Default Considering a Note 3, but have questions.

I currently have a rooted S4 and love it. I use an older ROM called CleanRom. It's basically a stripped down stock ROM. I like the fact I can use stock tether app which I use a lot.

The question I have is, is it really this easy to root the Note 3:

Having the tether option is huge for me.

Also a debloated stock ROM help too.

Any overall feedback appreciated,
