I'm still trying to figure out how to get root back onto my phone from my phone since I don't have access to a computer where I'm at. I'm basically just screwed and also stuck on MDL baseband with a MK2 build running 4.3 stock so I'm getting no downloads at all. XDA the app itself too 10min to download
Any insight would be greatly appreciated...I knew I should have just waited until I I had access to a pc but I jumped the gun of course. I've been looking around a lot and the only methods of rooting I've found require or use a pc.

A stock firmware package makes the phone all stock. MDL baseband on an MK2 build means you didn't flash a stock firmware. Which 'stock' firmware did you flash?
As to root, did this 'stock' firmware also flash recovery? if it didn't you can download the recovery flashable supersu zip from chainfire's website into the phone and do it that way. Otherwise, I don't think there is a way to get root access from the OS itself, unless you find an exploit that grants su access so you can make system writable and push supersu.
