If KitKat comes for 9195 I will waith several months because first software update is full with bugs.it takes time to fix this bugs
I want to correct in my previous comment when I say turn off Google Acount I mean Samsung Acount ,that is weary important.
My 9195 battery last 3 days with many calls and sms,but no wifi,data internet,and gps location.Olso turn off Google Acount,Samsung Hub,Samsung travell and Google location services.Google play services still work perfectly.I turn off all sinchronizations apps in apps menager.Google maps are set to find locations only thru wifi or network but no thru gps satellites.This is the secret how to last your battery life.Worked 100 procent !!!

Just use Odin. My previous GS2 was from Germany, so I couldn't get OTA updates in my country since it had German firmware, so I flashed firmware for my country using Odin, without any root. And got all OTA updates. Same thing with my GS4 mini. If you use any official firmware from Samsung, you don't have to be rooted to flash it.
Now about KNOX. Knox is not country dependent, it is region dependent. It means if you buy GS4 mini in Switzerland (like I did), you can use it in any European country without problems. But if you want to use it in come Asian country, you would first have to insert SIM from some European carrier, leave it for 5 min, and then the phone would be also unlocked to be used in Asia with Asian carriers. So Knox has to be just activated with the SIM from region you bought the phone from, and then it can be uses all over the world.
Knox info should be labeled on the box of the phone (at least it is on mine).
