I don't fully understand your question, but I think you're asking if putting it in download mode will erase your phone?
Putting your phone in download mode won't erase your phone. The only way to completely wipe out your phone to the point of it not booting is by wiping the system partition with Safestrap.
Before you begin using the apps I mentioned, I recommend reading about them, what they do and the dangers/benefits of using them until your eyes bleed. It's a steep learning curve, so take your time and research before trying anything you don't fully understand. Bricking a $700 phone is not fun...
@AnmiacAndroid Here is a list of apps that members have reported to be safe to freeze. Remember, just freeze them and don't uninstall them. Please research how to use Titanium Backup Pro. Check Youtube for a how - to video. Good luck. Also, the only dumb question, is the one you don't ask.Yes, 700$ is what i want to keep. I sometime factory reset my phone to make it fresh one and i really don't want root cause any problem to my phone since i have rooted it.
One more question: Would you please show me what system app is not necessary on my at&t note 3. My battery is draining real fast and i just want to freeze some app instead of changing room. I am living in asia.
Thank you very much,

Would you please provide the link of the list which you have stated above ?
By the time this happens it will no longer matter. The Note 4 will probably be out by Aug or Sept

That comment fits your name.
And just because a new device launches, doesn't mean the previous model just shuts down and becomes worthless. Not to everyone will jump to the new device. Some can't afford it and have to wait for either money, or an upgrade.
That attitude is what kills development. It may not matter to you, or Joe Blow in a different device forum, but it will still be important to a ton of us. Even those of us (myself included) who plan on upgrading on launch day. Development doesn't stop with new releases.

Like the post above, are people not able to receive the OTA 4.4.2 update successfully because they have once rooted using the Kingo Root method?
Updated to 4.4.2 successfully with rooted NB4.
I was on NB4 rooted with Kingo 1.18. No custom recovery, just a simple root. Had SuperSU, ES File Explorer and Titanium Backup installed (that required root). Had bunch bloatware (AT&T and Sumsung apps) frozen using Titanium. I unfroze At&T Software Update, FW Upgrade, and Local FOTA. Enabled SuperSU survival mode, then proceeded with the upgrade with no issues.
Things to note, I did loose root after 4.4.2 update. I never flashed any custom rom or leaked rom on this phone. On rooted NB4, the boot screen said Custom, now it simply show Samsung Galaxy Note 3 logo. I did NOT have to uninstall root before applying 4.4.2 update.
So you DO NOT need to uninstall kingo 1.18 NB4 root before the update, those of you with custom recovery, safestrap etc maybe running into other issues unrelated to root causing the update to fail.
