    Will there ever be a way to root after the latest update?

    Maybe. We didn't think there would be one for 4.4.2 until Geohot figured out how to gain temporary root on that ROM. A lot of developers might give up on 4 and jump right to rooting 5. (Or - and I hope for this 24/7/365 - someone will come up with a pure Linux ROM that can run Android apks and is completely open source [and comes with su]. It will still do everything an Android phone will do, but not be Google-locked or carrier-locked as far as the ROM goes.)

    Are you a member of XDA? There are a number of current ROMs being continually developed for the VZW Note 3. That said, all the roms I saw were based on 4.4.2 (NC4)

    The Note 3 is by no means dead. I got mine in late August-not knowing the Note 4 was around the corner. It was between the Galaxy S5 and the Note 3. I fell in love with the s-pen and the screensize. So, Note 3 it was. All this said, I wish I had stuck with 4.4.2 and rooted and frozen the update apk. I noticed no changes for good or bad on 4.4.4 other than a new bootloader ever-so-slightly better battery life and no way to root

    Root will come.

    It may but only if the exploit found in the N4 happens to work on N3

    This is why I'm still on 4.4.2. Not gonna change over until a root method is found.
