android-marshmallow-updateThese are the instructions you need to root Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910C smartphones running on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software updates by using an updated version of Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root tool that is specially made for the Note 4 with that model number. The guide will install and enable SuperSU for your Note 4 smartphone which will allow you to start installing the root apps from the Google Play Store and other sources online.


  • Your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone can be running any firmware build number on the Android 6.0.1 software update to use this guide. Chainfire just gives a build number you can see that he used for the rooting so you can use it as guidelines, but you do not need to flash any particular firmware.
  • You must have a computer that is running a version of Windows operating systems to follow this guide or else the flashing tool we are using will not work.
  • You must have the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone that has the SM-N910C model number to use this guide. Any other model number in the Note 4 range will likely get bricked when flashing this file according to the developer.


  • Download and install the Samsung USB Drivers for the Galaxy Note 4 smartphone directly to the computer and run them before you start with the guide or else the Odin flashing application will not detect your smartphone.
  • Unlock the Developer Options menu on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone by tapping on the Settings icon > About Device and then tapping on the Build Number seven or more times. Continue tapping on the build number that is on the display until the operating system tells you that you are using the device as a developer. That is letting you know that the Developer Options menu is now available from the Settings.
  • Head back to the Settings menu now and scroll down the list until you can see the Developer Options menu. Tap on the Developer Options and then tap where it has the box available for the USB Debugging Mode, so it is turned on.
