Hi, I want to upgrade my wife's S4. It is rooted on MK2. I have debloated and removed verizon apps, so any update will fail. I am onto the S5 so am rusty on the latest S4 events.

I would like to update and have root, I don't want to go the safestrap route, so is it possible to upgrade to Kit Kat and root via towelroot, just to debloat and get a wifi tether hack? Any help would be appreciated

Yes, use Odin to flash a no wipe (or full wipe if she has issues) NC5 tar file then reroot via towelroot.
