Default [Q] sooo, let me get this straight about the verizon S4...

do i run cyanogen mod off of the sd card (like a live cd) or format/wipe/install it to the internal storage. somebody said i can't install it but just root it. is rooting running off of the sd card only?

thanks in advance...

There are multiple builds of the software running on the I545.
Only the original build, MDK, can run Cyanogen since the CM ports use a custom kernel and we can't flash a custom kernel on any release past MDK since the bootloader is locked.

You can root it and use Safestrap to install a small set of custom ROMs if you're on some build past MDK.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
