    Default Rooting????

    Ok, I'm totally confused and don't know what to do. I have a SGs3 Verizon (unlocked) phone that runs using the Metro PCS/T-Mobile network. In "About Phone" it says it's running on 4.4.2 not too happy with it. Before I did that by accident it was running on JB 4.3 (loved that) can't get it back there though. How would I be able to tell if it's running on 4.4.2 Kitkat or just 4.4.2 whatever? How do I root it successfully so I get up to 4.4.4 Kitkat sooner then later? Thanks in advance.

    Anything after 4.4 is Kit Kat. Unfortunately you can't downgrade your firmware back to 4.3

    As far as 4.4.4 goes, it's really just bug fixes. If you have no reason to update other than getting a higher Android version I wouldn't recommend that you root your phone.
