    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if its possible to reset the knox counter on the samsung galaxy s6, Thought I could use Triangle away but samsung changed their software to knox, and now triangle away doesnt work sadly.

    Cheers

    The answer from me personally is no. The Knox warranty void bit has been scrutinized and debated. Some, like myself, believe it is an eFuse (be sure to click on "Implementations" in that article).
    Basically it is a hardware issue. The only way to reset it would be to replace the Motherboard.

    Here's some discussion on the matter.

    The short answer which was alluded to above, is "NO" you cannot.

    The counter is a Fuse... once that has been blown, game over.

    Believe it or not. The display assembly is worth more than the Mobo. Might be worth your while to look into it.

    Tripping the Knox counter just voids your warranty in the US and there is no way to reset it.
    The S6 has been out for a while, how much warranty did you have left?
