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.
