Alright everyone of us is waiting for the release of Android 4.4.2 for our device. But does anyone knows if this firmware update, changes the bootloader and adds Knox compatibility? Like Knox warranty 0x0 or something like that that s4 and note 3 has?

Use the sticky thread for discussion of 4.4, it's only vapourware for the i9300 so don't hold your breath.

OK and if I have previously rooted Mt phone, when I was on Android 4.3 without Knox, and then used triangle away, and restored my phone to official, and applied the firmware update to 4.4 Will I have any issue with Knox?
Thanks in advance

I've seen that this thread is only for spamming, I've searched in there and the only thing I was able to read was that 3 or more XDA members arguing...

Knox doesn't use eFuse.

First, already Samsung Galaxy s3 sprint got kitkat and it's very unlikely for us not to receive the kitkat. Second, I don't mean the Knox application,,but the bootloader, I know about efuse but I'm not sure about something. For example if Samsung was sure that they will develop later a software like Knox and had put efuse inside the s3, but inactive until this update,?

The sprint s3 has different hardware, the i9300 won't be getting official 4.4. Don't see what the fuss is about, having used 4.4 on the s4 I was only impressed by how many things didn't work, like flash and any apps that use the external sd.
