But i am confused with all this talk of 'MGG' and Knox.

I have rooted my

GT-I9505
Android Version 4.2.2
Baseband I9505XXUBMEA

I have no Knox counter flag messages when i boot into download mode, so i am confused if i should continue the flash the ass of my shiny new S4 the way i did with my S2.

Can you throw me a stupid bone here please
Samsung releases are categorised as follows:-

M = year = 2013 (13th letter of alphabet)

E = Month of year (May in this case, 5th letter of the alphabet)

A = Release of that month (10th for, "A", as they start 1-9 first, before letters)

Therefore, MEA is pre MGG, (2013, July, 16th release), and is before Knox. Only stock Samsung firmwares MGG onwards, (with the exception of MH1), have Knox.
