Here is a couple of more. I figure its better to keep them all in one place so people can decide which guide they want to use.

I think there might be a couple more out there but this should help people to answer any possible question about rooting that they could ever have.

If you have the AT&T OTA (MF3) for the SGH-I337 S4, the method in the OP does not work. Here is a method for rooting MF3:

For Canadian MG1 Firmware, try CF Auto-Root download for the SGH-I337M:

Just sold my Rogers S2 LTE because I upgraded to the S4. My quick question, if I ROOT and retain the original Samsung Recovery will I be able to still get and do official firmware upgrades? This is the only thing stopping me from going forward with rooting.

You can still get updates, but you will loose your root access with each update.

yeah sure!

similar method worked for my GS III; havent tested the GS IV with different sim just yet but GF's old GS III is working just fine for her sister in Canada (Bell i think). GF found it actually, and did it to hers 1st. ill know if it works when we leave for work in Montreal next week or if i bum a t-mobile cell from a friend.

WRONG, I am unable to update my device, it says that my phone has been modified, and yes, I have rooted it with this video.

DONATE TO ME
Whenever I try this method, when it goes to push the exploit, it says error multiple devices or something. when I only have the S4 plugged in. Followed step by step.

My phone is rooted and still shows official in phone status. There is a post on how to regain that status while still maintaining your root.
