Root on Sprint Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop update N910PVPU1BOB7 using CF-Auto root has worked. The N910PVPU1BOB7 was officially pushed on March 05, 2015 from N910PVPU1ANK2 4.4.2 KitKat to 5.0.1 Lollipop. So those who got the update and lose root and might want to regain it back then you may use the CF-Auto. Once your Galaxy Note 4 is rooted you can also install the TWRP recovery if you want to customize your device further.
The CF-Auto Root method has been confirmed and it worked fine according to our fellas at XDA-Developers. But then again this rooting process is for advanced users only and not highly recommended for those who are not tinkerers in the first place.
In addition, installing root in your Galaxy Note 4 trips the Knox flag, which means you will be unable to use any of the Knox features anymore. Some company requires KNOX to its employees for security purposes. So if you don’t want to screw up KNOX then do not root your phone.
