Default Knox, protectcell?

I am knew at this but I want to root my galaxy note 3. I updated my phone so I can't safely root with out tripping the Knox. Now I bought my phone with Verizon and got a warranty with protectcell (I got the most comprehensive one they had). I emailed them if they would replace a phone that had a tripped Knox sensor and I have not received any emails back. Now I turn to you, people of the inter Web, to see if anyone knows if they will? I also thought of this, their warranty covers things like dropping my phone in the pool. Will they reject it with water damage plus a tripped Knox?
-any help would be great.

Yes, it works fine on 4.4.2, that's what it is actually intended to be used with.

Yes, once you install it and reboot you can even remove Knox when you install the Chainfire's SU app.

Yes and no, your warranty is technically voided once you root but you can unroot if needed. If you need to call VZW for a warranty replacement just pull the battery, call them and tell them you can get it to turn on. If it's on and rooted there's a chance that they'll look and see that it's rooted.
