Hi All,

I'm pretty new at this, so I hope I'm asking in the right place.
I'm waiting for the US KitKat update to come out via SamMobile, but I'm wondering if I need to update my bootloader at the same time that I flash the update?

I've read on this (Samsung Galaxy Note 8) Forum that some people where experiencing broken wifi when they updated with the UK KitKat version, and some were speculating that this could be because the bootloader in their device isn't compatible with KitKat?

I kinda wish I wouldn't have rooted and gone down this rabbit hole, but I figured that this would be the best way to get updates, also I really wanted to uninstall bloatware.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question!

The official update should automatically update the bootloader, you can easily flash a full stock image and you should be good if that's the route you want to take.

I would assume so, since CM11 is based on KitKat.
However, you may want to get a second opinion from someone with more knowledge than myself.

Yes you would be able to install CM11 as well as 4.2.2 version ROMS.
