If you flash a new rom it wont keep the root you will have to root again. It wont wipe any data.

To be safe backup all your data first.

Ya backup is my 1st thing to do before any flash
Mobile Odin Pro has an option to keep the root, always works with me, but this is my 1st upgrade to KK with all what around it from closed bootloader and can not downgrade to Jb, etc etc...
Is there any root for the new build NC2?
I think it is better to wipe system after major upgrade

Stop saying stupid stuff, if he flashes with Mobile Odin Pro (and the right settings) it WILL keep root.

MOP (Mobile Odin Pro) WILL keep root if you set the correct options. HOWEVER you also MUST do a final step with normal Odin with the bootloader files alone. See the MOP thread the part on KK.

As an aside, the JB backup you make will be completely useless once the bootloader is changed to the KK bootloader... If you need to do a system wipe then make sure anything you wish to keep is backed up to PC...
