How to root and unlock S4 in Canada Bell/Rogers/Telus/Fido I337 4.4.2

i337 Canada on Bell is hard to root or even install TWRP

Installed TWRP from Odin and my computer gave me the bluescreen at the end but it seemed to be successful (after ODIN said reset).
TWRP mode does not seem to enter, instead you get the Android recovery mode with Volume up + Home

1.) Basically go to http://towelroot.com and click on the "weird A looking icon"
Download the .apk and install and run it (make sure you have unknown sources enabled in the Security Settings for Android).
2.) Run TowelRoot
Do the "Normal Mode" and allow it to "disable KNOX". (if KNOX does not disable right away then reboot and try again)
3.)
The last 3 numbers are your main reference which for me is NC1
Download Safestrap 3.72 apk
Install Safestrap
Open Safestrap
*It won't install propery and you'll know if it says "State: Uninstalled"

Install "Selinux mode changer" from Playstore
Open it and set Selinux to "permissive"

*Open Safestrap and install recovery again then it will work
It should now say "State: Installed"
4.) Install the MDJ modem or another older modem known to work with your model (in my case I used MDJ from Fido because it works,  I tried MF3 and it did not work as in the modem wasn't working with my phone).

After this in stall regionlock away and it should work and unlock you.
