As we are anxiously waiting to get hands on the new Samsung flagship Galaxy S4, we already have the root procedure to run even more powerful apps on upcoming device. News had come from Chainfire himself that there is no root yet available for Galaxy S4 as it has become far more difficult to root due to induction of SU binaries however it has finally been achieved by none else than Chainfire himself.
Its worth noting that this Root is only avaiaible for firmware XXUAMD2 whereas rest of the varients are still un-rootable. Please proceed on your own risk.
