I actually did both.
I flashed "xposed-v86.1-sdk23-arm64-custom-build-by-wanam-20160904.zip"
Then installed the APK.

Install Package Disabler Pro. Disable the system update entry.
(You will have to do it again after rooting)

Thanks for the info! I had to redo the root on my phone anyways because it was jusst crashing alot at work(on break) after I installed xposed... Not sure if I messed it up somehow, and I probably should have waited until after work to do so.... But Ive redone the process and if it happens again, I just can reinstall xposed and the apk and it would go away?

Update- Nope, it still showed up... I flashed the xposed zip again afterwards and it just refuses to optimize 1 app, which i think its the xposed apk itself...
Update 2- I uninstalled it and after rebooting after it redoing the optimization it didnt do it.. Xposed is the issue and Id rather not have my phone heat up from a bright green screen displaying for 15 seconds...

DO NOT! update to the new firmware. it blocks all parts of this root method and will soft brick your phone

for those who did not update and are having issues with how to get this installed, @TechBSwift was Gracious enuff to do a video tutorial on the process.

have added a link to it in post #3

good luck guys and enjoy root, and for those that have taken the update or had it forced onto your phone. sorry. i would suggest you take it back for another exchange if they'll let you. i had the update forced on mine and can't exchange it again so i am stuck with no root option atm but we are looking for ways to get around samsungs newest root killer

What's a good excuse to say that I'm returning it?

i don't know. lol
tell em you can't stand that ugly green battery icon and you want it gone. you didn't accept the firmware update, it was forced. you don't like it. make something up.
bad part is you may have to wait for new stock to come in. not like you don't have some time to think something up.
or you could odin the original firmware and let it soft brick your phone. then take it in and tell em the new update did that. theres lots of things you can do to get a replacement. they may want a restocking fee though. am sure if you throw a big enuff fit they'll wave it though.

you can maye intentionally soft brick your device and tell them it just messed up after the update..

id imagine since it was a new exchangetheres a doa process within a certain time period

we are trying different things atm to get root onto the new firmware. nothing successful yet though. samsung did a pretty solid job of screwing us with the update. we just have to find that hole they missed. and it's gonna take time. so like i said, if you want root avoid that update. if your on new firmware and really want root, try and take it in for an exchange and make up an excuse for why you want it replaced. thats the most i can tell you all.

my store are inexperienced.. last time i took it in i just disabled a bunch of apps and told them after the update my apps dissappeared n they replaced it haha

Try this version. This is the one I did and it worked with no lag or fits ......

I noticed the T-Mobile version of the root instructions comes with both mods and some other debloating options. Are any of those working on this phone? My understanding is these are somewhat universal devices, but things get complicated with Verizon.

    Verizon

    I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device by doing this! If you break it, brick it or just plain blow it up. it is your phone and your responsibility for what happens to it.

    Here it is. Full Verizon With Root - since this is Verizon based all bands should work as well

    This is Based on the Verizon PH1 Firmware and is Completely Stock and Unmodified

    To Avoid Repeat Questons. READ! READ IT AGAIN! and then READ it once more! if you do not Understand any part of this. Do Not Continue!!!

    This Guide assumes you have some basic knowledge and can at least copy and paste for the most part! It is Intended for advanced users!!!!!!!!
    This Guide also Assumes you have an sdcard inserted in your phone(however some of you may not and this will not work.)
    This Does NOT Trip Knox.

    Read this entire post before doing anything to avoid issues and FOLLOW Directions - if you don't things will not work right.

    Note! if at anytime during the following steps you see the samsung boot animation before step 11. start over cause you screwed up!

    Step 1. Initial PreSetup Requirements and Downloads

    Make Sure your ExtSDCard(the one you put in your sim tray) is formated exfat(backup your card before you do this in windows or linux(whichever you use))
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24651430732237653 bbx.rar
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24723785898787028 Verizon_System.rar
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24713784966775399 Verizon Bootloader
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24713784966775400 Verizon Modem

    Step 2. extract system.rar and bbx.rar and then copy system.img and bbx to your extsdcard(the sdcard you inserted into your phone)

    Step 3. odin sprint userdebug firmware available here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/sprint-note-7/how-to/root-super-leaky-bros-sprint-galaxy-t3447202

    Step 4. Directly after odin is done with the sprint file you will immidiatly be presented with an update screen
    Step 4a when this process of erasing your phone is finished it will reboot(this is the point you want to do the next step)
    Step 4b. press and hold power, home and vol up to enter recovery
    Step 4c If you see the samsung boot animation. you did NOT do this right and i would suggest you start over

    Step 5. open a command prompt in your adb folder and do the following steps 1 at a time(these are case sensative)
    Step 5a. adb shell
    Step 5b. su
    Step 5c. setenforce 0
    Step 5d. export PATH=$PATH:/sbin
    Step 5e. mount -o remount,rw /
    Step 5f. on your phone, go to apply update from sdcard(this will mount your extsdcard as /sdcard and you should see the system.img file and the bbx file) do not select anything, go back to adb and continue(it is not a big deal if those files don't show. we just needed the extsdcard mounted as sdcard - the files exist, just continue to the next step)
    Step 5g. cp /sdcard/bbx /sbin/bbx
    Step 5h. chmod 777 /sbin/bbx
    Step 5i. cd /sbin
    Step 5j. ./bbx --install /sbin
    Step 5k. umount -l /system
    Step 5l. /sbin/dd if=/sdcard/Verizon_System.img of=/dev/block/platform/soc/624000.ufshc/by-name/system
    Note. you will see a blinking cursor. just be patient

    Step 7. when it is done you will see something similar to this
    11161600+0 records in
    11161600+0 records out
    5714739200 bytes (5.3GB) copied, 268.668086 seconds, 20.3MB/s

    Step 8. if all went well you should be at your prompt and not in adb anymore

    Step 9. from your command prompt simply type
    Step 9a. adb reboot bootloader

    Step 10. open odin and click the bl button and select this file - BL_N930VVRS1APH1_CL8720001_QB10528330_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    Step 10b. now click the cp button and select this file - CP_N930VVRS1APH1_CL8720001_QB10528330_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    Step 10c. now click start. it will reboot when done let it fully boot this time.

