The Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition Is In Stock And Ready To Ship From Samsung For $
By Michael Crider
Ah, Developer Editions, what would we do without you? Probably suck it up and buy the retail versions, since anyone who's actually in the market for a Developer Edition phone on Verizon doesn't have a choice of GSM carriers with unlocked phones. If you've been drooling over the Galaxy Note 4's high-end hardware but lamenting Verizon's locked bootloader policy, Samsung is ready to sell you an unlockable phone. That will be $, please.
The Developer Edition of the Note 4 is identical to the Verizon retail version, up to and including the customized software build with Verizon's bloatware apps. The only difference is that, like most of Samsung's non-carrier devices, the bootloader can be unlocked via a fastboot command. This allows end users to load up a custom recovery (again, like most Android devices) and easily flash a Superuser package for root, various modifications, or a full custom ROM. While most high-end phones eventually get some kind of root method even if they have a locked bootloader, it's getting harder and harder, and buying a Developer Edition is pretty much the only way to make sure you can mess around with your new Verizon flagship device thanks to the carrier's semi-walled CDMA network. (It's also possible that a tool like Sunshine can unlock the bootloader on the retail version, but again, I wouldn't count on that.) Be glad of the opportunity, folks - not every phone gets a Developer Edition variant.
The Verizon Developer Edition of the Note 4 comes directly from Samsung with no subsidy option, and it's the same price as the non-contract retail version. ROM/root enthusiasts, remember that the Nexus 6 will be offered on Verizon, and presumably it will have an unlockable bootloader despite the carrier's standard policy, like the Galaxy Nexus from

Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 is now available in a developer flavor for those of you who like to tweak and tinker with your phones.
Available through Samsung at a price tag of $, the Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition is virtually identical in features to the retail model sold by Verizon. You'll find the same inch 2,x1,pixel screen, megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, S-Pen stylus, and metal rim.
The version sold by Samsung is tied to Verizon, so by default you'll have to use it on Verizon's network. It also comes with all the extra software and apps courtesy of Verizon. But you can easily wipe those away.
A developer edition of a phone allows you to replace the existing OS and add-ons with a custom ROM. A custom ROM typically carries just the Android OS and the basic apps, so you're not saddled with any of the features added by the manufacturer or the carrier. From there, you can install a variety of apps of your own choosing and make other changes. You can also install different custom ROMs offered by developers, each with their own features and apps.
Though the term "developer" makes it sound like the phone is geared just toward app developers, anyone who wants to tinker with the device can buy it if they're willing to plunk down the $
Those of you who prefer to stick with a locked, carrier-subsidized Galaxy Note 4 can pick one up through Verizon or AT&T for $ with a two-year contract. The phone is also available through T-Mobile and Sprint.
Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition is now in stock for $
It has been about a week since we learned that Verizon would be bringing you the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition, and it has now arrived.
Despite early reports, Samsung and Verizon are not offering the device at a discount, pull out your wallet and count to $ to get your hands on this unlocked bootloader of a monster.
Verizon’s approach to the Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition is simple. They take the exact same Galaxy Note 4 that is locked down, with the same software (and bloatware) and simply allow the bootloader to unlock via fastboot command. You are free to root and ROM to your hearts content from there.
If you needed a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the Korean giant’s latest flagship device. Leading off with that inch x resolution Super AMOLED display, this Snapdragon powered device, with 3GB of RAM, is about as good as you can get these days. A 16MP OIS camera is a great addition as well, especially backed by that microSD slot that is lacking on a growing number of devices these days.
Be sure to check out our full Note 4 review if you’d like more details, or if you don’t, that is a good looking phone and worth checking out even if you are not in the market to buy.
If you’ve been holding off for this unlocked version, head over to the Samsung website to grab your Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition now.
Now that it is here, will you pull the trigger on the Note 4 Developer Edition, or is perhaps the Nexus 6 more to your liking?

Root Verizon Galaxy Note 4 SM-NV (Developer Edition)
When Samsung launched the first device of its Galaxy Note line, many people doubted its success due to its “ridiculously big” display. Well, the Korean OEM proved all negative speculations wrong and established a new kind of device (known as a phablet) in the market. The company has now released the fourth generation of the Galaxy Note with a huge QHD screen and the most advanced version of the S-Pen.
As you know, it’s impossible to make the most of an Android device without root access. Fortunately, the users of the Galaxy Note 4 did not have to wait for a working root method. Well-known root-god, Chainfire, released his CF-Auto-Root package for almost all Galaxy Note 4 variants just about a week ago. However, due to locked bootloaders, the AT&T and Verizon models of the Note 4 have not yet received a root method. We can only hope that someone finds a root exploit soon!
Anyway, if you own the recently released Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition (SM-NV), you do not need to wait to gain root access on your device. Actually, the developer edition comes with an unlocked bootloader and so, it’s easy to root it using Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root.
If you have opted for the developer edition of the Galaxy Note 4 from Verizon, it simply means that you like to enjoy system tweaks and customization Android is capable of. By rooting your Note 4 and installing a custom recovery afterward, you will be able to play with root apps, modify system files and flash custom ROMs and mods. Just download the CF-Root package cooked for your device and install it using Odin to get root access.
The root procedure described below is considered risky as it does not only void warranty but also put your Note 4 at risk of soft-bricking. In case of a soft-brick, you can restore your device by flashing stock firmware via Odin. If you make your mind to proceed with rooting, do it at your own responsibility.
