Default 4.3 to 4.2.2 worked for me

I went back to stock 4.2.2 on gs4 after updating to 4.3
Dont know if it helps
but I had rooted gs4 4.2.2 with cwm recovery from shabby
Flashed back stock recovery [Official] Stock Recovery this forum
used triangle away
unrooted with su option
updated over kies to 4.3
updated 4.3 official [Official]Samsung Galaxy S4 4.3[Update] from nutmeg because my wifi did not work
rooted with tmo autoroot
Did not run the knox app
reflashed cwm recovery from shabby
and flashed [ROM] Recovery Flash-able Stock M919NUVUAMF2 Rooted/Deodexed [ROM] from Arocker. Because my wifi still did not work

dont know if it helps but it worked for me.

According what you posted here this could be the "one and unique" 4.3 stock ROM released by Samsung without the Knox boot loader. Thanks for let us know!!!

Edit: As I saw in you latest post, we are not the exception. Devs will find a solution sooner or later.

Well one more thing if you update to 4.3 what happens is you wont be able to ODIN back to 4.2 tars, you can flash 4.2 rom via recovery all day but when you try to odin to 4.2 it will never work well for now at least, but thanks a lot for clarifying it for bunch of us and sorry for your inconvenience.
