Enjoy. Don't forget to thank @beaups too, he discovered the eMMC backdoor and exploited it!

UPDATE: [8/2/16] I have recompiled the binary to fix issues with older ROMs like 4.4. This should fix all the issues with "This is for samsung device only" errors.

THIS WILL NOT WORK ON GALAXY S3/GALAXY S4/GALAXY S6|e/Galaxy S7|e. It will NOT work on AT&T

More info on doing this: here

DON'T UPDATE YOUR BOOTLOADER TO ANYTHING AFTER THE LATEST BUILD AS OF 4/19/16

Disclosure: I do not own a Note 4. The exploit happened to be applicable to the Note 4, and we compiled it for your devices rather than not release it at all. This seems like a reasonable and friendly thing to do for the community. I can't help you root or teach you how to use ADB. It's important you have the ability to do these things or research them a bit before blindly using this. I am very familiar with Samsung however, and time permitting, will do my best to help anyone having issues.

You should not run this if you don't understand it. For those who are capable but need some help go here

ROOT REQUIRED, we aren't responsible for anything you do with this.
You NEED a MicroSD, and it WILL be formatted during this process.

YOU MUST DISABLE REACTIVATION LOCK OR YOU WILL HAVE ISSUES!!!!!!!!!
You can download the eMMC brick bug check app on the Play Store to verify your CID starts with 15. If it does, you are good. If not, it will not work.

UPDATE: Anyone having issues with the "this is for samsung devices only error, please the fix attached to this post

Download

The code below is NOT a script, you must enter the commands manually.
First you must unzip the file.
Code:
adb push unlock_n4 /data/local/tmp/
adb shell
su
cd /data/local/tmp/
chmod 777 unlock_n4
chown root.root unlock_n4
./unlock_n4
Allow device to reboot. After full reboot, power down and pull battery. May need to run it twice if it doesn't work after the battery pull.
