Default How do I root a galaxy s4 sprint with kitkat???

I just updated to kitkat and had to flash a 4.3 stock rom first because every time I tried to update it would boot back up in 4.3, now I have updated to 4.4.2. Now how do I root it? Last time I used cf-autoroot but that was 4.3 is it any different?

Well first you can do some searching. Then reading. And you'll find in the CF-Autoroot forum your answer(s) too.
* MK2/NAE ROMs * NAE Modem * 4.3/4.4 Kernels * MF9 Bootloader *

if you've found any of my blathering useful, there is a thanks button that can be hit.

I would be and I have been, but it seems that you could have had your answer within a couple minutes of just searching.
XDA is NOT a support site, though we do provide support to those that are willing to first try and help themselves.
It seems that in the past couple months the Q&A and other sections are filling up with redundant questions that are answered already in stickies, how-to's and the forums themselves. Often time the very same question (like yours) has been asked and answered a dozen or more times already.
Answer is yes to your question, just grab the lates from the threads site.

Yes I understand, but if you actually see my question it was more asking if cf autoroot would still work with kitkat.... not where do I receive it.. I have searched these before and I have the files on my computer, so to the other guy I have tried searching myself first. But I didn't know if cf autoroot updated to kitkat or if it even has too. I'm a guy that came from IOS (I hated that) and we had to wait for jailbreaks.. when I searched how to root galaxy s4 4.4.2 tutorials, factory unlocked versions of the s4 showed up. Which obviously I do not have.. and if I added sprint none would show up...

Well I'm glad you hated iOS. Lol

Here's my post from earlier that answers your question.
