To answer your question, No there is no verified safe method to root MK2 if you are not already rooted prior to update.

Kingo works for MK2. I can confirm it worked with no added instability or apparent issues on the 2 I337 devices I've messed with. But is it reliable? Well, it does send your IMEI to a Chinese server for some unknown reason. You can try Vroot if you want but it's definitely not as 'user friendly' if you catch my drift.

Samsung T100 (2001-2003)
Moto RAZR V3i (2003-2005)
Nokia 6620 (2005-2007)
iPhone (2007-2009)
iPhone 3G (2009-2012)
Samsung GS2 Skyrocket (2012-2013)
Samsung GS4 (2013-Present)

Hit THANKS if I was helpful, and you shall be blessed greatly.

So this definitely works? Now I've never had it rooted so this would be a first time root. Can you post a link

XDA evidently considers Kingo malware, so no link from here. But just type "kingo galaxy s4 root" into Google and it should be the top result. Their website states that it is for the i9500, but it has been confirmed for the i337. As always, USE THIS PROCEDURE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

We have a safe new root method if you guys want to try it. This is confirmed working on the VZW S4 but should work for you guys too. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48392009
