Will this New root method work on this phone??? Or just for 9505 ver. Phone was rooted before I install Kit Kat updates. But now when I click Super SU app it says "There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. Thanks for any help on this New root method.

It should work on your device. Remember, though, it just roots, still no custom recovery other than safestrap

After I root with Towelroot, will I still be able to get the 4.4.3 Update OTA when it comes out?? Also if I then do get 4.4.3 and install, will I keep my boot?? Or back to 0 and have to wait for a way to root it?

I'm only guessing based on experience on other devices. Generally the ota will work but you do lose root. So yes, there will probably need to be a new and different root method once 4.4.3 comes out.

Also, if you have root and modify or delete any system files the ota will fail.

Thanks jd1639, will just wait till 4.4.3 since maybe not that long away. But AT&T sure does not get in any hurry. Hope you had a nice Father's Day.

From what I have read it only works on NC1 firmware. Users reported that it didn't work on NB1.

Did you still have root after the uninstall?
