Yes you can. When you get the phone pop out the sim card try and make sure verizon didn't send you a new sim card. (Mine had one so be careful). Remove the sim if there, turn on the phone and start the root process. After you rooted put your sim in and freeze software update and security update.

AWESOME video man, what a HUGE help that was. I'm all set now, just need to see how xposed gets installed.
I did have a question for anyone, in package disabler to disable updates I'm not sure exactly what to disable. The ones I suspect are Software update (com.sec_android.soagent), System updates (com.samsung.sdm) and system updates (com.Samsung.sdm.sdmviewer) Are these the right ones, and if not can someone put which specific ones need to be disabled?
happy it helped bro, #screwCarriers
