I'm currently running the US Cellular version of the maga. I upgraded to KitKat over the air and now I'm looking for a rooting software that will root the phone now that it is running KitKat. Does anyone have a file to use or can you point me in the correct direction

Nothing.
I have the same phone and I have read everything about it. Nothing works for this phone I have tried every root option there is none of them work. I am waiting for geohot to update towelroot with a fix. Mine was updated to kit kat out of the box. I wish I had the chance to stick with 4.2.2 that was at least rootable.

I know geohot did towel root which I believe uses a qualcomm exploit originally on the s5 but I know it works for note 3 and several other kk builds...I'd suggest looking into that as your most likely option Imo

Mega

Went to the US Cellular store and asked the store tech about reflashing back down to jellybean from kitkat and he told me due to KNOX the flash would cause a hard brick. Said he just tried a Mega and got a hard brick after the flash.

Yes odin flashing anything prior to your most current build will brick your mega...if he works in a store and actually did brick a mega that way he's an idiot that should be fired lol...can you guys no restore roms or flash 4.2 roms not odin stock roms but custom roms like my builds...i verified day oone of kk update for mega i9205 with knox kernel on kk that we can flash and restore 4.2 roms just like usual good luck fellas
