I just bought a T-Mobile Note 3 (N-900T) with 4.4.2 out of the box and have been looking through a billion posts trying to figure out how to root it. Some of the things I read suggest that something else might have been done first, because I'm joining in the middle of the ball game. So far I think I've found four ways to root:
1. Root de la Vega (for 4.4.2?).
2. Install TWRP (Installs Recovery and su?).
3. CF Auto Root (trips Knox?).
See how confused I am? I lost the fourth way. I can't figure out if any actually work on a new 4.4.2.
My desire is root and Recovery, no custom ROM and no Kingo/Vroot.
