Verizon S4 getting knox

Knox makes it so you can not install a custom recovery on your phone, well you can, but it trips a switch that to this point can't be tripped back. It makes it so if you want to put a custom ROM on your phone you WILL trip Knox and if you have to send your phone back for warranty they will not honor the warranty. Knox will start killing off the spread of custom roms, IMHO.

Also, the Verizon update enables band 4 support, those that those with AWS LTE can use them.

 

Many people getting easy 70Mpbs+ on AWS.  Sprint needs TD-LTE speeds asap!

Be careful when talking about wanting 70 Mbps on a celluar connection or AJ might see it and start talking about your "e-penis" and then it just gets awkward for everybody.

Those speeds were taken by milan who were practically right under low power distributed antennas. It's the equivalent of us going direct line of sight in front of an antenna and running speed tests and claiming that's the average speed of Sprint. Real world speeds will vary. 

 

In addition, Verizons Band 4 is going to vary depending on spectrum availability. Not all markets will be 20x20 (very few actually) while there's plenty of 15x15, 10x10, and even 5x5 spots.

5x5? I knew that some areas didn't have 20x20, but I didn't realize it got that bad.

 

Do you know which (main) markets are only 5x5?

From the leaks, all the Samsung devices getting 4.3 this fall are getting Knox, GS3, GN2, GS Mini/Active, etc.

 

My question, what if you already have a custom recovery, etc?  Can't a ROM Dev just take the stock rom, strip all that crap out and just install the modified stock OS from the existing custom recovery?

I think will be ok as long as you install a stripped down ROM like you said. If you ever have to return for warranty however, and you flash back to stock my understanding is that once your phone updates while on stock unrooted you're screwed.

As long as you don't have to go into Sprint, Odin a previous release stock rom, then custom recovery.

That's why I said of your phone updates, i.e. don't update your phone if it pops up on your screen.

 

On a different note, I was under the impression initially that the part Knox that is the flash counter was a special hardware piece in the note 3. Maybe the Knox that our phones will get is purely the software component of it and won't have the custom recovery counter.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
