Question [Q] Best way to Root on KK 4.4.2

Hey all, I just got my new Note3 in the post today.
First thing i did was turn it on and update to KK 4.4.2, so my device is not knox triggered and completely stock atm.

I don't want any custom rom yet but i do want to root it.

I've seen that a couple of safe methods to root stopped working since KK update.

What would be the best and most safe way for me to root my N-9005 (i have the european version)

Thanks in advance !

Cheers

Can't safely root and keep KNOX once you're on KK. - There's plenty of threads with this exact same question

If you wanna root regardless, use CF-Autoroot - it'll trip KNOX
// Nexus 5 (D821) // Liquid // UBER //
// Note 3 (SM-N9005) // AOSP ROM of variety // Lean or temasek's Kernel // - Dumped. No more Samsung
