Root [International] Root 4.3 knox (don't need warranty)

Hey guys,

I have recently received a new phone through my insurance and unfortunately it has come with the new knox enabled 4.3 firmware.

I would like to root this, install custom recovery, and install Pacman Rom. I have no problem with the root process using VRoot, but I need some clarification on what custom recovery I can use and the safest way to go about the whole process without bricking my phone due to knox.

I am not bothered about tripping my warranty counter as I have insurance and I will be getting out my contract next year.

Please could anyone shed some light on this, I would really appreciate any help?

Many many thanks in advance
