Default Can I flash AOSP ROM with the new bootloader?

I flashed the new TW 4.3 ROM and for it to work it needs the new bootloader with the knox warranty bit. My question is can I flash now if I wanted an AOSP Rom with the new bootloader? Has anyone tried it maybe share his experience with us?

do you still want Knox warranty or just does't care for it?
there's a thread to remove knox entirely & you can install AOSP

I flashed the new boot loader. Then decided I didn't like tw 4.3 and switched to paranoid aospa. So far so good.
Only thing I noticed is that my phone sometimes turns off Bluetooth and WiFi if the phone gets too hot, e.g. when I am playing intensive games for half an hour or so. Nothing that a reboot doesn't solve.
