I see from your screenshot that you are on Firmware MH6
. This firmware, unfortunately, has a locked bootloader and Knox Security, see post #1
At the present time, attempts to root this and install a custom recovery will result in the Knox counter being increased to 0x1
being the normal setting. You can view this counter by going into Download mode
and looking at the top left of the screen to see if it has been increased. At the present time there is no way to reset this counter to 0x0
and your warranty will be void I'm afraid. You cannot go back to a pre Knox firmware either. Please read the post I have linked you to and check your Knox status in Download mode
