    I already installed the OTA Jelly Bean 4.3 (i535VRUCML1) and was wondering if it was possible to install the Rom [d2vzw][Official][Kitkat - 4.4.2] - Gummy - Nightly's from XDA. Im not having any real issues except the occasion wi-fi disconnects but I want to try something new and different. Let's just say I'm never satisfied, as long as I know there is something better out there to try. I dont know how KNOX works or if I even have it installed, never seen anything that ppointed to it yet.

    Sorry here are some additional details.
    Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3
    Jelly Bean 4.3 (OTA updated 2 weeks ago)

    Im not on verizon but ive read that there isnt a safe way to root the d2vzw on 4.3 yet mate.
    i could be wrong though so ask in the all things root forum for the verizon s3 to be sure :thumbup:

    I used saferoot to root my phone. My question is more rrelated to "Will KNOX prevent me from installing a custom ROM"?

    Nope it just voids your warranty mate but rooting will have done that anyway :)
    Do you have a guide link to rooting 4.3 on the d2vzw please mate for future reference?

    You can root the 4.3 OTA, but you can NOT install a custom ROM. If you try to unlock your bootloader, you will brick your device.

    From the looks of it, people aren't too optimistic of there ever being a workaround for this with the GS3.
