Default [Q] rooting methods for sm-n7502

I know there are a couple of ways to root the non dual sim version, but as the title goes, is there any method for the dual sim variant? TIA!

Have you tried root by Chainfire ?

Just flash it via Odin as PDA and it should work fine

I'm very much tempted to root as kitkat is nowhere in sight. But just in case kitkat update do come, can I still update OTA?

Factory reset and clearing data is definitely not an option for me.

Once rooted Device status would change from Official to Custom . There is hack to change it back and trick the phone to download OTA but I'm not sure if it would install .

Instead of worrying about all this , I would rather manually flash the firmware via Odin once kitkat is available

Yeah that's what I'm actually thinking but will I need to factory reset then?

You can flash without loosing any data and due to KNOX you'll not be able to downgrade the firmware
