You've already been told the i9300 does not have knox.

Please read the first post again Quote " can I flash custom 4.3 roms" so he would have root he never said anything about OTA..My advice would still be the same to anybody flashing custom roms BACK UP YOUR EFS

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

I want to get an s3. I had a note 2 before, so if I was on 4.1.2 and wanted to flash a custom 4.3 rom, I had to flash new bootloader of stock 4.3, in order for wifi to work, which had knox.
Would suggest if the s3 came out of box 4.1.2 that I can safely flash a 4.3 custom rom without needing a bootloader ? Or should I just update to latest then flash what ever I want

Try reading instead of asking the same question over and over, start with all the sticky threads in general forum.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Flashing a custom recovery will, however set the warranty bit to 1.
Stumbled upon this topic.
Like i was also told earlier: "I9300 does not and will not have knox in any firmware." - That's great.

But what did you mean with warranty bit to 1 ?
What is it?
Can't see any warranty bit text on my phone when in download mode.

I was thinking to install [i93xx][CWM Advanced Edition] PhilZ Touch -recovery to my I9300.
Will that affect some warranty bit system?
Can i get rid of it (how) if i need to unroot and put all back to 100% stock?

Thanks. (soz for being a beginner)
