    Yes re-root again, it's easy.

    Next time, once your rooted, you can use the custom recovery to take a backup of your Stock rom. And you can factory reset inside the custom recovery, while keeping root.
    That is the beauty of root, once you have it you can setup everything in case something goes wrong.

    **download a root checker app, and then download super su or another superuser app from the playstore. It will ask for root access if you have it.

    A custom recovery replaces your factory one ( which you never see because it doesn't have a whole lot of use).

    The two mainstream recoveries are called Clockworkmod a.k.a CWM, and TeamWinRecoveryProject a.k.a. TWRP. I prefer TWRP as it has a nicer interface and is touch driven. There is CWM touch aswell but I stick with TWRP.

    These enable you to flash ROMs, kernels, etc.
    They also enable you to backup your stock rom (or any rom for that matter) to be restored if you don't like a setup you have or if something goes wrong.

    Typically you obtain root by using the desktop utility called Odin, in which you flash a recovery there, and from there flash a superuser or root.zip in the custom recovery.

    To be honest, you should be reading up on a lot of this stuff before even attempting to root/mod your phone. This should lay the ground works for you to do that.

    This is all good info, but one thing to point out...if you do a factory reset, either with the stock recovery or custom recovery, you will lose root unless you're running a ROM with root baked in (which 99% have). In other words, if you're still running stock and do a factory reset, you will lose root.

    The thing about the s4 is that you can root it without installing a custom recovery and I keep asking around about this because I like team win but I don't know how to install it on the s4...

    I think motochopper is the method you are looking for

    motochopper root info

    Once you have root, you can download goomanager from the Play store, and install TWRP from there. It will be device specific and it's under 'install open recovery'.

    Otherwise, you will have to use Odin, flash CWM in odin, and get a TWRP .zip file on your external sd. Reboot to CWM and flash the TWRP .zip in there. Reboot and you will have TWRP.
    I am not sure if there is an odin flashable TWRP, but it will allow you to flash TWRP from there as well just like you would CWM.
