    Really not a clarification request... But a comment... It's a 2008! Problem is likely covered by your warranty. There are too many moving parts to make an "off hand" diagnosis but you should definitely have it looked at asap!

    Sound does not stop till wheel is not turning, not the wheel bearing sound or brake pad warning clip, but sticking caliper maybe?

    The knock occurs on bumps, braking and turning.

I had the same problem on a brand new 2008 JEEP Patriot. The solution after 2 trips to the dealer was to tighten all the suspension bolts in the front. Note wether your problem is in the front or rear and go to the dealer.

Front end rotation noise

It should have been thoroughly checked. Noises like these on four wheel drives could several different things. A bearing, CV axle, or the differential, or bearings in the differential. A wheel bearing will make different sounds when making a turn. A CV axle is a constant sound. Differential bearings can come and go, depending on if it is a bearing for the axle or a pinion bearing. Axle side bearings usually make a constant noise. The differential can also come and go. Depends on acceleration or slowing down. All these sounds are also with a vibration. Slight to harsh.

I hear a single,solid knock sound coming from the drivers side wheel area when i release the brake prdal and accelerate and when i depress the brake pedal and stop,what few things should i look at?

Possible that the brake pads are loose or broken, possible that there is foreign objects on the calipers or it can be a fault on the calipers, loose fitting.
You need to jack up the front whell and remove the wheels to take a look into the brake section, check the steering joints and also the wheel bearings.

Rear tire will not come off after all lug nuts removed 2008 jeep patriot

This is going to sound crude but it's what most shops do...... put one or two lugs back on a couple of turns so the wheel does not fly off and with the vehicle supported on a good stable jack, take a heavy pipe, baseball bat or just use both your feet while sitting directly in front of the tire and give it a really hard shot at the bottom. (strike the tire, not the wheel ...if you have aluminum wheels).
'The reason it gets stuck is that corrosion forms where the center hole of the wheel goes over the wheel flange hub. Make sure to clean that well and put a swipe of grease there before putting the wheel back on.
