    just as i did with the MG2 update i am uploading the 4.3 MK5 Knox'ed Stock Kies Odin zip.

    This File will restore or upgrade your phone to a Knox'ed firmware state Boot loader and all.

    The file link will be here. currently uploading

    Unzip the file and odin the file inside.

    contents are just as if downloaded via keis

    standard warnings included. This is Stock ROM, Knox 4.3 bootloader captured with Keis just like before.

    yes i did... i went the no Knox approach but if for some reason i have a soft brick or other item which would require kies to fix ill go this route.

    Also link added in OP for a return to true stock for 4.3 Virgin mobile edition

    This is good to have for Knoxed up users who need a restore option for sure! Your grab of MG2 saved my butt in the early days of owning my phone, so thanks for that too! Out of curiosity, doesn't the ".md5" need to be removed from the file name in order for Odin to properly push the file (I.e. it needs to end with ".tar")?

    i believe you're right usually i rename the file after extraction this time i decided to upload the file as is from the keis temp folder.

    No problem with the MG2. i added a disclaimer to the thread about knoxed up users.

    Will this file reset the knox bootloader?

    this is a stock update/ recovery nothing more what it will do is ensure your running a knox bootloader if your not.

    if you tripped your flag then it is still tripped.

    the falg is an e-fuse once triggered no way to reset as of now anyway.
