Some people like to say that rooting with Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root tool is the beginner way of rooting a Samsung smartphone. If you are one of these people, then you will be pleased to know that there isn’t a version of the CF-Auto-Root that is currently capable of rooting the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone when it is running on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software updates. US phone carrier specific models of smartphones can often cause havoc within the rooting community as companies like to lock in their system apps, so you have to use them–or at least have to keep them on there, so they take up additional memory.
One sure fire way to break out of those shackles is if you find that a custom recovery image is available to be installed. With a custom recovery, we can flash the SuperSU on just about anything as the installation directly from the custom recovery partition handles everything very easily in comparison to what a one-click rooting tool needs to accomplish to get the job done with your stock recovery partition still intact.
