Default 4.4.2 Kit Kat (i9500) Root Method I9500XXUFNB3

Root Method for this new release (Tested and worked flaweslly on Russia SER I9500XXUFNB3 released today 20/02/2014)

After you fresh install the rom you need to deknox your phone otherwise it wont work. So here we go.

1) Go and Download the " philz_touch_6.12.8-i9500.tar.md5 " located on this website
http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_A..._Edition/i9500

Install latest "philz_touch_6.12.8-i9500" via ODIN 1.85 Odin 1.85 For Rooting

Now go to the Philz recovery you just installed with odin..

-Flash the Deknox Removal Script <-- Click Here to direct download (VIA RECOVERY)
(Original DeKnox Thread) <-- Click Here to check out the hole theme (optional not needed)

After you flash the Knox removal script you are ready to go rooting your device.
Now go to
-Philz Options / Choose Re-root system / Choose Yes Apply (SuperSu)
-Wait until it finish, Reboot and install SuperSu from playstore
-Once installed, Open SuperSu app / It will ask you to update binaries click on Update as normal (NOT TWRP)
-Once binaries are installed reboot your device
-Root done.
Socialism is for everyone, including for those who want to apply it.

Thank you, works well, simple we can use any Odin
the Odin that OP provide couldn't turn off the auto reboot option.
since its for cf's auto root.

it should not have any boot problems at all. Since we are only giving root permisions,

Install the new 4.4.2 Kit Kat rom from Russia using odin 3.09v.. Then Flash via odin 1.85 (on this thread) the latest philz. go to Philz Settings , choose "Re-root system (supersu) , click "Yes - Apply SuperSu" wait some seconds, Reboot your phone, install SuperSu from playstore and you are done..
