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!
