On a side note this does not harm Samsung's warranty and this method does not trip Knox. You can always revert back to stock using supplied guides on xda which I am also a member of. And was a moderator for some time. We have a small collection of Xfinity users on there that can avidly and openly complain and attempt to fix there screw ups
