S3 Android 4.4.2 & KNOX - Custom ROM

Does anyone have a step by step guide how to go to a custom rom from stock Android 4.4.2?

Ever since the OTA update, I have multiple problems - reception, battery, SD access (very slow / freezing), etc. Before deciding to get a new phone, I'm hoping I can do Cyanogen or something to see if that helps.

I tried putting Cyanogen on, (I am rooted BTW - that did work), but got errors and it reverted to Stock. After some reading on Cyanogen Wiki- it doesn't work with ICS and older bootloader(s)?

Any help would be appreciated.


PS - I am not worried about tripping the warranty flag.

If you've already upgraded to 4.4.2, then it's the same as always with Sammy phones:

Use Odin to flash the latest TWRP or CWM custom recovery
Reboot into the custom recovery and flash the SU zip to root the stock rom, or flash custom rom of your choice.
