Why don't you flash official kitkat for your note 2, that would be close to note 3, then you could wait for note 4.
Hey, nothing to lose right!

There were many rumors about GS5, right until few days before the release and many of them came out to be false, Note 4 probably won't be released until September, so it's impossible to say if any of those rumors are even close to reality, I wouldn't even be so sure if Samsung themselves "freeze" the design on specs on Note 4 yet. As a matter of fact I delayed purchase of Note3 until November, waiting for rumored Note 3 active (waterproof version), rumored to be released any day now, way back in September. Well, it's almost May and Note 3 active is not even rumored about anymore, so I don't think I'll be making my purchase decisions on rumors anymore.
Bottom line is if you need new phone now, Note 3 is still one of the best phones around, if you don't 4 months is not that far away, or is it?

The Note 4 might be impossible to root without tripping knox (or whatever they end up calling it), but I am pretty sure it will be rootable.
Especially while we got chainfire. :P
