Question [Q] Root with JB 4.3 (keeping Knox warranty)

Hey everyone,
I really tried to avoid making a new thread for this but I got totally lost in the forums...

I got my S4 (GT-I9505) with Android JB 4.3 and my filmware looks like this: I9505XXUEMK8
The KNOX WARRANTY VOID switch is 0x0 and I want to keep it like this.

Which guide should I follow to root my device while keeping the knox warranty intact?

At the moment there (afaik) is no guaranteed way to do this on 4.3 with the new boot loaders

so you mean there's anyone who have achieved this so far?
I think I saw some ppl talking about vroot and how they made it for a note 3.. I thought I9505 wouldnt make a difference..

Some people in Spanish forum did it using vroot, it only works in i9505.

All those references about malware, how serious are they?
Someone suggested me just to replace the superuser app after I finish the procedure with the official one and I would be ok..

Has anyone from here tried any of these two methods (vroot/kingo)?
