Where there is a will there is a way, and once again well known Android security expert Beaups has shown us just how much will and determination he has! The Galaxy Note 4 on Verizon released with a locked bootloader while many assumed that root would eventually come for the device, as it did, many VZW Note 4 users never expected the Bootloader would ever be unlocked.
Thanks to Beaups of TheRoot.Ninja team along with the help of team mates including JCase no doubt we now have a bootloader unlock method for the Verizon Note 4. The exploit used takes advantage of the eMMC backdoor on Samsung devices. Many devices may be affected, but using the exploit for bootloader unlocking may only be limited to certain devices.
The way the exploit "SamDunk" works is by changing the eMMC CID to match one from a factory dev-edition device allowing for the bootloader to be unlocked. The entire exploit is outlined in full detail at the link below.
