Hello, so to anyone that is offenced by these beginner questions, feel free to ignore it.

1.Does Frameroot really only works up until Android 4.2? If yes, are the new Android versions really totally foolproof so that an exploit is definitely impossible to make use of?

2.Is Android 4.3 really worth it or should one stay with 4.2? Stock 4.4 is really uncertain

3.Odin does work with 4.3 but flashing it might lead to bricks, breaking your efs partition and what not.
I assume there aren't better alternatives?

1. Framaroot does work. But not sure until what version.
2. Theres rly not much difference in 4.2 and 4.3. 4.4 is kinda worth it as google made it such tat it requires less specs so our device will run faster with more ram to spare etc.
3. Not sure abt this. I dun use odin much.

If you are going to install custom roms you do not need to root your device because custom rom's already come rooted... You only need to root if your are staying on stock rom and need to remove system apps and use the many apps that require root access.
