Hey guys

I don't currently have this phone model, but my friend wants me to root and install a 4.4 rom on it. Just have a couple of questions.

Would saferoot or cf-autoroot both work? I have no experience with either so if someone could recommend one over the other that would be great. I'm a little more experienced with saferoot since I'm recommending it for people who took our 4.3 OTA. Never actually used it.

Also for us Verizon folks, we got locked bootloaders in the update. I know that Knox is included in the update, but am I able to still install a custom rom over it? I understand the Knox counter will be tripped, but I'm not concerned about that. Just don't want the phone to soft brick from an installation.

Cf auto root works. You can still install custom roms if you trip Knox
