Default Unlocked ATT Galaxy Note 3 question.

Hi Guys, I'm considering purchasing a Note 3 that's currently on ATT and having it unlocked to work on T-Mobile. Once I unlock it, when I am looking to have it rooted, do I follow the steps for T-Mobile root, or for ATT root? Also, when flashing roms, would I use a T-mobile or ATT kernel?

I have a lot of experience rooting devices, but have never tried rooting an unlocked device from a different carrier. Thanks for your help.

Follow the steps for the N900A (ATT variant). By following the directions for another device you're asking for a brick.

Rooting a locked or unlocked device is no different. The only difference may be differences in the EFS/NV items after a unlock which are completely separate from the system.

You'll need to use everything from the AT&T section.
