As far as we have tested, after flashing complete firmware ND3 it is possible to run 4.3 custom roms (not tested older ones).
Regarding wifi and similar issues it is advantageous to have newest firmware including bootloader.
Device: Samsung Galaxy Note II [GT-N7100]
ROM in development: XPERIA_MENT_Z2
ROM in use: my own NE2

Which 4.3 firmware have you successfully flashed? Are all 4.3 firmwares working on ND3 bootloaders? I don't plan on going back to 4.3 but want to know for my knowledge Thank you

We only tested 4.3 custom roms, no firmware and depending on Knox status, in my opinion it could be possible to downgrade firmware to any 4.3 with knox enabled BL, as long as Knox isn't triggered. That's only theory and for me too late to test it. Never cared about warranty.

I have a silly doubt.. How can the Knox counter trip if we use Custom ROM without knox?
Above is valid if someone want to upgrade from MJ5 Bootloader to newer one with any new custom rom.

There is a difference between Knox app and Knox counter in the download menu of the phone. Once you go up/changing bootloader from mj5 then you get a present Knox counter for free.
Any custom room using higher bootloader will set up the Knox.
It's not about it is custom or not it's about flashing the bootloader.
