We had originally pulled all links to kingo as they didn't meet our requirements for app safety and gpl compliance. XDA has since worked with the developers to create a safer and trusted application. If they had not been cooperative, these threads would still be closed.
TL;DR - kingo is now safe and OK to use.
Even works on new updated firmware At&t pushed out.
Kingo is updated. They have more updates coming.
Lot of people now trust this method and It is one of the only ways to root right now.
I am using this method and have been since it came out.
11/26/13 On a warranty replacement with latest Kingo Root and firmware.
No problems what so ever, phone is perfect so far.
This method is so much faster and works perfectly.
Confirmed and working great on AT&T Note 3.
Does not trip the knox counter.
(It does show Custom Status but you can change it)
No factory reset, and no wiping data !!!!!!
One Click and your done.
After that you can install XposedInstaller and WANAM.
There are some kool things you can do with that.
For one > Make it show Official Status instead of Custom.
My phone is sicker now !!!!!!! SWEET
