    Default GS4 4.3 ROOT help?

    I am trying to root my brother's s4, I did it before with mine, but it was before the 4.3 update. I think it is KNOX that is making it hard. I rooted mine last year no problem just doing the tar/md5 dump bootloader with ODIN 3.7 but all of these new 4.3 methods are confusing and use the ADB and emulators and whatnot. and motochopper never works so forget that simple bs.
    It would probably be easier if I downgrade back to 4.2 but i dont know how to do that.
    SO, anyone who has rooted with 4.3 please help.

    model: SGH-I337

    you cannot downgrade due to bootloader lock, it will prevent you from downgrading
    also if you try to downgrade it will damage the EFS folder
