Default [Q] How can I root a Verizon SCH-I535 4.3?

Hi,

I was recently given a stock Verizon SCH-I525 but unfortunately they had upgraded it to android 4.3. I have tried almost every way to root this thing with no luck. How do I go about rooting this version? If I can't, is there a way to flash it back to one of the older versions and then root it?

Thanks

Jim
