Of couse, its runs well, there is nothing wrong with it. The Galaxy Note 3 is a beast of a device, root or not. I got my Note with KK pre-installed and while I want root, the device hasn't missed a beat so far, everything runs smoothly.

Yes and no. Yes because I like the plain white status bar icons. No because I can't root, I can't use third party apps to write to the external SD card, and after downgrading to KitKat it has erased my external SD card twice.

KK has been running fantastic for me. I never run the stock launcher so really for me the ONLY thing I wish I was able to do is run Xposed modules Wanam to change a few visual items. But performance wise? ZERO issues at all. Battery life is excellent for me(Please remember thats VERY subjective)

My battery life went down. I am in the process of backing up all my settings to do a hard reset. The phonehas also started to hang when waking up from screen off.

I'm pleased with 4.4.2. It fixed my GPS and video problems. The phone's performance (including battery life) is about the same or slightly better than before the update. It's been very stable. No problems with using my (64GB) microSD card (encrypted).

I love the official kitkat because it's soooo smooth, but I miss having the freedom of changing things around a bit. But I still think my battery life was a bit better with jellybean. I use to get 6 hours screen time as with the ota kitkat only giving me 5 hour's. I guess I have to take the good with the bad.

So is there any chance of anyone achieving root on the official KK?

I think there is a chance. I bet we'll have root again sometime between now and the end of the year.
