Have you tried freezing all Knox related services with Titanium?

No I don't even know what Knox is. I'm trying to explore Knox before I decide if I like it or not. How do I activate it? Its not selectable. I don't have a Knox icon in the application draw, how do I turn it on?

So question since i dont seem to see anyone really talking about it..
Im new to the S4 Just got it a couple days ago.. After unboxing it i did the 4.3 OTA update
Just found out about Knox after i tried rooting my device and it asked me if i wanted to disable Knox. I said yes. and the root when through fine. I used a root checker and it says my device is rooted. I want to get into Flashing Custom Roms but from what im hearing i wont be able to due to Knox and how it locks down the boot loader.. Can anyone fill me in on this..

Whether or not i should be concerned at the fact that Knox is on my system?
Will i be able to flash a custom recovery on my system so i can flash custom roms with out a problem?

Thank you in advanced

Btw i came from the Nexus S 4G section which flashing anything came with ease

Yes to the custom recovery...I had the same questions and the only thing it will do is trip the Knox counter which voids your warranty and currently there is no reset for it.
As for the cust ROM once you boot to recovery and wipe everything then flash a ROM none of the cust ROMs ive seen have Knox in them so it'd be off your device. Just make sure you follow the op and use the recovery the dev recommends. Most all are OK with Philz CWM.
I came from the E4GT forum and once I got this down its even easier than that was.
