Default [Q] galaxy s4 mf3 rooting

hi i have the at&t galaxy s4 with the mf3 baseband and i would like to root it.
i was wondering if there be any way to restore back to stock? like if i dont want it rooted anymore or i mess it up can take it off and go back to complete stock?

i know "Odin" wont work with the mf3 but how bad can you mess it up to actually need to use a recovery tool? is it easy to ruin it by doing to rooting process?

i want to root my galaxy to be able to install the tmobile rom on it to use wifi calling. and use the safestrap recovery to install the rom
if everything goes well and works will i be able to remove it all and go back to stock?
or if everything goes bad and i ruin it can i recover back to stock?
im curious if its worth the risk at all? or is there not a big risk?

Odin does work on MF3, and you CAN restore your phone to stock, you just need to download the tar files. General section, mf3 md5 files thread.

General section, SafeRoot thread will take care of your root requests. It's so easy a monkey could do it.

You won't get T-Mobile wifi calling on a non T-Mobile phone unless big changes have been made since I left the company last year, but you can flash roms with SafeStrap.
