-Copying the unlock file to your phone
After you have downloaded the file from ryanbg's thread (samsung_unlock_n4-2) we need to copy it to the device. You will want to make sure your current directory is the directory that the file you downloaded is in.
Time to push the file to the phone, run the below command:
adb push samsung_unlock_n4-2 /data/local/tmp/
Type the following command:
Elevate your permissions by entering:
Go to the directory we copied our files to
This allows us to actually execute the file. Execute the below commands
chmod 777 samsung_unlock_n4-2
chown root.root samsung_unlock_n4-2
Running the below command will generate a warning and a requirement to enter yes or no. Read the warning carefully before continuing:
[+] CID at boot time is/was: 1501xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [+] device not yet dev CID, now changing to dev CID [+] programming new CID 150100523231384d4100657e54fc1200 [+] success! powering off device, power back on and verify CID [+] then run this binary again to finish the process
Before turning your phone back on, be sure the SD card you are okay with formatting is inserted into the phone.
Once your phone comes back online, launch terminal, ADB shell, obtain root access, and change directories. Now launch the unlock binary again:
[+] CID at boot time is/was: 150100523231384d4100657e54fc1200 [+] dev CID matching, proceding to unlock [+] backing up loaders, this will take a few minutes [+] loaders successfully backed up [+] success! powering off device, hopefully its not bricked!
Power your phone up in download mode (VOL-DOWN + HOME + POWER). Your phone should now show Developer mode. If this is not the case, you either did something wrong or your phone is not a Verizon Note 4
