Question [Q] Suggested Setup for new Note N9005 - Upgrade, Root First, etc?

Am supposed to get my Note 3 late tomorrow. Ordered an Unlocked N9005 version. I presume it will not come with 4.4 but something earlier.

Based on my reading here I'm a bit confused. Do I need to make sure I root before I take any OTA update? Or take the update first? Anything I need to do or be careful not to do on first boot?

Thanks in advance...
Currently on a Moto X that I bought from Republic Wireless, but currently using pure WiFi and Hangouts and Viber

You should wait to see with what firmware it will arrive first, then based on that, you'll find out if you can root it without tripping knox!
Or if you don't care about your warranty, you can update ota and after that, root it with cf-root!
