Hello everyone,

With the recent root method on 4.4.2 for the note 3 would it be possible for me to preform a factory reset on my device and take the OTA 4.4.2 update and then towelroot?

My device has xposed framework and was rooted with kingro.

Thanks for any input

If you're on 4.3 and were previously rooted, you will have to do this or else the update will fail at ~27%:

It's not worth it. Even with root Jellybean blows KitKat out of the water. Stay on Jellybean.

1. There are more ROM options for Jellybean
2. I ran the official OTA NC2 rooted with a ton of stuff frozen/removed for a few days and battery life was nowhere near as good as stock rooted MJ5/NB4 with the same amount of stuff frozen/removed
3. The Jellybean version of Safestrap supports ROM slots and seems more stable in general than the KitKat version
4. With Jellybean you have the option of jumping back and forth between Jellybean and KitKat
