    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 http://androidforums.com/metropcs-galaxy-s4-all-things-root/756372-official-stock-recovery.html this forum
    used triangle away
    unrooted with su option
    updated over kies to 4.3
    updated 4.3 official http://androidforums.com/metropcs-galaxy-s4-all-things-root/808651-official-samsung-galaxy-s4-4-3-update.html 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 http://androidforums.com/metropcs-galaxy-s4-all-things-root/783769-rom-recovery-flash-able-stock-m919nuvuamf2-rooted-deodexed-rom.html from Arocker. Because my wifi still did not work

    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.
