Default Rooting error

I tried rooting my S4 (SGH-i337) with both odin and Motochopper. Neither worked. Everytime I tried with Odin it would fail the recovery. I restored my phone to stock multiple times and it didn't help. Can someone please help?!

Well if u updated the firmware to the newest b4 trying root than that's why. It blocked root until they find a new way.

U can always Odin an older official Rom and do it
