    Just picked up an S4 Mini on Verizon

    It's running 4.2.2 w/MK5 Baseband and KNOX.

    What is the latest version of Android I can upgrade to that can still be rooted?

    Is there a root for Kitkat on this phone?

    Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help...

    I have take a look around and can't find anything definitive for rooting this specific model S4 Mini. Since rooting Galaxy deices often times is device specific, I don't want to link you to another variant that won't work for your S4 Mini.

    I would like to know as well. Had a slight issue installing the kit Kat firmware but figured it out quick enough. I'd rather not change back, wait a few days or so then have to update and root again... agh. Patience..... :-(

    4.2 can be rooted I believe because that's jelly bean and it was rootable on my sch-i435.
