How to Convert Sprint/Verizon Galaxy Note 4 into Galaxy S7 Edge!


For those of you who have Sprint or Verizon Galaxy Note 4, you were probably disappointed to find 4G LTE data and everything working on Dr. Ketan’s ROM but SMS sending was broke.

*Note – This guide should also work works on Verizon Galaxy Note 4 if you have unlocked your bootloader! (See video here)

If you don’t have Sprint Note 4, please click here to see S7 Edge conversion for other models.

Well, after pulling out my hair for almost a week, I finally was able to get it working fully with a repeatable step-by-step tutorial.  This basically involved installing Lollipop OK1 modem/bootloader and also re-installing stock SMS APK file from a stock deodexed Sprint Marshmallow ROM.  After that, everything works including 4G LTE data, mobile hotspot, and SMS/MMS.

The steps are pretty simple, install the ROM, install Vitamin kernel, install SuperSU, and install HighOnAndroid N910P APN/SMS/Data Fix then install the Lollipop OK1 modem/bootloader using ODIN.  If you don’t know how to do this, you can follow the step-by-step YouTube video tutorial above.

*Note – SMS currently works but MMS is broke for Sprint Note 4.  For Verizon Note 4, same thing for default messaging app but if you install 3rd party apps like Google Messenger, MMS will work.

    The Dr Ketan M5 Rom is almost perfect. But the GPS is 98% always searching. That is a most have feature for me. I might just go back to stock.

    I like this ROM but it has a few annoying problems.
    – Two battery % symbols are stupid plus there’s no clock.
    – GPS in Google maps is really slow.
    – ‘Always On’ feature doesn’t work. I was looking forward to it.
    – Screen rotation jams too often.
    – Battery life ain’t so great.

    I flashed the Rom everything was working except for data. So I did a backup before I installed the rom. I followed your video to a T. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910P. I wiped the rom in twrp recovery 3 times, even going into advance settings and wiping everything there except for Storage and Sd card. I did a restore and rebooted my phone. I get past the samsung galaxy note 4 screen and the samsung screen, but I get stuck on the yellow Sprint screen. Please help me.
