Background:
So after we gained root on the Note 4 everyone was excited, except that we all didn't like the KingRoot applications running
on our device and were not sure what it all was collecting. Also, many of our favorite programs we know work with SuperSU and
some even look for it. So we decided as a team to take on the challenge and come out with this script that will completely remove all of the KingRoot applications and put SuperSU on our device.

Requirements:

• KingRoot application on your device (There are known issues with certain versions of Kingroot, below is the version I use and know works well..)

Don't even try to run this if you have not just done a clean reboot and then rooted with KingRoot. Yes, you must do
this, otherwise you risk a reboot in the middle of the process and will have to do it anyway..

What does it do?:
• Removes KingRoot / Kingo Root applications
• Disables Knox
• Installs SuperSU
• It does NOT give you permanent root on the Note 4 (Update: The Pro version includes root protection, you will be surprised at how long you can retain root now.


What audience of device does it support?:

• AT&T Note 4
• Verizon Note 4
• Many, many other devices

It also will work on pretty much any other device that has KingRoot installed and you are looking at getting over to SuperSU..

This will work on any Android OS as long as you are rooted with KingRoot first.

Process if your device reboots / you lose root:

Uninstall Super-Sume Pro
Reboot
Root with KingRoot 5.x or newer
Install and run Super-Sume Pro

Here is a nice video that ours truly, RootJunky put together:

some even look for it. So we decided as a team to take on the challenge and come out with this script that will completely remove
all of the KingRoot applications and put SuperSU on our device.

Requirements:

The program requires that your manufacturer USB drivers are installed for your specific device as well as the following:
• Windows Operating System
• USB Debugging turned on for your device
• KingRoot application on your device

The process in the beginning will ask you to hard reboot your device and re-root the device with KingRoot. Yes, you must do
this, otherwise you risk a reboot in the middle of the process and will have to do it anyway..

We are also currently finishing up an on-device script for you as well as possibly an apk you could install to do the same thing. We are also
fine with anyone who wants to take this on and use our script as a guide. Just be fair and give us credit in the post..

What does it do?:
• Removes KingRoot applications
• Disables Knox
• Installs SuperSU
• Soft Reboot at the end

What audience of device does it support?:

• AT&T Note 4
• Verizon Note 4

All of the above require you to be running KitKat on the device as well. There currently is no root method available for the Lollipop release.

Here is a nice video that ours truly, RootJunky put together:

custom stock rom

I know this won't allow custom roms but is it possible to have a modified stock rom? Awesome work will try this later today

As far as root is concerned is this method permanent, I know kingroot isn't and this just seems to replace kingroot jazz with supersu, which is awesome by the way, but I saw no mention of permanent root or temp root.

So this is not working for me.

I have used odin to succesfully downgrade from lollipop to 4.4.4 via the Stock_Restore_NJ5.zip file. Everything upon reboot of that shows the phone is running fine.

I have enable USB Debugging. I have no versions of SuperSU installed previously. I have the usb drivers installed and running your script seems to work fine. Kingroot apps are cleaned out during the script and SuperSU is installed. I run it and update the binary but after a 10+ second wait I get an installation failed.

I have factory reset the phone and tried it all once again but still the same outcome. I have verified that NJ5 is my current build.

Any ideas?

Edit: Root is on ATT variant. took a number of tries doing the whole process to get it to work

Whenever I downgrade I use the full firmware zip. Never had great success with the other variants.

bug report! super user ask me to update su files again, but it fails this time so I can't give privilege to my app anymore, any advice?
Which apps did you grant su to?

I got it to work, but when I went into SuperSU after the reboot, it said it had to update su again. In the process of updating, the phone rebooted and I'm currently doing it all over again. :(

just xpose and greenify. looks like we should be hurry when we root it before the su vanish
When you install exposed. It has you reboot. You will lose root. Re apply root and you should be able to function inside of xposed but remember any time you make a change that requires a reboot you will have to re root as well

    Update..

    Well, we are now able to get permissive behavior on system for root instead of enforced. Yes, a reboot will wipe it out, but we are progressing..
    31
    Absolutely not. Go check the Root Progress thread and see why.

    Edit: Since I was in a hurry to type that up I also forgot to say it doesn't matter whether you're using Kingroot or SuperSuMe, you will lose root. There's no sense in wasting time and effort to create an app to do what you're talking about. I would just deal with what you've got now and wait till we get permanent root solved.



    This post is not towards @heXacode, this post got me a little riled up: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=61181549&postcount=2459
    @heXacode is a valuable member of our community, so again, this is NOT directed at him directly..

    So, actually, I do have a script that will work on the device and allow you to remove Kingroot and all of its counter parts as well as install SuperSU for you. I have just not released it yet. I have tested it many times and have not found any issues with it thus far. I have been focusing on perm root.. I suppose if there is enough demand for it, I could release it.. I am definitely not about the bounty reward as the ultimate goal, I am about the community and helping others, but I will state this for the record. And BTW, there are three others on the team that are in the same boat as I am in.

    Just for all of you and to get an idea about how much money is in this business. I have invested countless hours building Debloater for the 2,000 some people, approximately that use it, I have gotten to date around $200.00 for my time. Everything related to SuperSU script and the discovery of root being able to be obtained by using Kingroot for the Note 4 and all of the countless hours trying to get perm root, $45.00...

    So if anyone thinks that this is all about the money, they need to really look at what a normal minimum wage person could make what I have gained in short order. Yet, I have invested literally weeks and months into all of the above and I know some of my team members have also invested a significant amount of their free time as well looking at perm root and developing roms, tools, etc with little appreciation from the community in any monetary form.

    So ask yourself, is this for the money or because it is fun and exciting and is a challenge ? And that maybe is why we are doing it...

    Guys, we're still on it. Don't give up yet. We're even trying unconventional methods..
    28
    Update..

    One click SuperSU-Me coming to you soon in an apk. Yep, just click a button and it will completely remove all the Kingroot garbage and install SuperSU for you. No more scripts, no more PC, etc..

    Still need to root with Kingroot, but so fast and easy now with this new method.
