Default KitKat BBS partial wakelocks stats need root now!

Anyone else noticed that Better Battery Stats now needs root to show partial wakelock statistics ?
On 4.3 I could see those statistics without root, but on KitKat it says I need root

Is it me or is Samsung trying harder to 'stealth' their background running apps ? (like Knox which shoots to 25% CPU usage as soon as the screen is turned off)..
- Currently: Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Before: HTC One X (White/H23 Taiwan) running Viper X 4.0.6
- Before: HTC HD2 (sold)
- Backup: Sony Ericsson w810i still running strong after all those years with a standby time of 2 weeks xD

This is a Kitkat "feature" and has nothing to do with Samsung. Except that Samsung updated to Kitkat.

hi ,
if you want to use an alternative to Betterbattery stats ...???
that does work on Kitkat ( with a small adb hack , very easy to do ,
no root required ) ,if you do not understand how to install ask and i will try and help ? )
.....Wakelock Detector .I am using it on v 4.4.2 with the hack and working 100%
For those who is interested link......

He sets out in post what to do !
It is better than having nothing to check apps hogging , battery /wakelocks etc
good luck
Post note
Also on kitkat ( if you don't know , apps like Quickpic cannot access and copy /transfer to sd card
also es file explorer also cannot)
i have found using Samsungs onboard Kitkat "My files " explorer you can access Sd card and complete these functions quickpic and es file explorer, can't do !
