Default [Q] How do I undergo the process of updating to Kitkat and still keep my root?

Hello everyone!

I am an Android user on 4.2.2 with MF3 firmware and safestrap rooted. Currently I really am in need for an update because this Rom (Google Play) has been buggy lately and I believe it is time for change. The problem that faced me was the general process needed to understand what was needed to download to still have root and on Kitkat without OTAing. I have done my research but I have concluded with nothing.


If anyone can help me get started that really would be great! Why can't phone providers like AT&T support the cause of gaining root access? We all are just trying to take full advantage of what Androids have to offer. O well I guess thats a topic for later.
