Here's the complete instruction for rooting Verizon Galaxy Note 3. Thanks to XDA forum members.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Root Verizon Galaxy Note 3
Model Number: SM-N900V
Build Number: N900VVRUBMJE
Android 4.3

Pre-requisites:
Kingo VERSION 1.1.6 (Doesn't work with latest versions. Device not detected or driver issues)
Worked with Windows XP only. Tried Windows 7 Ultimate & Enterprise Edition
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Uninstalled all Samsung USB Drivers and Kies

2. Installed Samsung driver v1.5.33.0

3. Uninstall previous Kingo versions (just to be safe)

4. Installed Kingo VERSION 1.1.6.
i.e. run "KingoAndroidROOTv116.exe". It will connect to some server and download the Kingo v1.1.6
just need to install through thier download manager. It will check other avg bloatware. Uncheck those.

5. Now connect the phone.
DON'T DISCONNECT THE DEVICE UNTIL WHOLE PROCESS IS DONE

6. Start Kingo. It should now recognize the device.

7. It will download dependencies and fetch scripts from server. Will reboot the device couple of times. After that it will be rooted.

8. SuperSU app on the phone will prompt for root access. Grant it. This message will also be shown in Kingo app.

9. Now the Kingo will show the device is rooted.

Is someone screwing with me? I am late to the Note 3 party, picking one up yesterday. Not going to activate unless I can root. I have searched high and low for 1.1.6, have found everything but that version. Is there something specific I should search for, a hint within the forum rules? Thanks! I tried VRoot after getting frustrated and it failed.

I will say his instructions are correct, tried 1.2 multiple times without success, 3 tries with 1.1.6 and was up and running.
