So, I got a Note 2 a couple of weeks ago and it had 4.1.2 on it. I never updated it to 4.3 as I rooted and flashed kitkat/4.4.2/CM 11 on it immediately. If I flash a 4.3 ROM, will Knox be "installed" on it? Can I flash a 4.3 ROM just like normal?

You can flash any rom from this section...but a few require an updated 4.3 bootloader...

That is the leaked bootloader found in the dev section...

The problem comes if you take the OTA to 4.3...which installs the Knox bootloader ....g
