    Does anyone have any idea if towelroot will work after the new update? Could running towelroot brick the phone?

    I don't really mod much but I want to disable my home button from waking up my phone. The most annoying thing about the phone.

    yes it will trip knox because knox came with 4.3. Also you can change the home button from waking up your phone, but you must root.

    It will not trip Knox.... And you must flash back to old ncg kernel through Odin then use towelroot and then update to the ne9 kernel again through Odin... I just did this on Sunday.. There are a couple of videos on YouTube on how to do this... And yes this IS for the verizon s5

    So with the new Verizon update, can we just run the chain fire root and get rooted again?

    towelroot. However, beware, you cannot reset the knox trip. Even if you use triangle away, the knox will always be tripped.

    Currently towelroot will not work. I installed the Verizon update the other day and also lost root access, and towelroot gives an error message. I'm in the same boat as you.

    Towel root won't work after the update today. I should have froze SDM. Is there another way to root yet?

    I found this video which claims to achieve rooting after the new update.

    Since I'm relatively new to rooting, can someone smarter than me confirm that I understand what is being done in this tutorial? If I understand it correctly, the steps outlined are:

    1) flash back to the previous kernel / system status since before the update
    2) root using towelroot
    3) install the current kernel

    Correct?
