The Galaxy Note 4 it’s an excellent equipment without any doubt. But despite the excellent hardware there is also things that can be improved in what concern to the software. Little configuations that improve the device ae only possible if we have root permitions, in other words, if we have permitions to enjoy the most of our equipment. There is also a solution where we want to install some applications and that doesn’t work because we don’t have Root permitions.
Because of that we decided to share with you a tutorial that allows you to have to maximum control of your device: how to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The method presented here uses the ChainFire’s CF AutoRoot tool that voids the Knox warranty and because of that we recomend you to do an insurance before you do this (with insurance it’s possible to ask a new device even if the warranty it’s void).
The root method works on the most Samsung Galaxy Note 4 models, including:
- SM-N910F – International Version
- SM-N910G/SM-N910H – Asian Version
- SM-N910T – US T-Mobile Version
- SM-N910P – Sprint Version
- SM-N910R4 – US Cellular Version
- SM-910W8 – Canadian Version
- SM-N910C – Thai Version
- SM-N910U – Hong Kong Version
- SM-N910K/SM-N910L/SM-N910S – KT Korean, LG, Telecom SK Version
- SM-N9100/SM-N9106W/SM-N9108V/SM-N9109W – Other Versions
By following this tutorial you shouldn’t lost anything on your device. However it’s always better to do a backup so you don’t lose any data.
The Android Emotions does not take the responsability for any damage arising on the equipment. The tutorial should be followed step by step and if you have any doubt you should write that on the comments before start the process described in the tutorial. You should know that this process could violate your equipment warranty.
This tutorial it’s made for Windows users but if you are a Mac OSX or Linux/Ubuntu useryou can use the JODIN instead the ODIN (that we use in this tutorial). The ODIN it’s given in the file pack to root your device.

- Extract the file that you just extracted and next open that folder. You should see several diferent files but don’t worry about that. For now, start the ODIN3 with a double click on the ODIN3-v3.07.exe file.
- After open the ODIN you should see a box with blue backgound and a random COM number. If you see this it means that you have correctly installed your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 drivers. If you don’t see this you should do the download and install the drivers of the NOte 4 on your device. After install the drivers you should close and opne the ODIN so you can check the early described conditions.
- The next step it’s chose the PDA option pressing above the PDA button and selecting the file that ends with “tar.d5″.
- Press the “Start” button and the CF Auto Root should flash your Note 4.
- When the process it’s done you should get “RESET!” message. If the process wasn’t concluded with success ty again with another usb cable.
- Restart the device and you should see a new application installed called “SupeSU”. Congratulations, at this moment you already have Root permitions in your device. But the process isn’t concluded.
- Open the SuperSU application and update the binary files if necessary (the applications asks it if necessary).
- The application can also ask to disable the KNOX and if it does you should do it. The KNOX ends up to be an annoying, unnecessary and unuseful security program that interferes with the root and with the applications that use root.
- It only remains to see if we truly have all of Root permissions on the device. For that you just have to download at the PlayStore the Titanium Backup application, install and execute it. It should appear a window of the Superuser asking if we wnat or don’t want warranty access to the application.
And that’s it, now that we arrive to the end of the tutorial you can now enjoy the most of your Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
