So Ive been searching for a while now and i seem to find every TAR file to go back to stock for every other firmware except for NC1 Is this because of it being new ?

If i missed it somewhere can someone guide me to it ? I want to root NC1 but i want to have the files to start back at stock just in case another update comes . Thanks

The NC1 .tar for the ATT I337 is not available. It was such a small update that a full odin .tar is unlikely.

It depends on the update....some OTA updates check every single system file to make certain you are completely stock( including unrooted). Others, like the NC1 update, only check some of the files.

The 4.4.3 update is supposed to be a minor bug fix(no UI changes) and may still flash successfully even if you are rooted but it is almost certain that you will lose root.

I suggest everyone hold off on taking the next ota update until some of us can evaluate it and determine our options (we say this all the time yet very few listen ).

Okay so the next update won't be like the Galaxy s5 Kit kat ? No difference in the Touch Wiz ? Just bug issues solved ? & Also so would you root your phone as of right now ? on NC1 If you were on it ?

I don't know for certain that we will not get the updated TouchWiz however I highly doubt it.

And I did root my phone with my NC1 100% stock rom and then unrooted once I had it set up the way I like it.

When the next ota comes out I plan on creating a safestrap flashable update zip to test and see if its rootable with towelroot and create a pre-rooted safestrap flashable 100% stock rom as a workaround if its not rootable.
