    I can't say I'm happy about the Kingo, but at the same time. With the highest percentage of the best developers of our device having Root, it is unlikely that anyone is going to try to find an alternative to Root in this current stage when Kingo is a last alternative. Once, Kitkat launches, we are going to see Brand New Bounties for New Root and Unlocked Bootloaders, which most likely we will get both of those unlocked rather quickly, as it is usually easier to "break in a new pair of shoes than it is to break in an old pair of worn out shoes." :biggrin:

    Ah okay, guess it is no worse than Google.

    Yeah I had survival mode on and the fake system status, and paid for the pro version.

    Oh well, update seems good. Miss my custom boot and root apps though.

    Guess I will try Kingo

    Can't get Kingo to see my phone, might be because I am running Windows 8.1. Going to boot up my Windows 7 VM and see if it works from there.

    Edit: Worked fine from the Windows 7 VM, guess it was Windows 8.1. As Kachow says, can't say I like rooting my device in a way where I am not too sure what is happening with my phone. I do enjoy having root access back though.

    Thanks for the info on the update. My phone last checked for updates on 10/15/13, thought it would check more often than that. I am stock non-rooted, hoping the it improves to marginal area signal strength.
    I also have problems with previously read emails reopening as unread, (blue). Some were reopened a week later. Otherwise I love the phone.
    I use Avilution aviation maps on my N3 as a backup to my note 10.1 tablet. Even my old eyes can see the detail with the N3.

    I used Kingo, I have my doubts about their method. However it got me root back.

    If all they want is my serial, IMEI, and model name they can have it.

    Say BYE-BYE to Kingo, well for those of you that have been following the saga that continues with this latest update. Hashcode for those who didn't know took the Kingo Update, which he and many skilled others knew what we were in for, but the chance for Root was great to take the risk. Anyhow, it appears there is now a way to use Kingo to gain Root, then Remove it after gaining Root, returning back to our safe version of Chainfire's SuperSU version 1.65. It almost seemed like a no-brainer after I came across it in one of his post. Refer first to post, [RECOVERY LOCKED] Safestrap Recovery v3.63 (BETA) [2013-11-07] - Page 22 - (VZW) Galaxy Note 3 Development - RootzWiki With this post you are basically going to Chainfire's site and downloading SuperSU 1.65 in the .zip to flash, which will remove the Kingo apk and su. Hashcode recommends using his Safestrap to flash the zip. I on the other hand am still having some issues with SS, therefore I am finding Flash Gordon to be more effective and easier to use, xda-developers - View Single Post - [APK][Flash Zips WITHOUT a Recovery!]Flash Gordon: an Edify to Bash parser/translator I have included the link to Flash Gordon which it is an app, works very easily just download the SuperSU 1.65.zip to your device find the zip with Flash Gordon and run it, then Reboot it and your done. No more Kingo.

    I would imagine, for those that are on the latest update that did not take Root, if you want to, you can use Kingo, follow this thread and dump Kingo ASAP! Clean As Can Be!:icon_ lala:
