Default [Q] I'm hesitent to Root,have some questions

My First Note mic broke (confirmed at bestbuy by Samsung rep) So I got a replacement with Geek Squad insurance. This is why I hesitate to root. the other thing is I pretty much like stock but I would like to up battery life by getting rid of Bloat I have a mj4* I updated ota to Kit Kat. Tripping Knox make me hesitate as well I previously stuck with HTC evo line so this is my first samsung would tripping knox keep me from being able to use certain programs/functions? What would be my best option for rooting I heard* kingo steals info and sends it to china???!? I'm acting like a noob but I have rooted all my evo's but this isn't htc lol

Not dumb, there's lots of topics to read about how and why, most people here dont care about Knox, just read forms and get a vibe for what people say and go from there... I was an Evo guy from the start and came to this... This is way easier and a hell of a lot easier to fix of you screw something up... Wouldn't mind seeing a Viper rom here..

To get twrp to work, you need to use the 4.4bootloader version, for root, you need to use the 9005 version, read those threads and links are there.. And from my experience, Odin 3.09 works best.
