I haven't seen any root solutions for NC5 yet.

Thanks Coycaine..Is there a way I can go back to build VRUEMK2 and then Root it from there. That way I can download a custom ROM for the 4.4.2 KitKat?? Does this make any sense? Sorry, i'm slowly learning all this.

If you already updated to kitkat there is absolutely no way u can downgrade unless u updated it using surge update to kitkat. But right now u r stuck in kitkat. For me I am still on rooted mk2 waiting for a root for kitkat. U should of waited before updating.

You may want to search these threads. I don't remember reading about anyone trying to downgrade from NC5 back to MK2 yet, but I'm sure someone has at least tried. The leaked KK build (NC2) was able to be downgraded, but with some problems/issues.

There are some that tried and are now bricked until there is an ODIN file for NC5.
If root is important, one should just be patient, sit back, wait.

You know what, i'm just going to take your advise and wait. I agree with you, there isn't any guarantee with the messages i have been reading.
Thanks Coycaine

I'm always amused by these "I took the update... Help I lost root" posts. It takes time and unless you're actively working on a root solution.... Leave the people alone and let them work. If root is important to you, then never update until a solution is found first or your stuck. No amount of begging will find a solution faster.

Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I do this...

Doctor: Don't do that.

(It's not clear what they expect, but I feel that stupidity should be painful. It's Darwin in action.)

Sugarhill, don't ever become a motivational speaker...you'd make a great Biff III though for Back To The Future 4!

Rizz, sorry to say... I'm glad your situation is what it is, now I have a thread to check on to see if a solution has been developed!
