Cf root will trip Knox
Vega won't trip Knox

Baseband : N9005XXUENA2
Build number : KOT49H.N9005XXUENA6

This is my device detail. If I root with De la vega method and
using odin flash tool flash N9005XXUDMJ7 rom pack.
May it possible or not. I no need to use Kitkat because
my app and game not support Kitkat.

Thank you for answer.

You're already on Kit Kat. Just root with cf auto root if you really need to use root. No knox friendly to root kit kat

Dont do this.. itll brick your device until you flash a stock kitkat firmware onto it again.
MJ7 is a JB firmware.

You can't go from Kitkat back to Jellybean.
Any thing you do to root it will trigger Knox.

as mentioned by ultramag69,
unfortunately the upgrade of the Android O/S since 4.3 and above is irreversible (one way ticket), due to sammy is keeping on developing its bootloader.
Not only saying 4.3 to 4.4. Even the same version of 4.3 got few bootloader patches, and the same 4.4 also have few bootloader patches. This bootloader things make the upgrade irreversible. Downgrading can cause you to bootloop (soft brick), & KNOX trip.

and there's no KNOX friendly root method for the newer bootloader 4.3 and above. If you need root, you will have to bear with the KNOX trip. If you want to keep the KNOX, don't root, and just use your device as per normal usage.

Cheers.
