If you have a KNOX bootloader you can have a custom ROM or not?

I know that it will trip the KNOX flag but can you still use a custom ROM.

yeah. the only difference is that it voids your warranty even if you unroot.

Were would be the best place to start?

I have a knox bootloader which is probly already tripped.

I attempted to flash clockworkmod and got greeted with a Samsung unauthorized software and it wouldn't work.

My phone is fine right now with a stock recovery so what custom recovery do you use or how do you get around this?

I'm use to nexus devices.

Edit: I used CF Auto Root and now i have a 0x1 warranty status. Now it appears clockworkmod is working.

Thanks for your help
