Hy all,
I just bought my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (edition 2014)
Phone Model: SM-P600
Device type: lt03wifi
PDA Version: XXUBMJ6
Android version: 4.3
CSC: XEF
Root : OK (CF Auto Root)
Recovery : Ok (Philz Touch 6.41.6)
Knox : deleted
Backup : done
I would like to flash a Kitkat 4.4.2 custom rom, but first let me know if I can flash directly (after nandroid banckup) or if it is better to install a stock KitKat rom at first (via Odin) and then after flashing a custom.
With my Galaxy Note 2 I know that I had to change the bootloader before flashing Kitkat but here I do not know.
Thank you for your information and advice

NB : excuse my signature always under SGNII

It is important to Flash stock 4.4.2 before flashing any custom kitkat Rom . And it becomes very must if you are flashing a CM based rom. Flashing Stock Kitkat changes the old bootloader to the kitkat bootloader which is essential for Flashing CM based ROMs .

Hope this helps you !!!
