I've been using the same 32gb sd card since my gs2. I just transfered it to m919 and it worked just fine since then. But ever since I updated to 4.4.2, I can explore the sd card, but I can't move or delete files. Any suggestions?

KitKat was the first version of Android where OEMs fully complied with Googles initiative to restrict App access to the SD Card. Apps that before could read and write to the SD Card can do so no longer. They may only use the internal storage. There have been many discussions as to why Google made this change but no one knows for sure. It sucks hard.

Yes, you can Root it without bricking. You can use the link in my signature to use CF-Auto-Root.

However, it will trip the Knox flag in the bootloader. What that means is that the phone will set a flag that you have installed a custom recovery, and so therefore you've messed with the phone. Some people are worried that this will mean that you can't have warranty work done on the phone. Some say that no one checks this. I don't know the answer to that. Some people say that using ODIN to reinstall a stock image will remove the flag, but I haven't tried it to verify it.
