While excitement for the Galaxy Note 4 may be waning there are still a handful of developers working in the shadows to provide the N4 community with root. The bounties for root have well surpassed $10k but have still unfortunately not been able to attract the attention of very many developers. Still there are three developers who refuse to give up. For now the team consist of GatesJunior, Surge1223, zxz0O0.
GatesJunior posted an exciting update to the “Root R&D” thread over at XDA. He is stating that they have successfully escalated system privileges. They are now able to write to any area as long as system uid has access. They have now moved on to coming up with a root exploit to leverage the current system level access. This is possibly closer than ever. We may well see root on the Note 4 soon. It may have been more than 6 months since the release of the phone, but late is better than never.
Have you all moved on past root after owning a device that hasn’t had it since release, or are you just as excited as I am?!
