Can anyone help me root my Galaxy S4, ATT, MK2, I337?

I have no idea how to find a method that can be trusted to steer me away from bricking my phone.

Just reading through the first 7 pages of that thread, I may have counted 1 person that was successful with that method, whereas everyone else failed.

Thank you so much!
Now when people brick their phone, what is usually the issue? Is there a chance I may screw this up?

Usually not following the instructions correctly or using a method not for their phone.

anyone with similar specs mind commenting if this worked for them?

I've got the exact same phone as you. Rooted fine the first time on MK2. Broke the screen and had the phone replaced. Upgraded to MK2 and rooted successfully a second time. And I am referring to the method the gentlemen above have directed you to.

Sorry for the late reply. Glad you got it working :D
I'd also recommend using the Xposed framework if you want to customize your phone without having to flash custom ROMs :)

If you deleted system apps, the only way to get them back is to flash stock firmware. If disabled, you should still have option to re-enable.

Factory resetting doesn't affect root. Did you get the messaging app working again?
