Hello,

I have a note 3 SM-N9005 running on 4.3 and I just noticed an update that can be installed.
My basband is N9005XXUDMJ7.
Kernal is 3.4.0-2019540.
My question is can I root using towelroot without tripping knox?
If not is the new update ok to apply?

Thanks

As with any updates, I would suggest you have a backup of your data, just in case.

To root your device, towelroot will work and will not trip knox (if done properly).
You can see this post for the procedure : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2790108
Take note that you should upgrade to 4.4.2 before rooting.

Let me know if you need further help.

You'll be able to root, no problem.

What do you mean by that? The OTA update you'll do will take care of everything for you. No need for you to change your bootloader manually.

Nope. Your Knox will stay safe if you follow the procedure I linked.
