Help on how i can disable knox

Hi! I owe a samsang note 3, running android 4.3 and model of SM-N9005. I have rooted it and use it for a minimum of 5 months. But unfortunately my knox was active when i swich off my device so that when i come to boot my device it cannot boot due to the fact that the knox forbids the supper su to grant permission.
My question is how can i disable knox on my device in case it is not in adb mode (i.e. pc can't able to read it). Thanks!

In your case.

You need to go back to the forum or site that helped you root this one.

Given the advances in Android I see very very few rooted phones now. But if I was going to install another ROM I'm off to XDA Forums.

Have you try hard reset

Hi There

Since you stuck at boot a hard reset might be helpful. First switch off your phone then Hold and press together Volume Up + Home button + Power button untill your phone vibrate. Now from list of section choose wipe data / factory data and then check if your phone is running. Let me know which method have you tried to root your device. Personally i didn't like software method to root phone you can try an app based method to root your smartphone such as Kingoroot.

Let me know if these method work for you otherwise i have second option ready for you.
