Not yet you can't but I think they released one today but not tested by the masses so best you can do us wait so you don't crash your phone

You are talking about sense 4 roms but asking for root
You can't just flash sense4 roms...just because you have root access..
If you mean getting SOFF which will render you to flash roms then ..its not possible for you right now..but there is an alternative ...but that alternative costs you your warranty(most probably)..
So decision is yours...
I recommend you to stay stock as of now if you got loads of warranty left

I heard of this...it contains tacoroot which is a temporary root but I heard its unstable and it only gives root access in adb..shell which wont be helpful in your case
