Default Different rooting methods? Difference between them?

I'm a little confused. There seems to be a few methods for rooting the T-Mobile varient of the Galaxy S 4, however I'm not exaclty sure on the difference between them.

Right now I only see 2 types, but I believe there may be more?

I'm referring to:

Root method #1: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2294005
Root method #2: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2268880

If someone could tell me the difference, that'd be great.

Cheers.
Current phone: Samsung Galaxy S4 (T-Mobile, my hero.)
Retired phones: HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon), Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX (Verizon), Samsung Galaxy S3 (Verizon), Samsung Galaxy S4 (Sprint, eww!)

The second one was the earlier version. It was more complicated.

The first one came later and simplified everything into almost a single mouse click.

They do the same thing.
