How to Root Galaxy S4 Active

Galaxy S4 Active have been successfully rooted by one of the popular hackers we respect in the Apple  community - Geoho. 

 
Geohot is the guy behind the Bootrom exploit used in A4 iDevices like Apple iPhone 4 , 3GS and 3G and has extended its talent to jailbreak or root in android terms the new Samsung Galaxy S4 Active smartphone.
 
For those that don't know, Galaxy S4 Active is the last born of the Galaxy S4 series after Galaxy S4 mini. However,  its more resistant and powerful being able to prevent dust from getting into its internals and can also withstand water immersion of up to 2 feet or even more.

Obviously this guy George Hotz, aka Geohot doesn't like doing the usual generic thing, he prefers to get a more permanent solution in a simple and more accessible manner.
It would interest you to know that guys at XDA developers announced a reward of $450 to anyone capable of rooting this device and Geohot is the guy that would be claiming that reward.
