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

I have rooted my

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.
Did you know that hitting the Thanks button is quicker than typing it and the Search button is your friend.
