No Root phone

Wiped cache: No Joy
Verizon said to go to BestBuy Samsung Experience have them reflash: No Joy
Odin 3 back to VRUFNC5 No Wipe: OS crashed
Odin 3 back to VRUFNC5 - Wipe: All good
Install VRUFNC6 over the air: All good (except for the normal update pains)

I did not try a factory reset since some reported that did not work. The reboots are gone and the normal update problems are being dealt with. I used Helium (carbon) backup /restore which worked well except setting up my POP3 accounts. All back to working.
