Default New KitKat i9505 bootloader questions - Google Play Edtion

I am still on old bootloader which gives me flexibility to flash most roms including GPE.

I'm wondering, if I upgrade to new bootloader with knox and 4.4.2 kitkat. Will I still be able to flash Google Play Edition roms or any other CM11 or nightlies rom?? Thanks for your reply in advance.

As i understand it, you'll be able to flash these ROMs, but you WILL trip the knox switch, and you will have to use a custom kernel.

Are you a ROM chef? Want to make sure your APKs have the correct compression settings, the internal PNGs are optimised, and the APKs are zip aligned? Check out my script:

Really? I don't mind about tripping Knox anymore. As my phone wasn't far from warranty over. Are you sure ?
