I own a SM-N900V on NC4 and I've read that a root method for NC4 does not exist yet. Is there a place where progress is given/notified on when this will be completed?

Someone will make a new thread when anything is discovered. Youll prolly be waiting a long time

Please allow me to rephrase the question....is root for nc4 for us who took the ota update without ever being rooted ever going to be available given the fact that most users already have a rooted device before being on nc4? Is *anyone* even working on it at all? or should we just give up all hope and not even bother given the fact that it is only a handful of us w/o root on nc4 that for whatever reason we took the plunge knowing the consequences of possibly not having root for a while if ever at all?

it may be never is the rumor but you never know.

for example the bounty for root for the S5 is currently at around $15,000 and no takers so that speaks to the depth of the situation.

I would not get your hopes up anytime soon, this is why I stayed on NC2 and disabled OTA's after reading the psa by hashcode.

Thanks for this thread! I'm also hoping for a root for NC4 some day... I just ordered a Note 3 (should come in the mail today), but I think it'll have NC4 on it. I didn't research enough, first, to be sure I was getting a phone that could be rooted.

bounty has reached almost $18,000 just for root so you can be assured its getting worked on but also how hard it must be for such a bounty to exist.

here is the bounty thread if you want to add to the money pile

That appears to be a bounty for the S5 root... Is there an official bounty for the Note 3 NC4 root?

Are are the two very closely related? (as in, if there was a root method for the S5, then could we expect a root method for the Note 3 to quickly follow? If so, then maybe a bounty for the Note 3 wouldn't be necessary)

Is there any way to switch to NC2? Or do we have to stay on NC4?

99% if it works on S5 then that discover exploit would work on N3

If you're on NC4 then for now you have nowhere else to go - you are locked in tight.
