Are you still rooted or are your root apps with prior permissions still using their old grant? Try a new root app see if your able to grant a new permission.

Yes. Im sure you can use the kk version of ss and flash roms. Your issue is this is your only shot at having root. Meaning if you soft brick in some manner and you are forced to use odin to recover you will lose root with no way to retain it or regain it. If you dont need root to take advantage of tethering on a unlimited plan then maybe its not a issue for you. But if u need root to be happy with your device I would stay stock and just disable otas til your ready to try survival mode again if ever needed.

Edit. At least until a new root exploit is found if ever anyways.
