    Fails on the Verizon version and that's a qualcomm processor as far as I know so it should work.

    Not sure... this didn't seem to work on my Verizon S4 - I got the SU icon but no SU access.

    However, this guide worked splendidly:
    [GUIDE] Root for Verizon Galaxy S4 ***Updated 5/23 - 9:30 AM*** - xda-developers

    I think the Verizon version requires a temporary firmware change to the prerelease version which doesn't block SU access.

    Instead of success! it says failure. I have the drivers installed, although will it make a difference if I have Verizon and I downloaded the at&t ones?

    If you are referring to the Samsung drivers for the S4, AT&T and Verizon use the same set. Right now that's version 1.5.14.0.

    Did you try this procedure for Verizon root?
    [GUIDE] Root for Verizon Galaxy S4 ***Updated 5/23 - 4:30 PM*** - xda-developers

    That worked perfectly for me.

    For some reason this is not working on T- Mobile version for me. Any thoughts? SU is installing but there is no root.

    Hi folks. I am about to buy a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4. This will be my first Android phone in a very long time (had a miserable experience a long time ago with a Droid Incredible 2). If I root the phone and 'freeze' some of the apps I don't want, does that buy back the memory those apps take up. My goal is to free up memory for apps since they can't be installed on the micro SD card. Do they have to be uninstalled to free up the memory or will freezing do it?

    Thanks folks ............ after today I expect I'll be in these forums quite a lot. I'm a total tweeker with my phones :-)

    Is there anyway to install vanilla good android through root? They are obviously coming out with the phone throgh t-mobile/att with vanilla android but I would like to have it with Verizon. It seems like freezing/unfreezing (for updates) is the best way to get the most vanilla android experience?

    When you guys say 'freeze' on Uninstall Manager, you mean moving them
    to the recycle bin, right?

    Use Titanium Backup to freeze the applications so you don't delete them. You need them for upgrades.

    Could you please PM me unroot instructions also. My Rogers GS4 says it's been modified and won't allow me to check for updates anymore.
