Will that work on 4.3, and what do you know about Croat?

Do you have any warranty left on your phone? If you do, rooting may trip the Knox counter and void the warranty.

Rooting will certainly allow you to remove bloatware and the like.

Do you have VMWare on your mac? If you do, you may be able to follow one of the 4.3 rooting guides that requires a PC.

As a side note, rooting will not automatically make your phone better.

If you have access to a PC, try this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2538991
