    Bought a rooted Note 3 N900w8 32gb in black.

    It is rooted which I do not mind, but for the life of me I cannot tell what Rom I am currently running.

    In about all I see is:

    Jss15j.n900w8vlubmis in the Build number

    That's still the stock ROM it shipped with. Your just rooted without having a custom ROM installed.

    DPB is right, just understand that installing any updates from Samsung might break that root if you are concerned at all with keeping it.

    No, that won't break root, because your only updating apps and "bloatware" but a firmware upgrade will.

    If the firmware isn't written to not update rooted phones. Some do, some don't. I think the Note 3 does - and, of course, with an unrooted ROM. Root de la paina.

    By updates from Samsung I mean like updates to the firmware, not software. If android updates from samsung come to your device they might break root.

    Plain being rooted should not interfere with OTA updates, Kies might not like your device being rooted, but OTA (Over The Air - using Wifi or network) should work OK, it certainly worked on my SGS4. Updating the firmware by any official method will get rid of root.

    If you click about device in the settings and download an update from there yes it will break your root

    It is and it isn't ocnbrze. I believe the Note 3 N900 8w is the same spec but has a different modem to the Note 3 (SM-N9005) which we are strictly speaking in this root forum about. The OP must be careful to flash correct firmware for their device.

    Daniel, type *#1234# into the dialler and tell us what the three lines of information show exactly. If your rooted this might invoke the super user application, if it does just tap the back soft key. It does sound like your using rooted stock firmware.
