Have added a couple of links in #1.9 of post #1 to help explain what Knox Security is all about in very simple terms, with a video, as well as the Knox User Manual/Guide.

I have also added, in #1.8, a breakdown of the Samsung firmware release numbering, mentioned a few posts earlier, in an attempt to clear up any confusion on whether a particular firmware is Knox enabled, or not.

Djembey just got his phone back. Knox was tripped. Samsung still repaired under warranty.......interesting!
In light of Syd's post, I have also amended the main body of post #1 to read that Knox, "may", invalidate your warranty and have also added in #1.10, a link to the xda forum thread on the subject of the Knox flag and warranty. This thread shows that the situation with tripping the Knox flag and warranty repairs is still far from clear and that there are conflicting reports on the subject.
Did you know that hitting the Thanks button is quicker than typing it and the Search button is your friend.
