I take no credit for the following:

I successfully root with towelroot @ http://towelroot.com/.
The site looked sketch but I did some research and the guy is from XDA and designed it for the s5's. But I took the chance and it works!!! Screen shoot attached.

(I know the screen shot doesn't provide 100% proof, but its the best I can do at the moment)

Good luck

This root Method doenst seem to work if your kernely is < June 2 2014. Look in the kernel build in your device settings and if its before June, then I dont think the root method will work for you.

it was built for at&t and verizon device.
but the website did said MIGHT work on other device which is < 3 jun 2014.
and it is new release, so I guess nobody try yet on N9005.

Just rooted my SM-N9005 (kernel version: 3.4.0-1168347) successfully using TowelRoot.

When it comes to rooting, does the ROM capacity of the phone matter?

Most Note3 are 32GB, unfortunately, mine is the dreaded 16GB Hong Kong version, so I wanna know whether it would work or will the root exploit need to be rewritten to be compatible with the 16GB version.
