So is the stock file for MDL a genuine stock file and is it the latest?  I'm a little confused with the back and forth.  I used the snapdragon root method basically the day it came out, was wondering about updating to the latest now. 

 

tl:dr - What is the latest update and can I root it afterwards?

 

Thanks!

Yes. Should be genuine stock. It is the latest and as far as rooting... I honestly don't know that answer as I haven't kept up on reading

MDLs kernel seems to have patched the motochopper root method.

Idk if there is a another way yet.

Only other way is to flash custom recovery then flash droidz kernel and flash su. Then freeze/delete the KNOXAgent.apk to get rid of the annoying popup :)

I saw on xda that it looks like the guy that makes supersu figured out how to make it work on the s4 with the new MDL update for the other s4s but ours wasn't listed idk if it will work on ours or not. I would test the updated supersu but I cant get the MDL update. I've went back to the official md9 and tried to update it but it says I'm running the newest update even though I was on md9.

+1. For me it did not reset my data but took off twrp and kernel. Always can flash back on and root.

I don't think it wipes data because there is no replacement data.img. Just a thought though

I have never found an MDB odin file.  The earliest any of our sources see when they try and get me a file is MD9 so it seems USCC didn't even receive MDB.  Weird but that's all I know.

What about MDM...i noticed a few kernels were based off of that source now. Curious if anyone has seen this in the wild yet.
