    No. For those who are currently rooted and wish to remain so, I would pass up this upgrade, as it will cause you to lose the ability to root your phone.

    I just finished with the update, moving all my apps to the external micro SD card which is nice, in regards to root, this phone is hardly in the need of root, as it flies, as an owner of the S3 which is rooted and unlocked, that phone was in need of root to make it spiffy. I might root the S4 in the future, when the devs have a handle on things.

    I'm going to wait since I have apps and utility stuff that needs root for complete functionality.

    Those who are going thus route... Be prepared for a long process.

    Took a good 30 minutes just for the desktop installer to download and install it's own update.

    Not the phones update mind you, the Verizon desktop software.

    Once that finished I got to the actual phone software update and was informed that it would take another 30 - 90 minutes to install and not to disconnect my phone.

    I was out of time at that point so I never got the update.

    The download doesn't have to be done in a single session. In my case, the software update download to the PC occurred automatic. You can connect the phone to the PC at a later date or time and initiate the update-the-phone step.

    I know, it was just a process that was way longer than it should have been.

    try downloading this software using MiFi.... going on 29 minutes and not even 30%. Only downfall to living in the middle of nowhere, though I never expected to need to use my computer for a phone update.
