    I don't think there is a way to root the N5 without tripping the Knox fuse.
    More info is here.....

    Just root it and forget about Knox. I rooted my Note 4 and Note Edge a month after buying and never regretted it.

    Are you using Xposed as well? if you could pass me the info/steps on rooting the note 5 that would be great it's a little different with Samsung I've owned Nexus and OPO before and they were a breeze to root

    Thanks

    I have my Note 5 Rooted (You can't not trip Knox, but if you're worried about T-Mobile, they won't care), and you can install Xposed, but you have to install a custom version of Xposed, because of the changes in the ROM by Samsung.

    Rooting the Note 5 isn't too difficult. You need to download the recovery tool Odin (requires Windows), and a custom recovery (I recommend TWRP, you need the Note 5 GSM version of the file (noblelte)). There are guides on XDA that tell you how. It seems intimidating but it's not bad.

    For those who have rooted, how's the performance?
