So I saw on rootzwiki we should be getting kit kat starting may 23 or something. What do I have to do to retain root? I'm on mostly stock vruemj9 with some xposed framework. I don't wanna brick it. Should I just Un root and hope for a new exploit? Should I look at note 3 updates with root? Any advice would be excellent. Also, if there is a way to unlock the BL during this process that would be excellen as well.

Every thread to your question always said to avoid otas. So I would just wait until they come up with an exploit. Who knows maybe with this new update it will unlock our bootloader.

Freeze SDM 1.0 to block the update until we see what is up. I don't think the bootloader will be unlocked and other Sammy phones on kit kat are having a hard time getting root.

Okay sounds good. Are there any free apps that do freezing?

Is that confirmed or speculations? The May 23rd date?

The guy on rootzwiki said it was a reliable source.

I'm in the exact same situation as the OP (apart from having a UK note 2) I want to give kitkat a go but want to keep root and avoid tripping knox...so I'm waiting and watching. But I'm impatient lol
