worked for me but:

crazy enough, 15 minutes before rooting my phone, I had installed cyonagen with android 4.4.2 and the USB drivers and the cable worked fine.
Yet, Odin would not recognized the phone.

So I followed the instructions and re-installed the samsung USB drivers again, No need to reboot the computer, I just unplugged the USB cable and plugged it again and Odin immediately recognized the phone.

really strange.

All good now.

thx a lot

Not working for me neither. I've tried everything. Don't know if Knox is blocking or the Rom itself but it seems impossible for now.

Hi everyone,
I tried to root my note 2 following the step in the first post, i get a "PASS" on odin, but the phone says "SuperSu stop working" and close.
Then i downloaded from the market the "root checker" app, and it says that my device is not rooted, how to root it? i'm pretty sure i did everything correct with odin because when i had a galaxy s i usually put custom rom on it, so i have a little amount of experience on this field, btw this time i dont know really what to do, can anyone help?

I Searched for "SuperSu PRO" and installed it, without removing the supersu that installed with the root process, so as i say i downloaded SuperSu, installed it, and when opened, it asked for update, did the update and the phone says that knox has been found, and it asked if they have to disable it or not, i clicked ok, and it says "Knox disabled with success!" then ok, and it ask for a reboot, did it by pressing power button and reboot.
After the reboot, i re-opened the root checker app and it say "Congratulations! this devics has root access!"

Thats how i did it, i'm sorry for my bad english but as i say i'm italian, for any question about it, feel free to send me an mp, or write in this post, happy that i finally rooted my note 2, see you
