Default A question before I root my Note 3 for the first time..

Hi, I needed some questions to be answered before I set out to rooting journey on my Note 3.
1) if I root my Note 3 in the way where it will not trip the Knox counter, will I still be able to update to KitKat via OTA update?

Thanks for replying and helping always

Very much new to making music. Kindly give my music a listen here: First Set Of Demos. Just give it a listen, it would be an excellent support just seeing someone is listening to my music!

After root OTA updates are not available. But Kies download should be available. Still waiting for new Update to test it. If you want root without triping knox best is to keep old bootloader and use root de la vega. I hope hadn't done update to actual firmware. Also keep in mind the updates are an oneway road. You can't downgrade firmware version, or if you keept old boot-loader with a lot of trouble. Problem for KitKat you need new bootloader.

So some additional comments:
Which Firmware Version have you on your Note 3?
I used root de la vega http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2498850.
It's confirmed to working till MJ1 without tripping knox.

You can read my thread there I have written down my experiences. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2592203

Like I told you OTA is not working, but you can download firmware viva Kies, disconnect device before flashing and copy firmware from temp folder(so you have a official firmware).
Still waiting for new update so I can test.
The firmware you can flash with Mobile Odin Pro to keep root(and normal odin for boot-loader if needed).

You could also unroot your device and make OTA update, but after what you have unrooted KitKat and you will trip Knox to root again.
