Default Auto-root using sgh-i727??

So, any auto-root guides I find instruct to use the autoroot file for sghi727, which is an AT&T Model, not even a galaxy S phone as far as I can tell.
are either of the following guides accurate?
http://www.droidgator.com/how-to-roo...y-s4-sch-i545/
http://wccftech.com/guide-root-veriz...xy-s4-schi545/

Ive screwed up too many times being impatient and jumping at the first guide I see. Can I get confirmation on how to Auto-root SCH-i545?
I do not want to install roms and don't really need a recovery, just wanting to know how to auto-root.

First off, I appreciate the reply. I did go ahead and read most of what was on the link you gave me, along with some of the links provided there-in... and from what I can tell, it doesn't cover "auto-root" options, it's ability or inability. Only to confirm that I cannot flash custom recoveries onto it, which I don't have any interest in doing anyway, as my firmware base is VRUEMK2 even if I was interested.

My question still remains: Is there an auto-root method/option for SCH-i545

I'll not sure exactly what you're looking for in an Auto Root.

But it doesn't get any easier than Saferoot.

You weren't kidding. Extremely easy. "Saferoot" is basically exactly what I was looking for. I guess there are various terms for the same process... "auto-root" is the one im more familiar with, which from what I can tell, usually uses Odin. Thank you very very much, I appreciate the help.

Glad that worked for you. You were probably thinking of CF Auto Root which is also really really easy to do, just not possible on our Verizon S4s ...of course lol
