Default Can I install CM on non-KNOX bootloader?

Currently I'm on a Pre-rooted stock ROM and would really like to update as stock OTA is not working.

Info:
Model : GT-I9505
Android : 4.2.2
Baseband : I9505XXUBMGA
Kernel : 3.4.0-1081224
Build number : JDQ39.I9505XXUBMGA


So, I don't have the newer bootloader with KNOX yet.
Further, I already installed CWM 6.0.4.4 recovery

My questions:
Can I simply install CM10.2.1 or CM 11.2 through CWM?
Or do I have to update the bootloader first or does it include in CM?

Is there a catch in updating my phone concerning KNOX and chance of bricking?
I'm I stuck on CM or can I always revert to my backup of rooted stock 4.2.2?

Thanx in advance for any help.
I searched, but couldn't find correct answers...

Yes you can just install cm but if you try to install newer touchwiz roms then you need to change your modem. And wrong section....

So KNOX is all about stock Samsung ROMs?
And I don't need an updated bootloader for all other ROMs like CM and OMEGA and can switch between them without issues?

Knox is basically a counter to counter rooters. You should be able to flash any ROM like normal but there may be some changed needed to be done for the modem. I'm sure there are multiple threads about the i9505 modems...
