Default [Q] If I root MJ4, can I still flash future updates?

In about a week, I'll be gifting a Note 3 to my wifey and mom and I'm planning on rooting their phones. Based on what I've read so far, it seems like there is no way to root MJ4 without setting off the Knox flag, am I right?

Second question is, once I've rooted MJ4, can I still flash future tar updates even with Knox set at 0x1? I know I cant revert/downgrade but I should be able to flash newer updates, right?

Edit: One more question. . Is there a Knox-safe bootloader version people are using when upgrading to just the newest ROM's, kernels, and modems? On the S4, we're using the MF9 bootloader stripped of Knox when upgrading to MJA and MK2.

Quick update. The latest Kingo root app worked just fine on MJ4. Root without setting off Knox.
