I would really appreciate some advice on installing the latest 4.4.2 update on my S4 i9505.

I've been using the MIUI CM rom the last few days but have found it too buggy (it's actually getting worse with updates).

I've also tried installing the Samy Delux rom, although it installs it just won't boot.

My phones boot loader is currently unlocked (no knox, early version of 4.1.2), I know if I install the new OEM rom it will install a secure bootloader.

Can someone please advise if my phone can be rooted if I install the latest rom for my phone and what the process is.

In the past I was able to install a stock rom pre-rooted, but from what I've read on forums that's no longer possible ??

Any advise would be appreciated.

you can root 4.4.2 but you will trip knox
and you can flash Pre-rooted Roms via Recovery
