Question [Q] Root/Install Recovery on Stock, Never Rooted Jellybean

Hey all, I'm trying to root and get LiquidSmooth on my brother's AT&T Note. I've rooted a few devices in the past and my own Note II is running on 4.4 Slimbean. Problem is all the guides I can find for rooting are assuming that the phone is on ICS or GB. Is there any way to root if the phone is already on JB?

I did find these two thread with links to the original firmware:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1657279
and
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1657262

Would I just flash one of the above using Odin and then follow the thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1586223 ... or is there a more up to date guide somewhere out there?

Also, using an US AT&T Note is the Bell or Rogers firmware the equivalent version?

I've tried searching and couldn't easily find any information on this so any input is appreciated.

It does not matter what Android version as long as you are not installing a kernel to root. To root ANY version safely look here:
