I take no credit other than compiling info and making a guide. All credit goes to http://forum.xda-developers.com/member.php?u=4911585 (br3w3r, Chainfire and Princecomsy)
Well, root has been achieved on all of the variants. All the information is spread, therefore I will compile it.
It is confirmed working for the G935T/A/ (All firmwares so far) can anyone verify it works for Verizon?

MAKE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR PHONE, YOU MAY NEED TO FACTORY RESET AFTER FLASHING THE ENGBOOT FILE. ( MAY BE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DISABLED SYSTEM APPS)
1- Put your device in to download mode ( Power off--- Hold Down arrow + Home + Power button)
2-Open the provided ODIN and where it says "AP" select and open the file "Samsung_G935x_QC_Rooted_BOOT.TAR" -- FLASH it--
3- The phone should now reboot
easiest way to put it for flashing su.
1- make sure you have the adb toolkit installed( place it in the root of the "C:/" drive. Mine is "C:/adb"
2- place the superuser folder you downloaded in to c:/adb and rename it "super" to make things easier
3- open the command prompt. Either search for it or press windows key + r and type in "cmd"
4- once cmd is open, navigate to the "super" folder. To do so type cd c:/ , then type cd adb and finally type cd super
5- type in root.bat
You should now be rooted.
To remove the security warning, use a package disabler like titanium backup and disable SecurityLogAgent
For those having lag, heat, and battery drain issues. Try doing this.
I had those issues on PD6.
What I did was, ODIN'd a factory PD8 file and rerooted, then I used KERNEL TOOLKIT and changed to the ONDEMAND Governor, next I increased the CPU(small cores / and large cores) to max FREQUENCY allowed and reduced the min core frequencies to the lowest setting. Be sure to apply settings on boot so they stick.
The phone is very fast now.
I disabled the KNOX packages and tmobile package.
It fixed 95% of my issues, im even running xposed
