Android 4.3, yes safestrap and root will work. I think 4.5 must be a typo. Try rooting with Kingo or Vroot.

I would also double check what version of JellyBean the device is running. Also, what is the Baseband version? Is it: MI9, MJ7 or MJE?
Current Device: Samsung Galaxy JuggerNote 3 (SM-N900V)
Verizon

JellyBean 4.3
Rooted/SS 3.65

Rom Slots:
1. HypderDrive 7
2. JellyBeans 6 *currently running*
3. Eclipse 1.1
4. BajaRom 11
5. Stock/Rooted/MI9

Kingo seems to be more safe but no problems have been reported with either. I have used both with no problems. So if Kingo dose not work for you use Vroot and then replace the Chinese superuser with Chainfires supersu.

It's for the radio's and modem. If it's updated to MJE, then you will just have to root, install safestrap and flash roms. But if you want to run the latest and greatest of the best rom's, the devs recommend that you be on the updated baseband MJE.

As suppose to if the phone is MI9 or MJ7, you can stay on that baseband or you can ODIN and update to MJE.

Your mileage may very. I've seen users who have updated and have tethering, wifi and gps issues. Some who have updated do not have these issues on the updated baseband and users like me who are on MI9 have not experienced any of these and decided to stay on the default baseband.

If you decide to go ahead and purchase the phone, here is a link with better info on how to ODIN and update baseband, coming from either MI9 or MJ7 and updating to MJE. Best of luck, hopefully you can get the phone, root, install safestrap, flash the roms that you like and happy testing. Here is the link
