How to root Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo SM-N7505 on Android 5.1.1 [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 [1]The CF-Auto-Root tool is always flashed with the Odin flashing tool–an app made for Windows computers that is also allegedly made by Samsung developers that was leaked but never saw an official release. The Odin flashing tool is the primary app used on a computer for all Samsung owners to flash all kinds of stock ROMs from official Samsung sources. It is also the app that people use to flash TWRP Recovery if they want a custom recovery.

The CF-Auto-Root tool is developed by a guy who goes by the alias of Chainfire and people love using the automatic one-click rooting tool because it is quick, easy and doesn’t involve a custom recovery. Not everyone wants to have a custom recovery installed because they might not have any interest in flashing a custom ROM, kernel, taking NANDroid backups and so forth.




  1. Download the CF-Auto-Root [3] tool for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo SM-N7505 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software updates.
  2. Open the Downloads folder on the computer and then extract the rooting file to the Downloads folder.
  3. Double-click on the Odin flashing application that is now in the Downloads folder and the flashing tool opens.
  4. Boot the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphone into the download mode [4] and then connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
    Check you can see a yellow or blue color coming from the ID: COM on the Odin user interface. (The Samsung USB Drivers are not yet working if you cannot see any color coming from the ID: COM port. try installing the Universal Windows ADB Driver if you cannot get the Samsung drivers to work).
  5. Do not make any changes from the default settings that are available from the Odin user interface.
  6. Click the AP button that is available from Odin and then click through to the Downloads folder and select the rooting file that is available.
  7. Select the start button from Odin.
  8. Wait until Odin shows a green box wit ha pass message inside before disconnecting from the computer.

In conclusion, that is how to root Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo SM-N7505 running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software updates by using Chainfire’s SuperSU. The Galaxy Note 3 Neo reboots by itself back into the normal mode which is the mode where you typically use the Android operating system. There is one difference you can notice when it does which is the SuperSU application that is now available from the app drawer. That SuperSU app is what the CF-Auto-Root tool just installed and enabled by flashing a modified recovery image and a modified cache image to get that done. The Note 3 Neo itself is left with the stock recovery and usual cache when the process is complete because the CF-Auto-Root tool puts everything back the way it started once it has successfully enabled the SuperSU on the smartphone. All of that is done by the time you get the message on the screen letting you know that it is going to reboot in ten seconds.
