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.

KNOX-status: 0x0 and device-status: official.

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.

Did not work on my N9005 (ENB1).

Am i doing this right? After 'making it ra1n' and reboot, do i have to flash SuperSU or does towelroot fix su for me? Root Checker says i am not rooted.

Install app, make it ra1n, it will reboot in 15 seconds, install root checker. And thats it, no need for SuperSu app.

has anyone unpacked the apk and looked to see what its actually doing?
Admitly im an idiot who was in to much of a hurry to get root.
IT worked on my 9005 international.
Download apk , install , reboots in 15 and ... youre rooted without tripping knox.
If apk is clean then i'll probably donate .
Sincerely impressed.

    Can you give me the link. Successfully root 0x0 with official status. Just need the supersu to give enable the permission. Currently supersu on gplay can't istall4the binaries.

    Sent from my SM-N9005 using XDA Premium 4 mobile app
    Download http://download.chainfire.eu/448/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99r5.zip . Don't flash it. Unzip it. Then go to /common folder and install superuser.apk. Run SuperSU from App Drawer, and let binary to update. Now you have it working. And don't worry about disabling KNOX. Just disable it.

    A question: It works only on 4.4.2?

    I have Android 4.3 (N9005XXUDMJ7 with 3.4.0-2019540 kernel) yet, and I don't want to update to KitKat.
    I have the same firm. Yes, it works!

    It is working. I'n now rooted :D :D :D

    Can I flash recovery without tripping the KNOX too??

    you can't. It's only root, not bootloader unlock. Flashing a custom kernel or recovery will trip your knox counter.
