I've tried using Kingo to root my Verizon Note 3 multiple times, and nothing I've tried has worked. I've used different cables, different computers (Win 7/8), made sure USB debugging was on, unchecked verify apps via USB, etc etc. Anybody have any suggestions? I'd really appreciate it, as this is getting really frustrating.

I'm trying to find a way to root my device as well and from what I've read the latest OTA from Verizon may have thrown quite a stick in the spokes of trying to get this beast rooted. Not sure, still digging for info...but that may be why you are having troubles? If you find a way, let me know eh?

I remember reading something about that too. Maybe the eventual update to KK will bring about new methods. I'll let you know if I find something, and expect the same from you.

Verizon pushed a security policy update out post MJE that I'm investigating. It's pushed silently and disables the option to disable automatic policy updates. It disabled Kingo but vroot still works.

I did recently root my Verizon N3 using Kingo, about 2 weeks ago if that. I did use USB 3.0 so idk if that made a difference or not? It did fail the 1st 2 or 3 times but then went through. I was on MJE before rooting too.

Tried for a week and found the problem. Kingo 1.2 has an error in one of the scripts. You need to download 1.1.8 and it works flawlessly. Had my phone rooted and safestrap recovery up and running in less than 3 min.

Duuuuuude! You seriously just made my day. I downloaded 1.1.8 and it worked like a charm. I have been racking my head for a few days now trying to figure this out.
