I take no responsibility for your actions if you flash this.

Requirements:
1) Be on stock, odexed, unmodified MK3 rom
2) May or may not work by flashing through custom recovery, otherwise flash with stock recovery

Thanks bilgerryan for the filename

It won't work in custom recovery, guaranteed.

I have to say, as tempting as it would be to flash to stock 4.3 to take this update, I'm already on 4.3 bootloader and if this is knoxed and prevents me from going back to 4.3, it's definitely not worth trying to flash until the guys make it safe to do so.

Edit: I'm sure someone has already tried so let know how it goes.

Be careful here guys. If you read XDA I'd say there is a 90% chance that you DON'T want to flash this one or accept the OTA from Sprint. Wait for an update labeled "Root + deKnoxed" or similar.

Way to go CNexus for grabbing this so quick!

I'm on stock MK3 and not interested in root at this time.

Copy to SD card, rename to update.zip and reboot?

While we wait, there are definitely Knox support files in the OTA.
Guess we'll hear eventually if the bootloader is Knoxed as well.

I believe it needs to be placed in /cache, at least that's where mine was when I got the OTA this morning.

Edit: Never mind, you're not rooted

I have a Knox bootloader. 4.3 would this matter if I wanted to flash this?
