Default Can I root on a p600 kk?

Been trying to figure out but mixed messages.

I know if I upgrade my at&t n3 phone to kk, I am screwed. So I rooted and froze the at&t upgrade till they fix things. Kk downloaded to my 2014 tablet but I keep saying no to the upgrade.

If I let it upgrade will it lock the bootloader or prevent later rooting?

Thanks.

I rooted my SM-P600 after upgrading to KK through kies, I used the custom recovery flash method without any problems.

I update mine to kitkat, followed the above, and gained root. It worked even though I was updated to UBUCND2 (the us edition, not UBUCND1 mentioned in the article).

yeah, I already tripped knox when I rooted in jellybean, so I didn't mind ... but if keeping Knox untainted is important to you, I guess there must be other ways ...

So if I don't upgrade, I can root and get kk without tripping Knox?

If you root, you will trip Knox no matter how it's done. No getting around it.

[ How do you plan on getting KK without upgrading? ]

Now I'm confused.

Wait... Is you N10 LTE or WIfi Only? If you accept the OTA on the N10, YOU WILL NOT TRIP KNOX. If you ROOT YOU WILL TRIP KNOX.
You can have the upgrade to KK without rooting. Just Keis or OTA.

no matter what version you are running. If you root the wifi version, you will trip the knox status no matter what
