    A possible new root method has been discovered by known Verizon Samsung expert and root extraordinaire "Open1Your1Eyes0" for the latest 4.3 MJ7 build of the Galaxy S4! After reading several pages of comments on the thread post linked below it looks like most of those who have tried the KingoApp have acheived root! There was some discussion about whether or not this app is a malicious app that installs malware on your PC. The general concensus is that it is not, however you should use this at your own risk. For more information head to the link below.

    Via XDA

    Keeps failing

    When I attempt to root via this method, it stops on waiting for device, which later fails. I have forced stoped the knox security.

    That thread has been closed on the XDA site. Any other updates on this root access?

    Given Samsung Knox will NOT allow this.... and the only way to defeat Samsung Knox is AFTER the phone has been rooted, would love to hear exactly how you achieved this. I just used this method, repeatedly for a dozen times, with NO success... while receiving the KNOX denial screen...
    for the Galaxy S4 MJ7

    Check your PM's. Also, you will want to use the root_de_la_vega tool to remove the Chinese superuser app, and add SuperSU. Also make sure you freeze Knox and the SuperUser app from China before running the other.
