    Thanks and done - AWESOME tip BTW!

    I was so hoping that someone would find the exploits to make this work and it looks like we're halfway there! All we need now is to bootstrap the locked bootloader and defeat the Knox reset issue :D

    No. AT&T and Verizon have locked bootloaders (naturally!). We need a Toolkit in a hurry that will bootstrap the device and allow rooting without tripping Knox.

    Considering that the phones haven't even been released yet, I have a good feeling that it won't take long :)

    There's a pre-rooted firmware also. 3 methods to root Galaxy Note 3 already :D:D.
    Though i'm pissed that it is the Qualcomm version always the one to get things first....
