I did the root with towelroot and it worked great, was rooted in 1min.

followed the instructions here: How to Root AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S4 and S4 Active on Android 4.4.2! | GalaxyS4Root.com

When I opened SuperSU and disabled knox it hung. So I rebooted, then ran it and it disabled knox right away. Enjoy!
