Default Without knowing, i took the OTA update...does that mean i cant root anymore?

So stupid me, my note 3 downloaded the update itself, i got a text, reached for my phone and without knowing accidently clicked the install button.

Does this mean rooting cant be done for my note 3 anymore? or is there a workaround.

If i factory reset, does that revert my phone to the version it came out of the box?

Nah man your good. There's an app out though I haven't tried yet but I think it's called Kingo Root. Look for it on google. You can then install safe strap and flash some roms. I recommend Beans in my opinion tried em all and that one stuck for me.

There are so many of these thread, yet people continue to make more and more... I think there should be one thread that is stickied or something where people discuss these issues instead making these threads over and over again
