They are both exyos dont know about bootloader. Ive tried several times, several ODINs. i matched the software with the device on CF.
Is this something you or chainfire can provide?

I've updated my Galaxy S4 "I9505" to latest firmware build date : Sat, 25 Feb 2017 03:19:43 +0000
the problem that it can not be rooted With CF-Root or any other rooting tools
I have tried Flashfire to keep the SU from the old to the new Build the same issue >_<
I decided to download another Firmware ( I9505XXSHQB1 ) the same problem cannot be rooted
I will upload to you the "Recovery.img" from the firmware file as you mentioned in your website :
When newer firmwares are released for a certain device, sometimes that firmware includes new bootloaders that prevent kernels based on the old firmwares from booting. This usually coincides with a transition to a newer Android version. In that case, the CF-Auto-Root for download here may no longer work - flashing or booting might fail. It is too much work for me to keep track of all these firmwares, so if you encounter this issue, it is up to you to submit the recovery.img file from the latest firmware for your device to the CF-Auto-Root thread on XDA-Developers.com.
To be clear, just because you have a newer Android version than listed here, does NOT mean the CF-Auto-Root will not work - there's a good chance that it will!
I've uploaded the "Recovery.img" into a Zip file to bypass XDA Limit size
This is the last log file from Flashfire : https://pastebin.com/4rK7Rr4W
Thankx in advance
Hes already explained it time and time again. It even states it on the download page.
First of all, wasn't sure if it was allowed to post on this thread (it's odd, 4 days old and no post), as I've seen nothing saying I shouldn't, here I go.
Newbie question here:
1) Is it possible to flash CWM Recovery with this root?
2) I'm willing to flash it, should I then just root using CF-Root(non-auto) as it already comes with CWM?
3) The version of CWM on CF-Root (non-auto) is already outdated, would it be a problem if I just flashed the new version over it with ODIN (download it from clockworkmod.com/rommanager and flash)?
I ask this because I want to keep my phone as stock as possible, but want to be able to perform a Nandroid backup and flash some ZIPs (if there's a way to perferm/restore Nandroid backups and flash ZIPs w/o CWM please tell me how )
