I take no responsibility for your actions if you flash this.

Requirements:
1) Be on stock, odexed, unmodified MK3 rom
2) May or may not work by flashing through custom recovery, otherwise flash with stock recovery

It won't work in custom recovery, guaranteed.

I have to say, as tempting as it would be to flash to stock 4.3 to take this update, I'm already on 4.3 bootloader and if this is knoxed and prevents me from going back to 4.3, it's definitely not worth trying to flash until the guys make it safe to do so.

Edit: I'm sure someone has already tried so let know how it goes.

So should I NOT flash the stock 4.3 Bootloader over a warranty tripped 4.3 bootloader?

I ask because I'm virgin mobile. .. Already on the MK5 firmware and knox bootloader with custom kernel and recovery. ..

Thinking about flashing the virgin mobile MK5 firmware on top of the MK5 firmware to restore stock recovery when VM drops the ND8 ota...

Since I've seen you've bricked your phone I'm a little weary about it now...

Glad to see CNexus and the others keeping the S3 going! I might just have to take a look at the ROM upgrade and see how difficult it would be to upgrade my ROM. I don't have the phone anymore and have limited access to one so it would take me a bit of time.

You'll be fine as long as you don't try to flash a 4.4 ROM without the 4.4 Bootloader (take the OTA or Odin the ND8 tar). That's what everybody bricked on, flashing ND8 on the MD4 Bootloader. You already have Knox, as long as you don't try to downgrade your firmware you should be fine.

Thank you thank you thank you very much bilgerryan..

Now that I know WHAT CAUSED the bricked phones I'm a helluva lot less worried now. ..thanks.

So upgrading the rom only WITHOUT the 4.4 bootloader will brick the phone? ??

It's that dependant on the specific bootloader huh?

Very curious indeed.... considering 4.4 cm roms run on the 4.3 bootloader.... but that's why I'm not a full fledged dev like you lol... Still armature/intermediate lol.

That's how imbedded Knox is in this update, AOSP ROMs don't have Knox. That's why we were saying there probably won't be a way to update to ND8 and be Knox free. Nobody else wants to brick their phone trying.

I have virgin mobile as well on MK5. It'll be okay to flash the ND8 tar on Odin right? I've been waiting forever to get 4.4 and I'm itching to upgrade it, lol.
