I know you say your SDM won't let you read your about phone, but hopefully you still know what build you have.

Thank you so much for this. If you confirm you have same build as mine. I will try it. Then I just run it as normal, freezing SDM 1.0. And can even delete amazon crap etc, right?

forgive my naivety.... I have never done anything like this before. I'm just a mom with an awesome phone who wants to keep it that way.
I was under the impression that saferoot worked perfectly fine on 4.3. I'm on a custom TW rom now so it's already rooted, but I've rooted an S4 on 4.3 no issues. Similar situation.

Yes, I am on that build. Just unfroze to make sure. I think you might be confusing rooting and unlocking. No one hard unlocked the bootloader on this version. But root is no problem.

Supported. It has been quite easy to obtain root. But yes unfortunately Knox holds its name well & the bootloader is still locked down good. Overall enjoying the benefits from root are still there. Just no custom recovery or flashing ROMS or mods are achievable. safestrap is in alpha now though. So those things are coming possible to a extent

we may not be able to unlock the bootloader but safestrap is already being tested so custom roms are going to be running soon

Apparently there was a leak of 4.4.2 for the international version. I'm sure an enterprising dev could port it to our device. My guess is that the official international version comes out in April and the Verizon version comes out in like October after the Note 4 is released...

I saw the post for Ditto N3 in Samsung Galaxy i7100 forum. I got bored and installed it on my verizon note 2. I must say that it is gorgeous and extremely smooth.
