Default Help unlocking Buddy's note

If I root it and use chainfires cf auto root or w.e thru Odin to install a recovery will he be good to go...will it unlock the bootloader or will I send it into a security error by flashing clockwork

Correct, our VZW specific Note 3 has a locked bootloader so we can't modify it aside from the stock .tar file via Odin
You want to use this method to apply the MJE update before doing anything else
Then root via Kingo, have to google it
Then install Safestrap, open it, select install recovery
Profit

Lol good luck let us know if you run into issues it's not too rough

If he wants the full root experience, at this time his best option might be to return the phone for something else if he is within his 14-day period.

I'm not sure what else though ... The N3 is a great device. My understanding is that the camera on the HTC One isn't great, and I'm not sure what the root situation on the LG device is, nor how much developer love it will get over time.

Maybe he should leave Big Red for a different carrier... making sure they know exactly why on the way out the door.

Running Beans Build 6 with a custom launcher with Wanam Xposed Framework mods and it's not bad at all. I'm sure he'd be happy with that.
