I have a simple request. Can someone pull the apk for the updated Samsung keyboard if you get root with the update?
I would appreciate it.

And I wonder is Kingo would actually root this update 

Someone already posted that they re-rooted with Kingo. See post #25.

This time, however, I did feel the need to comment in regards to rooting the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3 using two different methods. First...I used the Vega method, which worked, but not without a lengthy set of step-specific instructions and quite a large (over 2gb) file to download. Then...AT&T sent out an OTA update which my phone decided to automatically download and install without my permission. This OTA unrooted my phone as it did to a lot of people. I jumped on here to read about this OTA and saw that several people were talking about rooting with Kingo. This piqued my interest and since I was already planning on re-rooting with Vega and set aside a block of time to do so, I went ahead and downloaded the Kingo file to give it a try and it worked....impressively well. And this is why I'm posting...Kingo was an extremely easy program to root and I didn't lose any information during the process. It was seamless. It's an easy *** user interface that gives you a hand full of instructions (ie: connect phone; click start) and does the rest for you unlike it's rival, Vega, which comes with a laundry list of steps to complete the process. I literally downloaded the file, ran it, plugged my phone in and clicked start...it was that easy. So far, so good. I just wanted to post this so that other people that may look at rooting their phone as a complicated process can know their is a much easier way to do so.

So, to sum it up...both ways can and will root your phone...but Kingo was a breeze.
You forgot to mention the part where Kingo needlessly copies your serial number and imei and ships them off to China. Important bit of user info. That's why they are banned here.

Personally, I don't have that answer. But it must not be very good as those that do know banned them from xda until they can prove they have cleaned up their code. Thay don't ban you for writing good code.
