    My understanding is there is no way to currently root an AT&T GNote 3 on 4.4.2 which is the most current firmware.

    What I wrote above was true for the day I wrote it but now indeed towelroot is a wonderful tool. This dev is great even those of us who unfortunately had Kernel version 3.4.0-257432 can now use towelroot directly on the device and it works like a charm!

    Yes towelroot works amazingly well.

    But how about getting back to factory image and removing custom recovery to get something done inside the warranty? Flashing back is a whole new ballgame with this bootloader. It sucks. I hate ATT because they think we're stupid and will never buy another sammy phone again because of this. I'm getting rid of this POS and buying a nexus.

    If all you did was root and/or install Safestrap, you can uninstall both of them. (Uninstall Safestrap, then remove busybox, then uninstall root.)

    If you flashed a different ROM and don't have a backup of your stock ROM, there's a UrDroid thread on XDA that will give you an Odin-installable rooted stock ROM (use the Odexed one, in case they actually check.) Install it and unroot it.

    Unfortunately, with more people bringing their phones to work at large corporations, I think we'rre going to see more manufacturers locking phones down. The percentage of people who care whether the bootloader is locked or not is tiny. It's like orphan drugs - if they're not going to make a large amount of money selling unlocked phones, they're not going to design them.

    I used Towel Root and went without any issues. Thanks Rukbat for your input...but one further question to add. If I've installed a rom on the "stock slot" using safestrap; and if I did backup the orginal rom...then I could flash the original rom back to stocked slot and then unroot?

    Thanks in advance!
    Who am I? Well sir, that's classified!

    You could - but rooting sometimes leaves junk, which the update picks up and refuses to update. Also some apps running rooted change system stuff. (Updating a rooted phone can brick it, depending on what you did while rooted.)

    Try N900AUCUCNC2 ODIN Files - Post #136 - XDA Forums It gives you a stock out-of-the-box 4.4.2 phone. (Use the 4 files in the Odin slots to return it back so far that you'll have to run the setup screen again. The all-in-one updates to 4.4.2, but leaves your files there - and if you have a terminal, or some app that won't run without root, someone may notice.
