Android 5.1 + Root for Galaxy Note 4! [CM Remix ROM]


For those of you looking to try experience the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop today, you are in luck as there’s several Android 5.1 custom ROMs floating around.  Of all the ones I’ve tried so far, I can recommend you the CM Remix ROM, which comes with latest Android 5.1 and root.

The CM Remix ROM is a custom AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?), so you will lose all of your Samsung TouchWiz features like heart rate monitor, IR blaster, etc…etc…  This ROM is really for those of you who want to convert your Note 4 into a full-fledged Nexus device and anyone who wants to try Android 5.1 (you can make a backup ROM then try the ROM, restore ROM after trying).

The CM Remix ROM is a beast when it comes to performance, both in benchmarks (I got near 52,000 on Antutu) and real life.  The UI is so fast, you will love how fast your Note 4 runs after installing this ROM.

Of course, CM Remix ROM comes loaded with more features than you can ask for, you can expect every AOSP feature  you’ve tried before to be on it including full status bar, notification drawer, sounds, display, lockscreen, and button customizations.  Also there are nifty features like App Circle Sidebar, App Sidebar, Viper4Android, and much much more.

Now, there is one thing missing, the default camera does not work, it comes with Open Camera app, which works well for everything except 4K.  If you need 4K video recording, this ROM will not be able to do it correctly.  But this should be fixed in future updates for sure.

If you want to be on the bleeding edge of Android OS along with a ton of customization, CM Remix is definitely the way to go.  This ROM will make your phone fly so definitely give it a flash this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    • Michael says:

    • Rick says:

      You’re lucky your phone even rings, I installed this rom on my Note 4 for sprint and my cellular data would work for a bit and then would cease to work at all, would have to wipe the phone and do a reinstall, did this about 5 times and said fuck it and went back to stock rom with root.

  8. Michael says:

    This is really a nice rom, but the problem in having is I can’t get XSPOSED INSTALLER TO WORK. I have tried everything from XDA, but know luck. Can anybody help?? I have a NOTE 4 (SPRINT)

  10. Brian Flores says:

    OH! Im in love! Ive been using HyperDrive since i first got my Note 4 and thought it would be quick but no good, as Samsung’s KNOX system kept causing malfunctions. HyperDrive has nothing on CMRemix, Its super quick at doing everything! downloads apps in just a few seconds. Numerous built in tweaks and just runs really well. Battery life is also boosted in CM12 and lasts me much longer. All im missing is CRT.. Only way to get it back is Xposed but it does not work on 5.1.1 yet but Im happy! Keep up the awesome work guys!

  12. Albert says:

    Hey Max,
    I installed this on my sprint note 4 last night and everything was working then my mobile data stop working. I tried to reset it and reboot, adjust the APN n\but nothing worked. I went back to my saved rom which was the original but rooted and still no data. Just not i was able to reset my data connection, it works now. I still want to use the this one I just don’t know how to change the APN for it to work if it happens again.


  13. tipking says:

    Loved the rom but unable to send sms. Can receive them but not send. flashed back to stock.

    • Rick says:

      tipking, I had the same problem, my data wouldn’t work I couldn’t send messages. Every once and a while it would let messages through then it would stop working. I really like the rom to be honest, but that is a big deal for me, I have to have messages.
