I odined the stock ROM, and Towelrooted my device and loaded SuperSu from the play store. I love my tablet again. Thanks so much.

Are you able to use multi-window in 4.3?

Yes. That is one of the main reasons I went back. The side-swipe from the right on KK for multi-window screws around with apps that have scrollbars. JB has just a little dimple on the left. It can also be de-activated by long holding the back key, if you wish and it can be placed vertically anywhere you wish. Pita immersive mode is also gone. Immersive mode hides the top status bar, which some apps rely on. Restricted access to the sd card is also gone. (even with kk sd card fixer, some apps like ezpdf, still cannot save to the external sd card on kk). Since reverting absolutely everything works perfectly as before.

In my humble opinion, the Note 10.1 2014 was designed to run on JB, not KK. As with most devices, upgrading to newer ROM that the phone was not designed for messes around with features and creates bugs.

Do you find that some things don't work quite as well as under KK? I'm referring to all the S-stuff...

Just got a Note 10.1 p605 (Verizon, USA). Where do I find the 4.3 software I need and what steps do I do to get this done. Do I use Odin to install 4.3? Sorry. Been out of the root game for a while. Thanks

All the S Stuff seems, for me at least, to work just as well. If someone knows different, feel free to correct me.

For the firmware: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/
I used Odin.
After reboot, I installed Towelroot: https://towelroot.com/ and launched it.
I then installed SuperSu from the play store and launched it and let it do it's thing.
Finally, and this is totally optional, I installed Nova Launcher so My Magazine doesn't pop up when pressing home button. ( I couldn't find a way to disable My Magazine completely so I use Nova Launcher, It also has quite a few other nice features)

As I said earlier: I love my Tablet again. Everything seems for me to be so much more intuitive and operational.

I got it rooted, thanks. As far as My Magazine and a ton of other stuff, I use Titanium and freeze all the stuff I don't use. Now....any suggestions on a solid ROM?

Thanks for the suggestion for Titanium. As for the ROM, I have yet to find a custom ROM for 4.3 that I like. I just use the stock from sammobile.
