Default [Q] Sprint Galaxy Note 2 Official KitKat with Root and No Knox

Is there a way to upgrade Sprint Galaxy Note 2 from official 4.1.2 rooted to official KitKat WITHOUT KNOX and retain root?
Baseband Version L900VPAMC2 Build number JZO54K.L900VPAMC2

If you inslall the official 4.3 or 4.4 OTA it will come with knox. The only way around it is to flash a custom rooted rom either 4.3 or 4.4.

OR you can take the 4.3 OTA then the 4.4 OTA then root and manually remove the knox files with Root Explorer etc. You can take the OTA's but what's the point in doing that if you want to have root and no knox? Just flash a custom rooted no knox 4.4 ROM. Much easier.
