    When I try to update it says "Your device has been modified. Software updates are not available." How do I update now?

    It works via Kies, I was in the same situation and updated a couple of nights ago. Takes about 20 minutes.

    I would suggest to just push some new firmware via ODIN.

    Just be aware that, I know with Verizon at least, it is easier root your device on 4.3 then upgrade to 4.4 rather than lose root to 4.4 then root.

    Also I have moved this thread into the Sprint Root Forum to get some assistance from other rooted Sprint Note 3 users.
