Rooted ROM for T-Mobile Note Edge with Knox disabled

Few days back we mentioned steps on how to disable knox on international Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. Today we are going to teach you how to do it on T-Mobile variant.

Step 1:
1.1 Download the factory NK3 ROM (link below) and Odin the package. This is the full factory NK3, which means it contains the factory recovery, modem, system, etc. It will essentially reset your device to factory (without wiping the /data partition, so all your installed app and data will still be there). You will lose root. When you complete this step, your modem will also be on NK3.
This is a zipped file. You need to unzip to get the tar file for Odin. The extension will be .tar.md5.
