Default [Q] 4.3 OTA question

Hey all ....
Sorry if this has been covered.

I had a rooted, unlocked Note 2 for a long time that I loved. I purchased the Note 3 not realizing I can't unlock the bootloader. I rooted it but still couldn't get any kind of wifi tether to work ... even paid app ones.
So tonight, I traded my Note 3 to a guy for some cash and his Note 2 .... only to realize it's 4.3 OTA updated.

Can I root and unlock the bootloader or am I screwed?

Thanks. Any help or points in the right direction would be appreciated.

At this point you can only root with kingo. You cannot unlock the bootloader.
