For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 so you can run rooted apps and install custom ROMs, here’s how to root your Galaxy Note 4.
UPDATE: THIS ROOT METHOD DOES NOT WORK on Android 5.1.1! See our Android 5.1.1 root method here instead!!!
Before we begin, this root method uses ChainFire’s CF AutoRoot to give you root. This root method does void KNOX warranty so we highly recommend you to get insurance before doing so (since with insurance you can get a new phone even if you void warranty).
This root method will work on most Galaxy Note 4 models including:
- SM-N910F – International
- SM-N910G/SM-N910H Asian
- SM-N910T – T-Mobile U.S.
- SM-N910P – Sprint
- SM-N910R4 – US Cellular
- SM-N910W8 – Canadian
- SM-N910C – Thailand
- SM-N910U – Hong Kong
- SM-N910K/SM-N910L/SM-N910S – Korean KT, LG, SK Telecom
For AT&T or Verizon Note 4, you may have to wait for another root method.
*Note – This root method DOES NOT ERASE ANYTHING on your phone.
This root tutorial is for Windows computer but you can use JODIN instead ODIN on Mac OSX or Linux/Ubuntu.
Step 1. Power off your Galaxy Note 4 then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together until you see the warning screen like below:
