The point being this.
Knox Warranty Status = 0x0.
This is even if you flash or root while on MI1, the 4.3 build is supposed to have full Knox support which means rooting will probably trip the flag.
I root so that I can freeze bloat and run Xposed so I can tweak system appearance.
YMMV but I suggest rooting before updating to 4.3.
