Default [Q] Few Questions

Planning to get a note 3 Exynos next week, so got a few questions -

1 - What color should I get? Black or White, the back feel of leather in black variant doesn't matters as I am going to be using a sview cover, most people seem to opt for black due to the back feel of black, any other reasons to opt for black other than it? I don't like the design of bezels on the black variant whereas the diamond design on white looks pretty good, so suggest me something please.

NOTE : This will be my first Samsung, so I'd be glad if you'd guide me through an easy way.

2 - How to root without tripping knox?

3 - I always had Sony phones and to Flash Firmwares and Unlock Bootloader and Flash Custom Kernels there was an application for windows named Flashtool which was pretty easy to use do we have any such application or tools for Note 3?

4 - What is the process to Flash Firmware, Unlock Bootloader and Flashing Kernel

Help will be highly appreciated, thank you!

I got the black one with black s - view cover, and I gotta say that I love it.

I don't think that the exynos version can be rooted without tripping Knox.

You can use Odin for flashing stock firmware, modems and custom recoveries, but most, if not all custom ROMs/kernels will be flashed through recovery.

Samsung bootloader are not locked unless you get the contract version.
