    How soon, would you say, after the release of N4 will a one-click root be available?

    CF Auto Root has been achieved for many GSM variants of the Note 4:

    CF-Auto-Root Gains Note 4 and S5 Prime Support!

    However, READ THE FINE PRINT. This root method WILL trip Knox. And it doesn't work on the Verizon variant, due to the locked bootloader. Now that Hashcode is no longer developing or supporting Safestrap, it might be awhile before we get root and custom ROMs :(

    I have high hopes that someone out there will step up to the plate, take the Safestrap torch over from Hashcode, and let us flash ROMs like the unbelievable Hyperdrive.

    well, according to his website, he said he'll probably still be releasing safestrap updates for a little while, so maybe there's still hope that he'll pass it along to someone else :smokingsomb:

    his code is open, he said he has plans to write up a guide on how to make it a bit easier. if he gets it up then porting it will be easier.

    the downside is att/vzw still need root before its even useable for yall :p

    Does that mean T-mobile user have no lock bootloader means they can start flashing a cook rom as soon as one is available?
