So the Verizon version bootloader is locked. From what I understand, that means that I can't root it. Is there any attempt to unlock it? Or work around the lock? Do any developers actually have one of these? Should I return it and get the international version? My issue is the warranty (I tend to break stuff) and the speed and coverage of Verizon's LTE network . I am missing titanium backup, overclocking, etc.

Thanks for any info.

Unlocking the bootloader and rooting are mutually exclusive. A device can be rooted without being able to unlock the bootloader.

In fact, I've found myself in the odd position once on my Tab 10.1 of replacing the bootloader and not having root access. It was easy to fix but I found that an odd spot to be in.

I can't use Odin to root it. Is there another way available?

me too
I'm sure someone will come out with a root for it eventually but, who knows when. It just came out on Verizon a couple weeks ago. Srsroot says it works but, I didn't have any luck. It just rebooted a couple of times said it was rooting and did nothing. Kinda wonder if it was just a scam to get my info. Don't have anything on it yet though.

Exclamation [BOUNTY] Unlocked Bootloader for P605V
I am going to offer all of our development $30 to whomever can get a working unlocked bootloader for the Verizon 4GLTE P605V Samsung Galaxy 10.1 2014 edition. It's complete nonsense that going as far back as this post (April) that there isn't a solution....

You can root 605v with towel root.. Just rooted mine. Can't install custom recovery. But things like xposed modules works fine. Ad away works.

I think TowelRoot works on 4.4.2, and according to a Tweet and their webpage, SRSRoot works on the SM-P605v 4.3 and 4.4.2. My previously rooted P605v's screen died and I'm getting a replacement sent (I didn't want a newer tablet without the stylus). I hope that whatever OS version is on it is rootable!
