Default Hey guys.. Few Note 3 Questions

I'm 99% sure I'm picking up a pristine unrooted note 3 (vzw) on Swappa.
A few things I wanted to know...
I need my root, that is very important to me. What is the current firmware update and is it able to to rooted w/ safestrap?
If not, what it the most recent firmware that can be rooted?

I have done a bit of research of the knox "security" bs. There seems to be a few different methods to root now and keep the flash counter in check.

What is the best and most current way to go about rooting?

Thanks for the help.

It depends on what version rom is in the phone. MI9 you can just odin over a stock rooted rom and then install safe strap. MJ7 you need to use kingo to root then install ss. Neither of these options will trip the Knox counter.

Thanks. Here is a snapshot from the current build the phone is on.

I'm doing as much research as possible on the note 3. I'm coming from a note 2 on beans 22, and formerly sgs3 on beans.
I'm a beans groupie

That's MJ7. Look up kingo and you should figure out anything you need. If you get stuck on something in particular just pm me or ask here. Good luck! NOTE: Don't try to use Odin while you're on MJ7 you'll soft brick and need to flash the.. Pit file.
