    I am very interested in istalling Cyanogenmod 11 on my phone, but I don't know how. I have a galaxy s3 running android 4.3 on verizon (i535). It is currently unrooted, but I have rooted it in the past. It currently has no sd card, so I can't use it to install cyanogenmod. I'm currently using a mac, but I have access to a pc if I need to use one.

    If you took the ota to 4.3, you won't be able to unlock your bootloader or flash most custom roms. Knox was included in the bootloader in the 4.3 ota which, when coupled with Verizon's policy of having locked bootloaders, makes it -for now- impossible to unlock the bootloader.

    Yup...what he said...I have a rooted 4.3 but no ROMs...I have just deleted a ton of Bloatware and it really isn't all that great imo....the battery life sucks with 4.3 even with root and a lot of deleted/frozen bloatware. I want to go back before the update :/
