Default [Q] Question about rooting S4 GT-I9505

Hi all,

I am looking for a guide to root the Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 Black Edition, build number JSS15J.I9505XXUENAA. Device was bought before a couple of days with Android 4.3, Kernel version is 3.4.0-2082040se.infra@R0210-18 #1 and SE for android status: enforcing SEPF_GT-I9505_4.3_0014. Secure boot status is Samsung.
This is possibly an international version without any special software installed (except the Samsung standard utilities).
I have used Framaroot software in the past to root the I9000 but afaik it can't root the I9505 so please let me know which rom to use and root the device.

Thanks in advance.
