I just got a note 2 for att, it's on 4.1.2. If i install any custom rom from 4.3 or 4.4, will it update the bootloader in turn installing knox?

Yes. ..If you take an "official"...OTA...you will get Knox. ..

But if you are rooting 4.1.2...and using a custom recovery. ..then you are free to flash the roms found in the development section. ..(no knox)...g

Nope. U only get Knox bootloader from official 4.3 OTA. U can flash any ROM and still stay on your 4.1.2 bootloader.

P.S. just don't flash ROMs which are Knox Dependent. I've read somewhere about a ROM that's Knox dependent.

Smack that thanks button if I helped!
