if you update your i9305 via ota update or kies, you will get the knox bootloader (new bootloader since 4.3) and that crap is nothing but a pain in the ass!! read about KNOX here. I dont recommend updating to official 4.3 for now with ota or kies, instead of that use a custom stock rom 4.3 from any developer on the development thread of i9305 without knox. but first ask in the thread of the rom, if you will get knox by flashing it? knox itself is removed from those custom 4.3 roms but still i dont know for sure, i have the new bootloader with knox myself unfortunately

all this time since im on knox bootl. ive had no problems actually with the knox bootloader in all that custom roms/kernels/recoveries flashing etc. but some do have and maybe you will too...(i hope not of course, if you do update to official 4.3) but you are warned!
Rom: S5 Elite Lite (4.4.2 TW KK)
Modem: XXUEMK1
Recovery: Philz touch 6.48.4

Update to 4.3 isnt worth at all.
Well configured 4.1.2 with some useful application is much better.

I am still on 4.1, but as far as I know, the problem is not the Knox app, but the Bootloader for 4.3, which has Knox installed. Which means that you void your warranty if you install custom roms after updating to stock 4.3. Like MaHo said, read Here

The better advice would be to flash some custom K.K. 4.4.4 rom instead. It has A LOT more improvements than 4.3.
