Hi. I'll be soon getting S3, probably with 4.1 firmware. I woud like to flash 4.3 from Samsung or CM 11 onto it. Are there any custom roms on 4.3 that don't flash new bootloader (or just knox)? And is there a way back if you already flashed new bootloader and knox? I know about workarounds for root etc., but I know too that it still causes problems on custom roms? Thanks.

You are missing lots of basic knowledge on the s3, it doesn't have knox, bootloader is irrelevant to the firmware and custom roms are already rooted.

Go read the sticky thread in general forum before you flash anything.

Thanks, I will read stickies etc. I just have had 2 Sony handsets which modding I know very well, and I face samsung and knox stuff for the first time, and I read that it appears on s3 with 4.3 update, and then saw a note that there is a problem on kitkat rom related to knox. So as I understood I have nothing to worry about flashing 4.3 update and still will be able to have fun with customs?
Thank you.
