Not for the Samsung Note 3.
You could check Note 3 forums.
If you look at the apk called "Root Without PC" that can be downloaded from the Play Store it indicates that the Note 3 is one of MANY devices that can be rooted by a number of different root exploits. Step One is "Download the zip by searching Root any lollipop device xda on google." The first link Google supplies sent me, and others to this page. After that there are several steps: Install KingRoot, Install Flashify, Flash phillz recovery.img, reboot, flash SU binary.
Yes, this method apparently was written for Android one devices, but seemingly has been expanded to others.
For the Note 3 the #1 method listed is KingRoot. I'm here because I'm trying this method because it's where the developer of the All In One package sent me, and because a year and a half of trying other methods to root my Note 3 have failed. So far this method has failed as well. KingRoot appears to not fully install at about 40% and a red icon appear with lots of Chinese characters. and an icon like an envelope and an error # 15143?????.

On Page 3 of this thread senior member sachin_n says this method is not for the Note 3. I came to xda by following step one in "Root Without PC" and downloaded the zip, extracted it, but can't get KingRoot to finish installing. It seems to quit around 35-40% and displays this error. Is the number significant. I can't read the Chinese.
What does this mean? I've uninstalled KingRoot and reinstalled. AFAIK it never finishes installing.
I found a newer version 5.0.5 of KingRoot but it didn't work. At least it told me in English that it didn't work
It then indicated I could make a request to hurry up development of an exploit for my phone. Honestly, this whole scenario aggravates me to no end. I know I'm 'preaching to the choir' but Samsung and Verizon have no business telling my I can't root my phone and get rid of all their junk.
