Default Switching 4.3 FW countries... will it trigger Knox?

Hi i wouldblike to update to 4.3 but its not yet available for my country. Can I use for example the HK firmware and then later on flash my country FW when its released? Will it trip up Knox?

Knox will only change when u modified ur system with something unsigned by samsung.
E.g : rooting, change kernel, change recovery, change rom.
Otherwise it will stay the same. Official rom as long as signed digitally by samsung knox counter won't change.

I think you can not change CSC after doing this. As for Europe some roms are multi-CSC and will default to a random one.
Please correct me if I am wrong, i hope that i am.

LE: I think we can root and change CSC via:
Root: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2553647 will not trip KNOX
CSC change:
1) https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...selector&hl=ro
2) https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...scchange&hl=ro [PAID App]

According to the thread yes. But those test on note 3.
U can try if u want on ur risk. From the looks of it, it will work.

Someone confirmed that the rooting method worked on note2

LE: Hong Kong 4.3 rom does not change CSC for COA (Romania - Carrier unlocked) so when the 4.3 COA rom will come out you can just flash over.

P.S the keyboard has English but i find it a little odd.
