We also have a S4 back on the version prior to MK2 which we haven't been forced to update. That one being the more critical need of root.
First off, the Knox bootloader came with the MJA software so you already have it on both phones. Secondly, you should just take the update to 4.4 since there is no way to reset the knox warranty bit on any version. If you want to root your phone just do it. If you are that concerned about rooting than don't. The knox warranty flag has no affect on your phone usage unless you are going to send your phone into samsung for a warranty repair. Does you phone work 100% right now? If it does, then you won't have a warranty issue in the future. If you break your phone than it isn't a warranty fix it is an insurance fix. If you mess up your phone by rooting, than too bad for you, it shouldn't be samsung's problem to fix your phone if you tampered with it.
