I second that! I was hoping since we finally got an update that someone would dig in and find a rooting method. Wish I knew more about finding vulnerabilities or i would be looking on my own.

To answer your question, no you can't. Even if you could, the real problem is that we don't have a way YET to root the AT&T Note Edge. We need to be able to root the device before you can add a different ROM.

Got it. Thanks a lot for your answer

Folks, there is a waiting room thread for this type of conversation in the General forum. This section should only be for after we get root and people can start developing.

Thank you, raynan. I started this thread here to TRY to get some attention on this issue. Is breaking the AT&T lockout THAT difficult? It seems the devs would rather work on other carrier versions of the Edge on AT&T's network.

The devs are currently working on both the Verizon and AT&T models for root as we speak. Since the S4 was released, Samsung has REALLY cracked down on this type of security for carriers. I don't think the S4 even has an unlocked bootloader and the S5 definitely doesn't. I had to wait for most of my contract until the S5 finally got root and I got it a few months after release. As soon as I have root, I plan on working on a debloated version of the stock ROM for our device like I did with the S5. :good:

By the time root is out for ATT the new Edge and Note will be out. I ended up trading my att edge for an unlocked tmobile one on craigslist. Works perfect.

4.4.4 can be temporary rooted, I rooted and I was on 5.0.1, I downgraded and rooted long enough to use some rooted apps, and now I'm enjoying 4.4.4, to me it is much smoother than lollipop, hopefully the devs will find a way to make root permanent, there is hope Att prisoners
