We have had temp root for the Verizon and AT&T Note 4 for a few weeks now. The only problem is that the previous root method involved installing some pretty shady apps on our devices. KingRoot will indeed temp root the Note 4 on KitKat, but it also installs a Chinese app called KingUser which has been reported to grab IMEI numbers from phones. It could also be grabbing all sorts of other user data from your phone. There is no way to know exactly what its grabbing.
A new method has arrived which completely uninstall kinguser and any app associated with KingRoot and will install SuperSU to take care of root permissions. This is a script so you will need a Windows PC for this to work. You will also need to be sure USB drivers are installed on your PC. The easiest way to do this is to turn on usb debugging in developer options on your Note 4 and then plug it into the PC. Windows should auto install the necessary drivers. You will also want to be sure to grab the KingRoot app and have that on your internal memory as this method still requires you to root with Kingroot, and then run the script to fully uninstall Kingroot and install SuperSU.
To Root the Note 4.
Download KingRoot (to your phone’s internal memory)
Download SuperSUme.zip (to your PC)
Unzip the SuperSUme.zip and click supersume.bat to run the script then simply follow the on screen prompts.
