Default [Q] Install cyanogenmod with the cyanogenmod installer on 4.3 KNOX

Hi all! Sorry if this is a dumb question or one already answered but, is it safe to install cyanogenmod from the installer straight from the unrooted 4.3 OTA with KNOX? Like will it brick? I know it trips the flags voiding warranty but will it actually brick my phone? Thanks in advance!

Tons of threads on this, to my understanding, you won't brick your phone as long as you don't try to downgrade below 4.3, you have to be rooted and have custom recovery to flash CM though.

I am also looking to flash CM on stock 4.3. Did you just install from CWM after rooting, or did you use the CM app?

Sorry man, didn't notice the post. Well i first used odin to flash the cf auto root. Then i got errors with superuser so i went to the play store and updated it, ran it, and updated the binaries. It also offered me to disable knox so i did then i flashed cwm through rom manager. Finally just flash cm and gapps

Thanks, worked perfectly. However, I am having issues with accessing carrier settings and voicemail issues. Have you run into similar problems?

I flashed the auto root, updated supersu and rom manager but rom manager aborts during install of CM.

What am I doing wrong?
