Default [Q] Questions about rooting methods

I just picked up a Note 3 and I'm looking to root my phone without tripping Knox. It seems the root de la vega method is the way to go. My phone is activated and came with MI5, but its downloaded an update which I'm holding off on installing until I know what I'm doing.

Should I go ahead and apply the latest update, and then root, or should I root now and update later?

What exactly are the AP and CSC files and where can I get them? Most of the tutorials I am reading that have links to these files are using HOTFILE which isn't in operation at the moment, so I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for.

Thanks, SamMobile was using Hotfile though so the firmwares aren't available at the moment.
