    Has anyone found a root method for the new update to AT&T's S4? Can't seem to find anything anywhere.

    Side question: is it worth it? What does 4.3 bring to the S4?

    Hello there Mike!

    I've moved your thread to a more appropriate forum where others who are rooted on AT&T can better assist you. ;)

    Ok, it would be nice if the "All Things Root" forum was actually visible from Samsung Galaxy S4 - Android Forums ... ya know, the main S4 forum. Can't blame me there.

    Edit: Nvrm, it's at the bottom.. sorry, that's very unconventional.

    I rooted my AT&T S4 (4.3, on MK2 baseband) using Kingo. I was very hesitant to root using a Windows executable, but it is very highly endorsed on XDA Developers, and those folks are the real deal. Just follow the instructions to-the-letter and you'll have no problem. Once you're rooted, I would suggest updating the superSU app, as the one that gets installed during root is several revisions back.

    Thanks for the response. But, after visiting the website, they only list the i9500, which is the verizon version of the phone. They do not list the i337.

    I also rooted my AT&T GS4 with kingo! There is not a custom recovery for the MK2 as of yet, but the rooting works with no problem.
