Question Root method for build KOT49H.I545VRUFNC5?

I have a SCH-i545 model GS4 running build number KOT49H.I545VRUFNC5, and I'm looking to try to root my phone, but I can't seem to locate a rood method that says it works for that build. Is it just too new of a build? To rare? Am I just being a moron and looking in the wrong place? I'd really appreciate some help, as there are a few things bugging me about the phone since I updated to KitKat that I know rooting would help.

Thanks! Is there a method being worked on? If so, I can be patient. If not, I'll go ahead and look into the downgrade/upgrade methods.

theres no native method being worked on that hasnt been explored at this time. the trouble is we dont want to break knox or trigger it by rooting that would break our warranty. otherwise there are a few options from the international version that would work for us too its just ummm whats the point when you can downgrade then upgrade and avoid triggering knox and come out with root and safestrap which is what everyone wants/needs to flash a custom rom. you can check out my thread in my signature for the easiest way known to man.

Thank you! That makes sense, I suppose. Ok, I'll try that then.

Where can I find that native root method that would trigger knox. I don't care about the warranty, and didn't even know there was an option.

I'm pretty sure there isn't one for NC5.

i used this method and it worked great.... my question (which may be stupid) is?? the swap call function on the keypad dial was switched to record call which I don't need. Is their any way to fix this so I retain add/swap call function? I don't need record call at all or the black keys.
