My Google powers are wearing out, so I figure I will ask directly.

I am currently rooted, running the stock ROM on my L720. The android version is 4.2.2 and the build is JDQ39.L720VPUAMDL. I want to upgrade to 4.4, but I want to either keep it rooted or be able to reroot the phone.

Currently I can turn on my Hotspot with no additional app. I want to be able to continue using my phone as a HS. This is essential. A functionality my phone doesn't have is the ability to move apps to SD.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. (And I'm sure this question is asked a thousand times a day, but google and search are failing me ) Thank you so much!

Also this will give you Knox. If you don't want Knox there is a thread to keep your older bootlaoder

Is this like Sprint's android version of herpes?

I admit that I am a bit confused. Do I need to unroot my phone before I do this? I hate asking for help, but I really don't want to screw up my hotspot

Hahah it can be compared to that , although I swear I wouldn't know. :P

To understand Knox, Google it and read up on it. Its just a Samsung warranty /security thing. Most of us don't care having it or tripping the Knox flag.

You don't need to unroot to Odin a tar file.

If you decide you don't want Knox, this would be the thread you want. Follow the directions correctly and you should be up and running. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2277480
