Default [Q] shv-e370k (korean model)

Hello, does anyone have any experience with the SHV-E370K (Korean domestic version of Galaxy S4 Mini LTE)?
specifically, i'm looking to root it, but i'm wondering if this method is possible:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2364980

I am wondering if, as usual, the Korean version has a slightly different motherboard than the international version (GT-I9195) and thus cannot use the GT-I9195 rooting method in the link above?

Thanks a lot

According to my research, there is no difference. I am using the same model as you. And I also couldn't see any difference in the hardware. Does your Group Play work? And how if we flash an official rom like France or India on these models? We wont loose OTA?

the korean version has LTE cat 4 at 150m, whiles the rest is cat 3 at 100m.

The korean version also known as the E370K, E370S and E370L, differences being different radio support for different network.

this might be a noob question, but does that affect the rooting method? (same for international and korean version?)

You can use CWM from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2398143, and root with this http://download.chainfire.eu/381/Sup...erSU-v1.91.zip. Thanks to Arco and Chainfire
