This Autorrot will trigger knox flag (works on 4.4.2) but if you don't care about it, go ahead and you will be Rooted. Don't forget to give him a thanks

got it working thanks.

I am buying a new S4. Apparently it comes with 4.2x on it. So, should I root it from there or upgrade to 4.4.2 official? I was thinking if I did it from 4.2, I'd avoid the knox issue and then upgrade to a custom ROM later and still not have a knox problem.... or I am way off base?
