    It "unrooted" because the 5.0 update isn't rooted. (It's the ROM that gets rooted, not the hardware.)

    See XDA Forums for the Note 3 for your carrier to see if anyone has a root method for the phone. (If it's AT&T, you'll have to flash 4.4.2 or 4.4.4, then see [Rooted OR Stock] Update Procedure For Lolli… | AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3 | XDA Forums for a rooted 5.0 ROM.)

    If you have a root method for the 5.0 ROM for that model S3, sure. (Rooting is, at its basics, trivial. You put a file named su in the /system/bin folder. But to do that you have to be rooted, so Catch 22. People who come up with root methods find little bugs that allow them to gain root access just long enough to copy one file, and that's all it takes. But then the manufacturer or Google patches that bug, and someone has to find one for the next update.)
