    Question Is there a way to use custom ROMs after upgrading OTA to 4.3?

    I accidentally upgraded from 4.2 to 4.3 OTA after trying to dismiss Samsung/Sprints stupid update notification.

    Unfortunately after trying to root in vain I found out about the Knox app (obnoxious) and the Knox bootloader (pure evil).

    I know that most ROMs require a custom recovery like CWM, and that Knox prevents the bootloader from being modified as well.

    The question is, is there ANY progress on completely removing Knox's bootloader/installing custom recoveries with Knox in place?

    Or is there any way to install a custom ROM once 4.2 is updated OTA?

    Sorry if this has been posted before, although I've been doing in depth searches for weeks and haven't found anything substantial except a small post on XDA-forums.

    See post # 30, here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/spr...t-4-3-a-2.html

    This will get you rooted with a custom recovery, and you can then flash custom ROMs.
