For those of you who want to root your Galaxy Note 4 or Note Edge on Android 5.1.1, you will need to flash a custom kernel on top of regular root method, otherwise you may end up in a bootloop. This is because Samsung has updated Android 5.1.1 with root block and the only way to get around it is to install custom kernel before installing SuperSU.
For those of you looking for a versatile AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) with multi-window and floating window like TouchWiz ROMs, definitely check out the latest SOKP ROM.
I have been a great fan of SOKP ROM ever since its birth a few years back and the latest Android 5.1.1 version for the Note 4 is better than ever. Based on latest Android 5.1.1, you will be able to enjoy pure Google Android Lollipop 5.1.1 the way it’s designed to, not a botched version it on TouchWiz.
Need a solid AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) for your Galaxy Note 4 with Android 5.1.1 and root out of the box?
My current favorites include the Resurrection Remix ROM and the CrDroid ROM. Over my month long vacation, I got to test out the CrDroid ROM in Thailand and worked beautifully well for a great/fast AOSP experience. Of course, this is an AOSP ROM so if you use a lot of Samsung specific gadgets (like Gear S watch, S-View Cover), it’s probably not for you as you will lose those features. But if you absolutely need to be on the latest Android 5.1.1 with pure Google, CrDroid is a great choice.
For those of you looking for fast and simple TouchWiz-based custom ROM for your T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4, definitely check out the Rapture ROM.

Tired of waiting for Android Lollipop update on your T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4?
Well, T-Mobile still is lagging behind other carriers and international models by many months but the good news is that Lollipop update is now available for Canadian Note 4 SM-N910W8.
Since T-Mobile Note 4 is 100% compatible with Canadian Note 4, you can go ahead and install the Canadian Lollipop stock ROM on your T-Mobile Note 4.
For those of you who are waiting for Lollipop, Samsung has released Android 5.0.1 Lollipop for most of the international Note 4 models including Korean and European models. These are available mostly for the Korean SM-N910K/SM-N910S/SM-N910L and the European SM-N910F/SM-N910C models. You can grab them at our Galaxy Note 4 Stock Firmware page.
For those of you who need to unroot your Galaxy Note 4, perhaps because you need to return your phone for warranty, need to get out of a nasty bootloop, or simply tired of using custom ROMs and want to run stock, you can do so easily by re-installing the stock firmware.
Now, unrooting with stock firmware does not erase anything if you are coming from stock ROM or firmware, it will simply update you to the latest stock firmware you flash. However, if coming from custom ROM, you may need to do a factory reset. Doing a factory reset in stock recovery (after unrooting) WILL ERASE EVERYTHING on your phone. You may have to do that so if you are coming from custom ROM, BACKUP EVERYTHING on your phone before following the guide.
