Knox-Free 4.3 TouchWiz ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S 4
Earlier this week, we covered the release of the official I9505XXUEMJ5 update to Android 4.3 for the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Although technically intended for the German market first, this update could be downloaded and installed manually through Odin using simple instructions by XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab.
Although it was possible to update manually, many chose to instead wait for a Knox-free ROM to be created. Luckily, XDA Recognized Contributor friedrich420 modified the update to remove Knox, as well as several other unnecessary pieces of bloatware in his modified stock ROM. The ROM also includes a few other modifications such as an aftermarket kernel by Recognized Developer ktoonsez, and a few optional add-ons available in the thread’s second post.
If you’ve been waiting for a Knox-free TouchWiz 4.3 experience, head over to the ROM thread to get started.

Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.
