The Sprint phone carrier network over in the United States has the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone available in the LTE edition with the N910P model number. If you have that device and are running the Android 4.4.4 KitKat software version, you can follow the guide below to learn how to free yourself of unwanted bloatware, speed your device up, allow extra for apps and even change the appearance and features by installing a custom ROM.
- The Samsung galaxy Note 4 comes in many different model numbers from different carrier networks. Only follow this guide if you have the N910P variant in your hands.
- The guide is only for those of you who are running the Android 4.4.4 KitKat software update. We do not guarantee this works if you are checking this guide in the future and running some else such as Android 5.0 Lollipop. We will create a new guide for that you can use the search box and find.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- Download the Samsung USB Drivers for mobile phones from our drivers page here.
- You want to restart the computer after installing the drivers so the drivers start working properly, otherwise you might find yourself with the same problem.
- You must have a Windows computer and not a Linux or Mac computer to follow the guide. The Odin application we have does not work for any other OS apart from the Redmond variety.
HOW TO ROOT THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 4 SM-N910P
- Download the CF-Auto-Root tool required from this page.
- Download the required version of Odin from here.
- On your computer, download and extract both packages to desktop.
- Run the Odin program and leave it open without anything inside.
- Boot the Note 4 to Down load Mode by pressing the Volume Down + Power + Home buttons and then holding down the Power button again when the warning screen happens.
- Connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
- Wait for the Odin tool to say “added” and the ID: COM port changes color.
- Click the PDA button and upload the tar.md5 executable file.
- Click “Start”. Do not adjust any of the other default Settings.
- The device will automatically reboot and finish with root access.
Great! Now you can install the root checker application from the Google Play Store and verify everything is working the way you desire.
