Tell me if any of this is wrong:
  1. Right now root will trip knox and can only be done on 4.3 or below?
  2. The kitkat update prevents root and is currently unavailable in the US.
  3. CWM & TRWP is available for this tablet.
  4. Flashing this tablet is very similar to flash a SG3. ( Not something I've heard about just trying to compare)
  5. Flashing any rom other than a version of the official Samsung rom will result in the lost functionality of the S Pen

1. Root will trip knox regardless your version whether it is 4.4 or 4.3.
2. Kitkat is now available for US. http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/1...e=XAR#firmware
3. Yes
4. yes
5. Just if you flash an AOSP or AOKP rom, which is not available till now, other than that any custom rom available now will give you all spen functionality.

2. KitKat is rootable as well. Flash CF-Autoroot, Custom Recovery and then flash SuperSU.zip with recovery.

I've been seeing people go back and forth. Are you rooted on +4.4?

I don't want to just assume any rom other than AOSP or AOKP will have it. I tried looking around at the limited roms that are available and none seem to mention if they do or do not offer S Pen functionality. Do you know of a specific kitkat rom that does?

Yes. The only thing that is different from 4.3 is that you have to update your SuperSu app by flashing it through custom recovery or update it through play store.

Do not assume, read the ROM description. Any ROM based on Samsung firmware has S pen, multiwindow. There are at least 2 such ROMs in development section.
