Unhappy [Q] Problem with rooting galaxy s4 running Android 4.3

I have a galaxy s4 gt-i9500 just upgraded to jelly bean 4.3. I rooted with it Christmas autoroute using Odin. It all went well but I noticed that while rebooting it doesn't shows that Android is upgrading like what I used to see when I rooted it while it running Android 4.2.2.

Also when I checked it using root checker the message "Please wait for root checker to complete. The system seems running very slow." I wait for quite a long time and then it showed that the rooting is failed.

What did I go wrong?? I tried it several times but still the same. Any help.!!

You could boot it into fastboot mode, flash CWM or TWRP and flash a custom ROM

Due to Knox sometimes the root process doesn't work straight away. I had to flash it a couple of times and then it went through.
