i plan to get a SM-N9005 and i live in Canada , my question is the phone has 4.4.2 kitkat installed so am i able to still root it and install custom roms like x-note? and would it even work on wind mobile?

Yes, I'm running 4.4.2 kitkat with x-note 11 rom installed and it works just fine. It's the same just once you get kitkat there's no turning back to 4.3.

Once you root, Knox is tripped on Kitkat. There is currently no way to fix & you need root or a custom recovery to install custom roms......
