Question [Q] Flashing CM11 from stock 4.1.1 (about KNOX)

Hello, I have a i9305 with stock 4.1.1 (not rooted yet). I would like to try flashing CM11. When I look into forum and found some users get stuck by the KNOX flag. I just have some simple questions (hopefully): Do I need to update bootloader (to the one with KNOX) in order to install CM11, after I root and install custom recovery? If yes, will installation of CM11 trigger KNOX flag, even I have not flashed stock 4.3 before?

Thank you.

Thank you.
you do not need to update bootloader to flash cm11. the installation of cm11 cant trigger knox cause there is no knox bootloader on your device, you will get knox bootloader ONLY by updating to 4.3, manually or ota doesnt matter. try not to get the knox bootloader
