Default [Q] 4k video mod for unrooted device?

Can i actually install the 4k video mod for my unrooted device?
Cuz i have kitkat 4.4.2 and i have to go back to 4.2 and then root it, and then install it.
Someone told me that its impossible to root device who's running kitkat, that's why im asking.

No you cannot because the mod needs permission which cannot be grated without root but there are alternatives to have kk, root abd custom recovery depending on your device but they all involve downgrading to 4.2

Sent from my LG-D800 running stock kk, rooted with philz using XDA app
