. Also it was put back on xda. Done on my s4 4.3

    What custom recovery did you use? And what custom rom did you use?

    New member here and just wanted to confirm this works.

    Cricket Samsung S4 SCH-R970C (Just in case someone is confused about this being "Cricket" Forums etc.)
    Android 4.3
    Baseband MK4

    I didn't do my research prior to getting my phone and got slammed with the 4.3 update (knox) before I realized how evil it is (had 4.2.2 when I got it home).

    Not going to mess with flashing new recovery unless someone figures out how to unlock the bootloader. Not pleased with Samsung....

    EDIT: I just wanted to add that this DID NOT trip the KNOX counter, it still is 0x00.
