Anyone wanting to root the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 device and install a custom recovery should definitely install the Flashify application. With Flashify, we can queue up many files to flash at once. The files you can flash include zip files for your ROMs and kernels, boot images, new mods, recovery images and more. You can queue up the files so they can continually flash without you having to reboot the device in between flashes.
The CF-Auto-Root exploit in this guide is based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and the KOT49H.I9200XXUDNF3 firmware. You do not need to be running that same KOT49H.I9200XXUDNF3 firmware build ID on your Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.2 smartphone. You should be using it as an indicator. SOme Samsung smartphones and tablets will not boot the older images.
