Default [Q]Just to be sure about rooting.

To get my device on a 4.4 rom with root i need to take the following steps:
- Downgrade to .534 with flashtool (I got [nut]version)
- Install latest Dual Recovery (z1 beta .123)
- Flash Prerooted firmware through recovery (Monx for example)
- Flash Stripped Kernel with flashtool (Nut .757 for example)

No need to backup TA then?

It look so simple, but it seems very complicated to me on the other hand.

Thanks for answering.

Thanks for the quick answer!

I'm not going to unlock the bootloader, thats why i asked about the TA backup. If i'm doing that in a few months, i can still do that then right?

And can i put the flashable firmware onto the sd card before downgrading? Or will the sd card be wiped?
