    I'm guessing we have to be completely stock to do this? Please correct me if I am wrong, Thanks.

    Yes have to be stock with stock recovery, and there is no going back.

    Is there any difference between this and any of the 4.3 TW ROMs over at XDA or is it all the same?

    Havn't installed it due to knox, but the 4.3 from tmo on xda is same update but with metro just different bloatware. I been running it for a while on my phone and no issues.

    I used the T-Mobile 4.3 ROM without a hitch too. Then I moved to the Google S4 international edition to have bluetooth tethering in order to have internet on my Galaxy Gear.
    I've been away from Knox too!!!!

    You must have stock recovery but If you use triangle away then unroot your phone shut off after unroot then restart in recovery and do a factory reset you should be official. If your totally over it just flash the stock 4.3 firmware I snagged from kies, shabby has it here ShabbyPenguin

    If you flash the 4.2.2 that is on the forums here and then do the update you could keep your knox counter from tripping.

    Yes the update has been available since the 19. I thought once I brought the galaxy s4 on Metro that would be it for updates I switched to Metropcs in the summer from Verizon and I am pleased with my decision.

    you shouldnbt be able to downgrade your bootloaders. if you had flashed 4.3 you are going to be stuck on the 4.3 bootloader. so how did you flash 4.2 again?

  25. Will I be able to update to kit Kat if I take this update? Even if I hate it at least I know kit Kat will be here shortly. Any way to know if I'm going to be stuck or forced to root?
