there was with 4.3 using Kingo app or Saferoot. But it seems neither have been updated to work with 4.4.2. CF auto root is the only way i know right now to root and that roots the phone my installing a temporary custom recovery which trips knox. so as of now there is no way to root 4.4.2 without tripping knox.
Right that's what I thought. I know I kept up with my homework and reading but I thought perhaps I missed something..lol. Thanks!!
