Manufacturers try to make rooting hard to make their device free from security issues, as it will open a security hole in the system, for example, KNOX security system by Samsung. If you tampered the KNOX status to 0x1, you will lose your device’s service warranty as well as all the benefit of the KNOX security system. Also, KNOX status cannot reset to default value (0x0) once it is changed.
