Default [Q] MAJOR problems rooting Galaxy S4

I've tried motochopper, the android terminal method, and just about everything obvious and have been horribly unsuccessful in rooting my gs4.
-Motochopper ended in an error message saying it failed to root.
-android terminal likewise gave me an error---I guess the SD card is suppose to be formatted to exFat but when I do that it gives me a "damaged SD card" error and I have to reformat to something different.

Attached are SS of all my errors as well as the 'about phone' settings tab which has all the information about my phone build. Carrier is AT&T in USA.

I had no problems unlocking, rooting, and modding my Atrix 4g years ago, can anyone offer me advice on how to root my (sort of) recently purchased S4??
