Default Is 4.3 a fota?

My grandma has a sprint Note 2 (I have an S3) and is the 4.3 a FOTA? I won't be able to get to her until like Dec 20th and root her phone.and install CM or modded stock. I told her to click no whenever possible for the update. And she said she will. But if it forces I can't help that. I'm trying to avoid KNOX.

The Sprint Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 update did not include KNOX.

Yes it is knox is on that update I had to use root to remove it . But lorjay589 has a rom with 4.3 without knox bootloader or any of the knox files that's what I'm running now. Try reading the threats for more info to help you out more.

Yup it can read around the forum it can be completely non existent on 4.3 using lorjay 598 rom or removing it your self. His rom even remove the knox bootloader which prevent you from downgrading . Read the thread he has

Well she is 100% stock not rooted. Fota stands for forced ota so can she just keep tapping no until I can get to her and root it and flash a 4.3 ROM?

I had read that Samsung did not push KNOX out on the Sprint Galaxy Note 2 (4.3) update because of file size, but I found the files on my Note 2 using Elixir. I don't have the app icon, but the files are certainly loaded on my phone. Thanks for the heads up!
