Have no fear, newest Root method for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 is here
Who is smarter: Samsung, Verizon, or the folks over at XDA Forums?

As you may recall, shortly after the Samsung Galaxy S4 was released by Verizon, XDA members discovered a way to be able to root the phone and have the bootloader unlocked.

But a couple weeks ago, Verizon started to roll out a new software update (VRUAME7) for the Samsung Galaxy S4, but in doing so they also closed the earlier exploit and re-locked the phone.

Since then, members of XDA Forums have been hard at work to see if the device could be rooted after installing the VRUAME7 software update. We are now happy to report there is now a way to root the Galaxy S4 that is running VRUAME7.

Listed below are the steps for rooting the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 (VRUAME7).
Please keep in mind this is a ROOT ONLY METHOD, as there is currently no way to unlock the bootloader, which in-turn means you can't install a custom kernel or get Google Wallet to work (unless you forget all this, wipe the phone, and install a Custom ROM).
You also need a microSD memory card that is formatted by your PC as exFAT, not FAT32.
