If possible maybe expand upon option #2 for rooting without a PC (include the Mod Strings used within TowelRoot as well as Mobile Odin). I made a post a page back with links for all of that.

Also, maybe a disclaimer noting that flashing a custom recovery will trip Knox security and increase the Knox counter, which is non reversible (as of right now anyway) and voids the warranty of the phone. I know it's plastered everywhere but since this is the standardized thread for rooting and flashing a custom recovery that info may be helpful/important.

Thanks again for gathering all of the pertinent info
Good feedback. I will get the additional info into the OP. Thanks.

I'm rooted with the stock ROM and am on ND2. I want to get the latest update, but I'm sure it will break root. How do I gain root after an update breaks it? I've always been curious about this.

Thank you for your help!

Not sure why not. Give towelroot a try and see. Just a quick apk download and if it doesn't work for some reason won't be a big deal.
