Android 6.0 Marshmallow + Root for Galaxy Note 4! [CM13]


For those of you looking for early bird experience into the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow on your Samsung Galaxy Note 4, you will probably have to wait until January or February.  But if you have a rooted phone with TWRP recovery and a model that’s supported (such as the SM-N910F or SM-N910G), you can grab the unofficial CM13 ROM to enjoy Marshmallow today!

This particular build of CM13 ROM actually can be used as daily driver as I have daily driven it for the last 3-4 days.  The only thing NOT working on this ROM is NFC, which isn’t a huge deal breaker for me since I don’t use NFC much.

What’s amazing about this CM13 ROM is that everything else works flawless and you will be able to fully experience the pure Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow.  Even camera for stills and videos work, although for videos you are limited to 1080P.

The ROM also comes with root, you simply need to enable it in developer options.  And you can even enable multi-window mode which you can also find in developer options.

Overall, this is one of the better CM13 builds I’ve seen on non Nexus phones so if you like AOSP (What is AOSP?), definitely give it a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download CM13 ROM for Galaxy Note 4(for SM-G910F or SM-G910G, you can also install on SM-G910T or SM-G910W8 but cellular data will not work.)

    First of all, Thanks a lot for this awesome guide for Marshmallow update for SM-N910G.
    I have just one question, are the S-Pen features work on CM13 ? If not, is there any way to experience the same level of S-Pen/Note features on CM13.

    Thanks again ! 🙂

    Love the Update, but I’m unable to save pictures off either browser – States uploading file but never uploads then automatically force stops the browser, also in settings the Notification light feature when pressed just states “Unfortunately Stopped” and brings you back to home page, as far as everything else … so far so good 🙂

    i have a note 4 SM-G910F (at least i believe so, since i have SM-G910P indicated under the battery and in odin mode but in settings it shows SM-G910F) which was initially running a stock rom 5.1.1

    FYI. I dint make any EFS backup before installing CM13 🙁

    Does anyone every ask……how secure are these unofficial ROMs? If you do banking or read your emails from these customer ROMs? How do you know that your information is not being sent back to some developer servers somewhere?
