    No it does not require you to root your Note 4. VZW Note 4 can not be permanently rooted anyway....at least not yet.

    It does require you to turn on developer options then allow USB debugging. As stated before, use caution when messing with the debloater tool. There are functions that can cause serious damage to your Note 4 .
    Do you need a PC for it? Or can you download it directly from the phone?

    I agree, you can go a bit crazy and turn off too much, which can make your phone unusable. Just use common sense. There are lots of contributor who have created a safe list of application you can remove. Many are touchwiz launcher, Knox setup, and a bunch of other apps. I have about 80 internal apps turned off. Not only does this give me better battery life, this allows me to reduce the amount of bloatware, and make the phone run smoother.

    Without a doubt, Verizon has awesome service, I know because I pay a premium for it. Do I wish for an update, heck yes I do. Am I surprise it hasn't arrived, not one bit. We know the game Verizon plays every year with us. I remember finally getting the lollipop update on my note 3 after waiting 5 month after all the other carriers pushed it. Ether way, we won't be receiving it anytime soon. I'm not even holding my breath for 6.0. I'll be glad to get a stable version of 5.1. For the time being, I suggest heading over to XDA forums and download the debloater tool and remover all the bloatware. You'll be glad you did. Till then, the waiting game.
    Will the debloater shut off the annoying warnings you get for turning up your volume too high or the warning you get when turning on gps.

    For anyone wanting to delete apps or services be sure to make a backup of the system or instead of deleting a file rename the extension to .bak. If you don't have issues then delete it or keep it renamed as .bak.

    What does renaming the extension to .bak do?

    The .bak file extension is purely the back-up file extension. When you do a back-up on your computer, that is normally the extension your computer puts on it. It does nothing, but by you changing the file extension to .bak, it will allow you to see it in the future if needed.

    I seriously hope in the next update (5.1.1 or MM) they include the phone feature to end individual calls during a conference call instead of having to hang up completely....like in the Note 3. That was one of the biggest disappointments with the Note 4 and Note 5, how features are removed from the newer devices.

    I have an AT&T Note 4 and never had any issues with any of their Lollipop updates. If fact performance and battery life has gotten better with each update.
    I do hope that Verizon updates the Note 4 to 5.1.1 by the end of the year because it's ridiculous that Verizon customers still don't have it. But I do recommend that you clear your system cache and preform a factory reset on your phone after any OS update. Make sure you also back up your phone before you update.
