    S8: does flashing different CSC trip knox

    I currently have an unlocked S8 on the PRO CSC ([ Login above or register to see download links. ]).
    But since Proximus is really slow to release updates (often months after the provider neutral ROMs), I'd like to flash a provider neutral CSC PHN ([ Login above or register to see download links. ]) which gets it's updates much more rapidly.

    I've been browsing this forum for a bit, but can't seem to directly find a definitive answer. If I flash the PHN ROM, will Knox stay intact?

    Hi there

    This is possible and won't trip KNOX, however: you need to RESET your device (will be done automatically)

    Because PHN is part of Multi-CSC OXM, you'll probably get LUX (you've a Belgium SIM).

    Flash AP BL CP & CSC_OXM with Odin 3.13.x -> your device will reset afterwards which is mandatory. When you get a pop-up "SIM-card changed": accept

    You should flash this file: [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    Then you'll receive OTA also (assuming you have a Belgium SIM in your device now)

    That's fine. Indeed I have a Belgian SIM inside.
    Thanks, much appreciated!

    Just to inform people having the same question. By Following henklbr's advice I successfully and safely reflashed to LUX.

    Ques: What's Software Serviceprovider now saying in Software Info? LUX/LUX,xxx/PRO?

    And on a side note, by switching to a provider-neutral ROM/CSC, 2 features that I noticed became active.
    1. VoLTE
    2. Phone&Text continuity (let a Samsung tablet make calls and send/receive texts).

    Seems like Proximus was blocking these for some reason.

    Cool: a WIN-WIN
