If you've installed the new Kitkat leak for the Verizon Note 3 (and you really really should install it -- see below for reasons why):
MAKE SURE YOU NEVER TAKE ANY OTA.
Here is a brief (and yet startling) list of advantages to the leaked Kitkat build that could be done away with in ANY future OTA for the Note 3:
- At anytime you can use ODIN to go back to 4.3 for root, disaster recovery etc.
- This leaked Kitkat build allows for *ANY* compatible kernel module to be used. Unlike any previous Note 3 build ever. No whitelist security is in place to block kernel modules which are not "approved". (pointed out by @ryanbg)
- It's Kitkat but SElinux permissive. Also very very rare.
There are so many unique things about this build, that every user who installs it should treat it like gold and avoid OTAs like the plague.

And a new Safestrap for use with the new KK build (you'll need a 4.3 compatible Safestrap for the root process and a 4.4 compatible Safestrap for use after upating):
If you ever get a chance make sure to send thanks over to sxtpdevelopers (I don't think he has an XDA username anymore).
