So I'm going to bite the bullet and go to KK from JB.
Once I've KK'd my phone I'll put a custom rom in it.

knox is tripped and I'm rooted.

Will I need to unlock the bootloader once flashed?
Also getting a bit confused as to which is latest stock firmware for my SM-N9005?
Been googling and I have a ND3 and a ND6 versions?
But then I google more and get NE and a NF versions?
Phone is the european version originally on vodafone.
Don't suppose it really matters as I'll be going to a custom rom but would like to start from the latest in case I don't like any of the available custom roms as yet.........

Thanks for any help you provide

AFAIK there isn't a "European" version per se, different ROMs for different areas/countries.

Go to samfirmware.com and check by date released.

Go to sam mobile NF is current latest version but you can go for NE version. European Version doesn't really matter just download appropriate file for your Vodafone firmware . Here is the link http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=29534 (ND3)
You can try the NF version(Latest) also if you want to even not for Vodafone stated on the Website but before you flash, make sure to tick the update bootloader because you are still on JB firmware. Then you can try any of Custom Roms available on Android Development Section.

Is it PDA or CSC that indicates latest?
I know the HK roms are for 16gb phones although I think someone has a 'fix' for int 32gb versions.
Although the NF version is for the 900T I think it can be flashed to the int9005?

Damn Samsung and their knox tripping

Mate, if there are no NF available for N9005 then dont flash it. You have and and you must download only the correct version of firmware that is sm-n9005. PDA is the one that indicate the latest. In sammobile website the latest version for N9005 is NE so you have to go for NE for the latest version. I have no idea if NF1 is flashable on european 32Gb cause of rumors and what not that will brick the phone, and to be safe just download the NE firmware.
