This is what I did to go from rooted, Knox reading not tripped to 4.4.2 Knox counter still untripped.

1)You would want to back up anything onto a computer and your SD card including nandroid if possible if you don't know what a nandroid is you may not yet have the technical ability to make one.
1a) download the latest stock version of 4.4.2 use this
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2712205

2)go here
http://galaxynote3root.com/galaxy-no...galaxy-note-3/
Print it out
3) download the Odin from here
4)the above has links to Odin and step by step instructions with pictures
5) download towelroot from http://towelroot.com
Put it on your SD card

5) pull your SD card safely and reset your phone with factory data reset or if your running a custom recovery through it.

6) follow the steps from
http://galaxynote3root.com/galaxy-no...galaxy-note-3/
you should of printed it out....
7) after it says pass and is booting put your SD card in.
8) side load/install towelroot
8a) run towelroot and make it rain
9) install root checker verify it worked and then a superuser program.
At this point you will have a rooted 4.4.2 stock rom.


For the latest stock version of 4.4.2 use this
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2712205
And yes the Odin listed in the unroot website flashes that rom on my sprint phone without a problem.


Worked for me.

Thanks for the awesome pointers but I was having a bluetooth issue and debating whether to stay on 4.3 or go with 4.4.2. Not whether I should root 4.4.2. I am not sure how it relates.

Can you explain the link please.

Well based off of the thread topic, a lot of time the instructions are given for an intermediate user not a newb. I was very good at rooting the s2 and had rooted my note 3.
I was slightly frustrated that there was not a step by step to do what I needed to with out tripping Knox.
Which was take my rooted phone back to stock rom with the latest version of 4.4.2 and not trip Knox. So many here are meh on the Knox issue. I just don't want any issues with sprint (I'd probably get the same tech who last time argued that ALL GPS data came from a SINGLE cell phone tower and was upset when I corrected him)

I was able to do it the procedure.
Saw your post browsed through and saw the bluetooth issue and saw another post about person not being able to root their phone.

Wrote it up and put it here.
