Root de la Vega
By: designgears & Chainfire
Ported To the Verizon S4 By:mad:BeansTown106

First off, Huge Thanks to @DesignGears for the root method & @Chainfire for his SuperSU App
Also Big Thanks To @Open1your1eyes0 for beta testing it for me on the Verizon S4 MI1 Update

Warning: I cannot be held responsible for anything you do to your phone, rooting is optional! But the KNOX counter added in the MI1 Bootloader will not be affected and will still show 0x0.

How to Enter Download Mode
Method 1: in command prompt or terminal enter: adb reboot download
Method 2: Pull the battery out, unplug the usb cable, reinsert the battery. Hold Volume Down + Home + Power. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Rooting Instructions
Remove the external sdcard (if you have one)
Boot into bootloader mode (see methods above)
Flash VRUDMI1_Root_de_la_vega_jfltevzw.tar.md5 with Odin v3.07 (put in PDA slot, don't change any other settings, click start)
Let your device fully boot after flashing has completed
Copy the contents of Rootfiles.zip to the root of the internal storage
  • /My Computer/SCH-I545/Phone/
  • root_de_la_vega.sh
  • root_files (folder)
Reboot (very important!)
After fully booting delete the files from the internal storage that were added previously
  • /My Computer/[Phone Name]/Phone/
  • root_de_la_vega.sh
  • root_files (folder)
Reboot (extremely important!)
Reinsert the external sdcard (if you have one)

That's all! Enjoy Root!

I'm stuck. I flashed the .tar in odin just fine, but now my computer isn't recognizing the phone. I'm running windows 8.1 and the usb plug in noise plays when I plug it in, but I can't find the device. I tried and tried to reinstall the drivers. I used kies, the .exe file from samsung, disabled driver signature enforcement, everything I could think of. I can't flash back to stock software, I can't find the stock MI1 files (not sure if they exist). I need help getting the root files and the sh files onto my phone so I can get a custom recovery and flash a stock google rom. Thank you for your help!

@wdswds did you by any chance took out the SD card out? You should be able to see your phone on your computer after you click on the MTP and when your SD card is out.
