This sounds like the easy way to the end -- I just install TWRP via Odin and can I just flash this stock ROM, I will be rooted, de-knoxed (still not sure how important that is), and good to go. Is that correct? A couple questions:
1) Is this the latest OTA update avaible for this device
2) What is the process for applying future updates? For Nexus (Samsung and anyone else) I would restore the stock recovery, then take the OTA update, then re-root and/or re-install TWRP. How do future OTA updates work after installing this ROM? Do I need to wait for someone like you to create another stock rooted ROM and then apply it via TWRP?
1) No. This is an old, completely unsupported ROM. Do not use this. It does not function properly.
2) OTA is available through the method you mentioned (flash stock, get OTA, then root once root is available.)....Except don't install this ROM.
But really, no OTAs have been released recently and I've not heard of any future planned updates, so....Go with Gatsrom.
