Could anyone give some info on what's the easiest way to get to a rooted stock Kitkat rom?
I'm currently running a rooted stock 4.3 rom with a couple of xposed modules with Team Win Recovery.

I can't update through the settings menu, because my phone is rooted, so i'll have to do it manually. Preferably I would like to update without the loss of data, just like an official update. It's no crisis if I have to though, I can always make a backup if I have to do a full wipe.

Flash the official KitKat update through Odin. You shouldn't lose any data. The root using CF- Auto Root

find the stock rom from samsung-updates.com or sammobile.com and flash through Odin 3.07 or TWR
