Default [Q] CWM after Knox????

My wife's S3 got the OTA before I had heard of the Knox problem.
Her phone has some major issues after the update & I am trying to find a way to fix it.

I flashed the MK3 all in one ordered Rom posted by Thunder Stick on my S3 & it seems great so far.

My question is: since she already has Knox on her phone, can I put CWM or PhilZ on her's so I can flash the same rom I put on my phone, or will this cause Knox issues? I'm not worried about the warranty counter, just worried about bricking it.

Any input is welcomed.

Thanks y'all
Device: Sprint Galaxy S3
Current ROM: MK3 All In One
Kernel: Stock

Sadly Supercharged Epic 4G
has been retired......RIP

I have read that a few times already. I think what I am unclear on is about the difference between the boot loader & recovery. I was thinking that CWM would replace the boot loader & that is what I was worried about. So, if I have it straight now, the CWM & flashable Rom of MK3 will not replace the boot loader? You need a tar to do the bootloader? So will it matter if the rom has had Knox taken out or should I look for one with knox? I was hoping to use the All In One Rom, but it has no Knox.

Sorry to be a pest guys

CWM will replace the stock Android recovery. Yes, a tar file can downgrade the bootloader. you can flash any ROM as long you do not downgrade the bootloader.
