First and foremost, all credit for this bounty template goes to @open1your1eyes0, with his permission.
Thank you very much
Since this is xda, and a vast percentage of us here desperately need root for many of our apps and mods that we use on a daily basis (including myself), not to mention custom recoveries so we could flash custom roms and such. It is now very critical that we (at the minimum) get root access on the verizon galaxy note 3 as soon as possible. As a result of this necessity, i would like to personally offer a $25 bounty to the first person able to find or create a method that allows us to fully root and provide the necessary steps for rooting the verizon galaxy note 3 here on xda.
Furthermore, I would like to personally offer a $50 bounty to the first person able to find or create a method that allows us to bypass the bootloader checks and boot into a custom recovery and provide the necessary steps here on xda.
Whoever you are, you will be doing us and many other upcoming owners of this device a great justice, and for that consider this as a token of my appreciation. I also greatly encourage and welcome anyone else willing to chip in to this bounty to post here and i will have the op updated of all users' donations to this request.
Greatly looking forward to anyone interested in becoming a candidate.

Please note before making a post in the thread please refer to this post to see if your post will be acceptable. If it is not part of this list, your post will be reported and you may risk getting an infraction as per forum moderators.
Please note if you do not explicitly state separate prices for root or bootloader bypass/recovery bounties, your contribution of the same price will be add to both lists.
Please note you may not submit a contribution for only ONE bounty. If you post a contribution, one price will be applied to both bounties unless separate prices are explicitly stated.
Please note you do not have to pay for both bounties separately. Whichever bounty gets fulfilled first is the one that you pay for upon collection. This is why your contribution is added to both lists automatically.
Please note you may not make any specific restrictions or requirements that aren't listed in the OP. By making a post with your contribution price you are agreeing to paying out based on all terms listed in OP only and nowhere else.
Please note once you make a post with your contribution you may not withdraw it at any time and are responsible for paying out once the bounty is claimed. The only changes that can be made are another post raising the prices if you choose so. Please make sure you read everything carefully. No exceptions!
Please be advised that if Verizon or Samsung is to release an official method of unlocking the bootloader (extremely unlikely but must be accounted for) prior to any member of XDA's submission, this bounty automatically becomes invalidated.
