Default 4.4.2 Sprint OTA, knox question.

I have a rooted MJ4 Note 3 and was wondering what would happen if I accepted the Sprint OTA. I am guessing that I would lose root, but wondering how difficult it would be to get it back. I prefer to not trip my KNOX counter if I don't have to.

If you have the donate version of super su you may be able to have it keep root. The app has a option to try and actively keep root, No guarantees it will work tho.

I haven't found a solution for this either. I accepted the OTA and I am looking to root without tripping Knox. I was wondering if I could go back to MJ4 root then a stock rooted ROM KITKAT to stay official. I want to use a few apps, but they require my phone to be rooted.

I am taking it that you applied the OTA and lost root. Did anything else break?

Once on KK 4.4.2 you have successfully burned your boat to JB 4.3. The only way now is to trip Knox and flash engineered bootloader as the steps say on the forum.
