Shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone seeing Samsung's past performance, but still. Due to some of the strangeness going on while working with the Polish 4.4 Note3 update's kernels, I wanted to look at the sauce. As it wasn't listed yet on Samsung's Open Source Release Center, I put in an official request for sources. Their response was as follows:
Lots of new stuff, please read the entire post!
I've just uploaded these CF-Auto-Roots for the Note 10.1 2014 models. Most of you running these devices will probably already have rooted, but I would be grateful if you have one of these if you can test it anyway, and report success or failure.
Samsung keeps switching things in their bootloaders, their /system, and their protections. Naturally this requires an update to Triangle Away for these new firmwares.
I have just updated the CF-Auto-Root for the Note3, and it now works with the 4.4.2 firmware for the Note3.
So a few hours ago I was informed there was a Android 4.4 KitKat leak for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Unfortunately they changed some stuff around and SuperSU stopped working.

My download server has been completely hammered the last few days with requests, so I guess there's a lot of new phones out there that needed rooting. As I was celebrating xmas myself with my family I didn't have a chance to do much about it. I have however made some changes now to the caching mechanisms and such, so the downloads should all be back up.
I'm just going to leave this here ... (and run off to unpack presents with my family)
Nothing spectacular in this update. Most noteworthy are that a number of issues with the TL-MR3040 were fixed, so if you're using one (see http://dslrcontroller.com/guide-wifi_mr3040.php ) you should update the app as well as the TL-MR3040 firmware !
