One of the best parts of CF-Auto-Root – able to root most Galaxy S4 firmware out there. Unless Samsung changes the firmware structure, else CF-Auto-Root should be able to root it.

Need to temporary unroot Samsung Galaxy S4 in order to run certain Android applications or games? Yes, there are apps that do not let you run them if your device is rooted. Therefore, you need to temp unroot Galaxy S4 to run them. Luckily, it is not hard to do so. No need to use Voodoo OTA RootKeeper anymore because you can do so in SuperSU and Superuser themselves.
CF-Auto-Root is the best and easiest way to root Samsung Galaxy S4. It should work on every region Galaxy S4 (as long as the model is supported) no matter which firmware or kernel version you are using. Unlike the previous CF-Root which require matched kernel version. But here is the catch, it does not install custom recovery like ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery and install CWM Manager Application. It just to do the essential task – root Galaxy S4 and then install SuperSU binary and SuperSU application. Not a bad idea if you just want to root Galaxy S4. Plus you still can get OTA software update with stock recovery.
Currently, it supports GT-I9505 Qualcomm LTE model only. No luck for GT-I9500 Octa model yet as Developer Chainfire is on vacation now. Therefore, you need to find other way to root Galaxy S4 I9500 for the moment. Update – GT-I9500 model is supported by CF-Auto-Root now.
