Question [Q] Rooted update

Hi,

I have a S4 i9505, with Kingo Android ROOT.
I can't install CWM with Kingo, so I want CF Auto Root.
I also want KitKat 4.4.2 when available in my country.

1. Will I lose my data when un-rooting Kingo?
2. Will I lose my data when updating to 4.4.2 (via Kies if safe, or via Odin)?
3. Is it possible to unroot from Kingo and install other root (CF).
4. Do I have big chances to brick my phone with what I want?

Thanks, both of you.

So, what are the steps what I need to do to unroot Kingo (if needed), update to 4.4.2 if available in my country, and install CF?

1. Un-root Kingo (if necessarily otherwise skip this step).
2. Install 4.4.2 via Kies
3. Root with CF.

Are this the right steps, or do I miss something?

Just asking this to avoid bricking my phone.

Step 1: Download the firmware package and
Odin v3.09 , and extract the zip files.
Step 2: Run Odin3 v3.09 as an Administrator.
Step 4: Switch off the Galaxy S4 and put it in
Download Mode. To do this, press Volume
Down + Home + Power buttons.
Step 5: Connect the Galaxy S4 to the computer
via the USB cable while the phone is in the
Download mode. Wait until a blue sign
appears in Odin.
Step 6: Click on the AP button in Odin and
select the .tar.md5 file that was extracted in
Step 1.
Step 7: In Odin, select the Auto Reboot and F.
Reset Time options, but make sure that the re-
partition checkbox is not checked.
Step 8: Now, click on the Start button in Odin
to begin the installation process.
Step 9: Once the installation is complete, the
device will restart and a PASS message will
appear in the left-most box at the top of Odin.
Step 10: Once you get the Samsung logo on
the home screen, you can unplug the device
from the computer and close Odin.



These steps would make u hav 4.4.2 and unroot ur device both then u can apply respective method to root 4.4.2

I saw that 4.4.2 has a new bootloader. Can it be a problem when I try to upgrade to 4.4.2 via Odin?
