    Default [Verizon] Root?

    Now that many people have the Verizon S4 in hand, is there a root method for it like the other carriers? Basically, has Verizon done anything to the phone to stop this root from working?

    I would be very cautious as you are doing and investigate things fully before attempting. Last thing you need is a brick from Verizon's padlock on the phone.

    I'm not familiar with Odin at all, but I have found this.

    I'm good with following directions, but I am a mac user and apparently Odin is windows only? I can get XP up and running on my old imac, but that's it. Will Odin work with XP?

    Yes.

    That entire D-L post is ripped from the XDA guide I linked.

    I was a little scared at first because of the resetting of firmware but this guide was easy to follow and I've rooted many devices by just using a root exploit tool that you run the .bat and your done but this is safe and easy to do.
