When Samsung launched the first device of its Galaxy Note line, many people doubted its success due to its “ridiculously big” display. Well, the Korean OEM proved all negative speculations wrong and established a new kind of device (known as a phablet) in the market. The company has now released the fourth generation of the Galaxy Note with a huge QHD screen and the most advanced version of the S-Pen.
As you know, it’s impossible to make the most of an Android device without root access. Fortunately, the users of the Galaxy Note 4 did not have to wait for a working root method. Well-known root-god, Chainfire, released his CF-Auto-Root package for almost all Galaxy Note 4 variants just about a week ago. However, due to locked bootloaders, the AT&T and Verizon models of the Note 4 have not yet received a root method. We can only hope that someone finds a root exploit soon!
Anyway, if you own the recently released Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition (SM-N910V), you do not need to wait to gain root access on your device. Actually, the developer edition comes with an unlocked bootloader and so, it’s easy to root it using Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root.
If you have opted for the developer edition of the Galaxy Note 4 from Verizon, it simply means that you like to enjoy system tweaks and customization Android is capable of. By rooting your Note 4 and installing a custom recovery afterward, you will be able to play with root apps, modify system files and flash custom ROMs and mods. Just download the CF-Root package cooked for your device and install it using Odin to get root access.
The root procedure described below is considered risky as it does not only void warranty but also put your Note 4 at risk of soft-bricking. In case of a soft-brick, you can restore your device by flashing stock firmware via Odin. If you make your mind to proceed with rooting, do it at your own responsibility.
