What's md5?

Odin. I don't have but I know it's something for the pic to connect/work on samsung devices.

Did you have the slot stuff setup? What that lost after ota? When you say you used Kingo is that like saying you followed the whole entire rooting with Kingo process again? Or somehow just pointed back to the slot you were using?

Why load is the rom in slot 1 built on? If not the new load. Then why the the OTA?

Thanks for clarification.
Pit file is the partition file you use with the tar/md5 for odin to flash back to complete stock. Which you can find here:[GUIDE] VZW Note III Edition[Return to Stock or recover from a Soft Brick and More] - xda-developers

I do not use a rom slot setup, I simply have the stock rom in the stock slot. I was posting because Kingo DOES reroot MJE, what I did was go back to complete stock with odin then took the OTA, then used Kingo to root

Kingo does indeed work to root MJE which was what I posted a few posts back, root/ safestrap wise nothing changed between MJ7 and MJE the big problem would have been if they changed SELinux to Enforcing but it stayed the same
