How to: Root the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3

How to: Root the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Earlier this month we informed you that there was a way to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but method was limited to only some models.

Now with the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3, there comes a way to allow you to easily root the device. Though there isn't way yet to install a custom recovery, such as TWRP or CWM yet, though we're sure this is in the works.

You'll first need to install the newest Samsung Drivers ( for your PC, which you can get from here.

Once the drivers are installed, reboot your PC.

The following instructions for rooting the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are provided by "designgears" from XDA Forums.
You need to follow the instructions exactly, and remember, use at your own risk!
This process will also wipe your phone, so any apps and settings will have to be reinstalled after the process is finished.

If you want to return your phone back to stock (removing root) you can follow the directions here.

I got mine the day it came out. So far I like it and now may be rooting it this way tomorrow. With out any customs ROMs out yet I'm not sure if I want to spend the time though.