    Step 11. once booted and you have setup your phone, first we need to enable usb debugging
    Step 11a. to do this go to settings>about device or device information and tap the build number repeatedly until it says dev options enabled, now backout of about and go into dev options and enable usb debugging
    Step 11b. Now we need to add the root files or supersu as most of you know it

    Note! pertaining to Step 12. these instructions were taken Explicitly from @freeza thread which is listed in step 3
    Step 12. Now we need to add supersu and the needed files for it to work
    Step 12a. download this file - https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24651430732236679
    Step 12b. Extract the sun7 file to your adb folder making sure the files are in a folder called sun7(mine looks like this - c:/adb/sun7 and contains 4 files)
    Step 12c. Open a command prompt where your ADB executable and sun7 folder are.
    Step 12d. adb shell
    Step 12e. su - Note! if your adb prompot changes from a $ to #(you are good and have root access)
    Step 12f. type exit twice to get back to the command prompt. - Your Phone should be fully booted when you do this
    Step 12g. adb push sun7 /data/local/tmp/su
    Step 12h. adb shell chmod 0777 /data/local/tmp/su/*
    Step 12i. adb shell
    Step 12j. cd data/local/tmp/su
    Step 12k. su
    Step 12l. ./root.sh - Note. this command begins with a . do not leave it out
    Step 12m. Your Phone will now reboot

    Step 13. when booted back up go to playstore and install busybox on rails or a similar app and install busybox to /system/xbin(if your given an option of where to install it)

    Step 14. Thats Pretty Much it. most of all enjoy it

    Additional Notes!

    If for any reason you do a factory reset. you will break root and need to redo this method to get it back
    If you use shealth do not update it or allow playstore or galaxy appstore to auto update it or it will break it

    Enjoy and FOLLOW Directions - if you don't things will not work right.

    thank you to the following:

    @freeza - for posting the original userdebug file
    @ted77usa - for testing
    @bajasur - for the initial idea which ultimately led to this
    @Surge1223 - for the busybox installer and the adb help and android commands that make this work
    @galaxyuser88 - for testing this and pointing out some flaws
    @Hashcode - for inspiration

    and anyone i missed

    this was a complete collaboration and is only available because of those mentioned so be sure to give them thanks

    This Method Completely replaces the Sprint files with verizons. with exception to the kernel, recovery and the su binary. so everything once complete is now verizon and not sprint with verizon touchs thrown in to make it work.

    as we don't have an unlocked bootloader, there is no twrp recovery. but flashfire takes it place. so any changes you want to make are basically done the same way as they would be for twrp except they are now flashed through flashfire.

    to get rid of the security notice you will get(because the system is now rooted) simply install root explorer(or any root browser) and go to /system/app and delete securitylogagent or go into the folder and rename it adding .bkp to the end of the file name and reboot.

    If you don't see the Verizon_System.img and bbx files after doing the apply update from sdcard on your phone. try this as it has worked for some on t-mobile
    create 3 folders on your sdcard
    create "files" inside of that, create one called "image" and then inside of that crate one called "file" so on your sdcard you would have /files/image/file and place the 2 files into it, you have to do this with the phone in recovery so just pop out your sim tray. plug the sdcard into your pc and create the folders and move the files into it, then force your phone into recovery(basically reboot your phone and instantly go into recovery) and start step 5 again. hopefully the files now appear and you can continue
    now when you get to step 5g step 5l, you will need to modify them to reflect the new path to the files so it would now look like this
    step 5g. cp /sdcard/files/image/file/bbx /sbin/bbx
    step 5l. /sbin/dd if=/sdcard/files/image/file/Verizon_System.img of=/dev/block/platform/soc/624000.ufshc/by-name/system
    and continue on with the guide

    Here's a video Tutorial done by @TechBSwift to help if you have any questions on how this works.

    The 2 system update packages are the essentials. Xposed is as easy as flashing the right file in flashfire, links in OP.

    Everything else works normally per previous questions. No Samsung pay, no updating S-Health.

    OCD Tip: If you revert to stock S-Health, and don't want to be nagged by Play Store updates, you could use a tool like Titanium Backup Pro, select the app and "Detach from Market".

    This allows your device to keep running the older version without the Play Store knowing it's installed. Also prevents accidental updates.

    I just got my replacement note 7 today. Im gonna read,read and then re-read the steps to complete root on my replacement/non-fire prone note 7.

    Verizon Cloud is an app in Play Store. I have always backed up and restored between rooted and non-rooted devices in the past with no issues. Unless big red has changed something in the last few days it should with just fine.

    I'm a stickler for following instructions. more so when the first step is to read,read, then read again. I just want to make sure I have this right and dont assume prematurely. Step 2 says to extract system.rar and bbx.rar then copy system.img to my SD card. I dont see a system.rar in the OP, however I did download Verizon_System.rar which has Verizon_System.img inside it. I Presume this is the same file with the Verion_ part added?

    ~SG

    Bro I just posted a YouTube video which explains everything step by step, that should answer all your questions.

    For the rest, I've rooted and installed the T-Mobile modifications zip using flash fire, I'm happy to say almost everything works and my phone is awesome now!!!
