It is possible to upgrade to KitKat and still keep that 4.3 bootloader but it is an involved process for what is probably zero return.

So update, towelroot, safestrap 3.72, install the zip to unlock toggles and tether?
I'm not going to put a rom on this phone. She is so lost on these things anyways, I wouldn't want to confuse her, so saving the bootloader for possible future exploit is pointless. As long as the phone works and she can tether to her laptop for netflix life is good.
Is towelroot as good as the previous root. I thought I read somewhere, that it's kind of hokey.
