Default Root for 4.3 here

Hey guys, just want to let you know (if you didn't already) that there is already a root exploit for the new verizon 4.3 update. Way to go guys at xda!
Aaaand naturally my phone is having an issue with the url, but if you go to YouTube and look for Tomsgt123 video, he goes step by step.
When i get home ill post a link for you guys.
Good luck! :-)

Here are all of Tomsgt123's videos:

Unless I'm missing something, I don't see 4.3 for S4 there. I see it for rooting MI1, but that's still Android 4.2.2.

I was under the impression that that is the 4.3 update.... Maybe I'm wrong. I'll have to look again.
Thank you for posting the video beowolf. I didn't have the chance

Looks like you might be right beowolf. I looked at the first few seconds again and he seems to be on 4.2.2 still. Odd. I swear I saw root for 4.3 tho. I'll check xda.
Sorry about that guys

No problem, Nick. In due time, 4.3 and its root for VZW will be here. It's just a matter of when. I think I'll hold off on MI1 which is still 4.2.2 and just wait for 4.3.

Rooting, custom recovery and ROM's are out of the question for anyone on Android 4.3 I'm afraid, unless they want to blow their warranty...

Warning - Knox Security on 4.3 quad core firmwares

Damn. I guess KitKat Android 4.4 won't solve this either for "security reason".
