If you are the owners of the N910F LTE variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and are running the Android 4.4.4 KitKat software update, you can easily follow the guide below to gain root access. After you have gained root, you can install custom ROMs, application from Google Play and other sources that wouldn’t usually work, reduce the amount of bloatware on the device, speed up the internals and much more. Learn how to do all that on your Note after the jump.
- You must have the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with model number SM-N910F LTE to follow this guide. The reason is the files are only made for that model number. Check your model by navigating to the About Device menu from the Settings on the phone.
- You want to be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat software and not the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. We cannot assure Google didn’t patch the exploit we are using in this guide and that’s why it’s written for the last stage of KitKat.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- You can only follow the guide if you have a Windows PC. Do not install the files on Mac or any other operating system. They don’t work unless it’s Windows.
- You should download the latest Samsung USB Drivers for mobile phones from our downloads page. Scroll down the list until you get to the Sammy name. Remember to restart the computer after installing the drivers or else the drivers won’t kick into effect.
- Applying the steps below will void the warranty if you have some left. Install an unroot app from Google Play and take away the root access to gain the warranty again. Then you’ll be able to send it away for free repairs.
