    I bought an S4 a couple days ago, updated to 4.3 firmware OTA, now I'm wanting to root but can't seem to find a way to do so. Tried Motochopper/LOKI and upon verifying root access via rootchecker, said I didn't have proper root access. Along with the Superuser "binary update" stuff that alot of people have been having. Anybody having the same issue or have a workaround? I'm trying to flash 4.4 kitkat google play edition but obviously need a successful root/recovery.

    +1 on HwDzBeAzT's suggestion. It's really the only game in town (currently), and quite easy. I would suggest updating superSU once rooted, as the one that gets installed during the root process is several revisions back. The new version will let you disable Knox too!

    There were some concerns raised about Kingo at one time for lack of disclosure and having your phone contact servers in China
    See posts 21 October and 29 October here:
    [ROOT] Kingo Android Root Method - Page 10 - xda-developers
    xda-developers - View Single Post - Kingo Android ROOT - True one-click root - Xperia Z
    As far as I can tell the concenrs were addressed

    There is another method which also works for 4.3 that some seem to consider safer:
    Safe (NOT vroot or kingo) root method for MK2 - xda-developers

    I haven't used either but if I do root I'd try the second one.
