Default [Q] Installing stock rom after Knox is 0x1

Hello all

Last week I flashed my GT-I9505 a CyanogenMod 10.2 and thus voided my warranty (Knox is 0x1).
Now I regret doing it and I wanna badly go back to stock rom and receive Kies and OTA updates from Samsung and so on.
Is there a way to come back to stock rom 4.3 after I tripped the Knox flag and receive updates?
I heard that when you try to flash stock rom after Knox is 0x1 you gonna brick your device.
Please help.

Thanks in advance

Nothing to worry dear you can go back to stock and you will get OTA also and if done properly unroot you will not brick device

Thanks for the quick reply.
I do worry a lot because this device cost me a lot.
What are the steps to unroot safely and goto 4.3 with OTA and KIES updates?
Just as I would do if I were on stock? Put the file in PDA and all the normal steps?
Or do I need to do something extra now?

I didn't use CF-Autoroot. I installed CyanogenMod on my device using their Installer.

OK thanks. Now that when I'll go back to stock and get OTA and KIES updates what will the Knox serve for?
I thought having the Knox meaning I can't get back to stock and not receive updates.

knox is so they can see when you send your device in that the warrenty is void.
other than that knox does not bother you (apart from downgrading baseband)

Thanks. So if I do not intend on downgrading baseband and don't have problems with losing my warranty then all is OK?
