    Hi all,

    I rooted my Samsung Galaxy s8 today to get around Three not enabling wifi calls on my phone but, despite assurances it wouldn't, it's tripped Knox and thus disabled features like Samsung Pay.

    Is there any way of going back to square 1 again and just reinstalling the default software so I can use Samsung Pay again?

    I don't have a clue when it comes to Android phones, but I'll tag Acsel which should be able to help you out

    To my knowledge, nowadays it's not possible to undo the tripping of Knox. If this thread is correct, it physically burns out the fuse on the mobo that checks for Knox. The thread is reporting some methods of rooting without tripping Knox but that's little use if you've already tripped it.

    If you don't mind playing around, the guide you used to root should have an unroot section. You can try unrooting the device and flashing the original image back but I don't think you're going to be unable to untrip Knox. Sorry to say you might be out of luck. All I can recommend is to try unrooting and see if you have any luck (XDA is always a good source of info) but it doesn't sound promising.

    It does seem to be very much a 0 or 1 type thing with Knox, shame as I was told a specific method (which I followed) which shouldn't trip out Knox.

    Oh well, I found out today that Samsung Pay still works but Android Pay doesn't.

    Android Pay is definitely the better service but beggars can't be... and all that.

    Thanks for the reply anyway.
