Thumbs up Rooted new S4 (Verizon) purchased yesterday

I'm posting here because as a newbie, I'm not allowed to post in any dev forums, but . . .

I received the Verizon Galaxy S4 (SCHI545) yesterday, powered it on, activated it. It promply downloaded the I545VRUEMK2 update & asked me to install it, which I let it.

After reading the entire thread, I followed K1mu's post #1 instructions in the thread [ROOT] Saferoot: Root for VRUEMJ7, MK2, and Android 4.3

I took my time, because I wanted to make sure my Samsung USB drivers would communicate properly before taking the plunge. I had an older version of the drivers installed for my Droid Charge already (which were reported to work) but I wanted to test the ADB communications first.

After confirming that, i ran the batch file K1mu provided, & everything worked as expected. I rooted the Original Motorola Droid, the Samsung Droid Charge, & now this. I must say this was the easiest root I have performed.

Thanks to K1mu and all the helpful posters in that thread.

Would be nice if you actually post in a thread for the root.. this will probably get lost.

Just sayin...

Scratch all I wrote below. I see what you mean. There are already several ongoing threads right here! I should have added to one of the existing . . .

I tried to post in the developers section where the conversation is ongoing. I have not enough posts, and the mods will not allow me to post there. If you mean I should have posted to a particular rooting thread in the "General Forum" . . . point taken.

Thanks
