Default quick question possibly/root

what is the best method of getting root on the s4 with please see screenshot, trying to help a friend but very unsure of all the firmware versions that go along with this phone and with the crazy knox antics.

CF auto root. Know that this is the only way (from my knowledge) to root NAE and it will trip Knox flag from 0x0 to 0x1.

ok thanxs, then just load recovery through odin. correct?
what exactly will knox do when tripped? from what i have been reading it just voids warranty? also once rooted and flashed twrp he will only be able to run NAE roms or can he downgrade firmware through twrp to run other roms such as cm? sorry i dont have the phone in hand, usually i just jump in and figure it out for myself however without the device its kind of been a pain.
