What surprised me when i looked up for the root and recovery for the S4 and didn't find the easy few steps like i had with older Samsung phones in Forums here on XDA but it actually exists. why no body put it here?
i was so worried that the Exynos octa will make the samsung flagship root as hard as the rest if not harder.
galaxys4root.com has the way to do the root s4 i9500 with odin in few steps exactly like S3. you don't need to download 1.5GB pre-rooted roms or anything else big for that matter.

i don't know if i could (according to the forum law) do the complete "how to" right here or even share this, but i'm sure guys here know what to do with this

this method is for the international i9500 octa and for the other kinds of S4 there are other methods available now.
