Android 8.1 Oreo on Galaxy Note 4! [Install Guide/HOWTO]

While Samsung has stopped updating the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 since Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, you can still manually install your Note 4 to the latest Android 8.1 Oreo by installing a custom ROM if you have one of the models supported.

NOTE: This is an AOSP ROM! (What is AOSP?)

Supported models:

  • SM-N910F, SM-N910G, Sprint SM-N910P, SM-N910R4, T-Mobile SM-N910T, SM-N910T3, Verizon SM-N910V, Canadian SM-N910W8
  • Chinese Dual SIM models: SM-N9100ZC, SM-N9100ZH, SM-N91006W, SM-N91009W

Now, Lineage OS ROM 15.1 is based on Android 8.1 Oreo which will give you all the latest Android updates and features but this is still a “beta” version, meaning there may be bugs.  In my testings, I found everything to work well including calls, 4G LTE, bluetooth, all except broken front camera and video recording plus root.  For camera, you will be stuck with still photos on the back camera and please do not flash Magisk or SuperSU on this ROM as rooting will break your phone calls(it is a bug).  But these should be fixed in the near future and when they are, you should be able to update your ROM easily without starting over.

UPDATE: Camera works fine actually on the latest version and also root too!

For step-by-step installation, please refer to the video tutorial above.
