    I am trying to Root my Note 4 running this OS:

    N910CXXU1AOA2_N910COJV1AOA2_N910CXXU1ANL3_HOME.tar.md5

    I installed the OS and upon the initial setup after entering my email and stuff, the moment it started to redownload all my apps from the online backup cloud, I removed the battery

    Now I tried rooting it using this CF-Autoroot but this is what I get:



    <ID:0/004> Added!!
    <ID:0/004> Odin v.3 engine (ID:4)..
    <ID:0/004> File analysis..
    <ID:0/004> SetupConnection..
    <ID:0/004> Initialzation..
    <ID:0/004> Get PIT for mapping..
    <ID:0/004> Firmware update start..
    <ID:0/004> SingleDownload.
    <ID:0/004> recovery.img
    <ID:0/004> NAND Write Start!!
    <ID:0/004> FAIL!
    <ID:0/004>
    <ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)


    any help?

    It is a SM-N910C international bought in Dubai, could that be the problem?

    When I rooted my Note 4 after upgrading to Lollipop, the first step in the rooting process was supposed to fail. Did you continue to follow the instructions after it fails?

    yes after the fail I tried many times, tried restarting the phone by pulling the battery and putting it back in Download Mode but no luck. I am tried of this so I'll just see how this One Click Root goes

    These forums don't focus on Android Development.

    You will get plenty of help at xda, but, you need to read entire threads and really search before asking questions. They won't just answer a question that doesn't belong, the members will be snarky if you haven't searched on forums or read the entire thread and it was covered in the thread.

    Well I had ZERO experience in rooting phones and was successful my very first try on my Note 4 and Note Edge. If I can do it, you can to. You really can't mess it up if you take your time and read each step a few times before going forward.

    They were able to root my device!

    What they did that I did differently is disable the Activation Lock from the Settings / Security which I didn't do before

    Happy it worked out. I had never heard of that place before. I hope you didn't pay much for that.

    Yes, that needs to be done.

    I also hope it wasn't much and they were legit. I don't like ANYONE having access in my phone. I only let AT&T and Samsung, sometimes remote into my phone, I try not to even let them do it if I can get by without them doing it.

    It cost me 40 USD but I was that desparate! that lollipop crippled my phone so much in terms of speed and battery and even with the security wipe / cache wipe it helped a bit but it was no where near the smoothness of Kit Kat! I feel like I just bought a new phone! Disabled Knox right away and never even saw the OS update!

    This is the correct root file if anyone needs it, the one I had earlier was wrong also: https://download.chainfire.eu/559/CF...xx-smn910c.zip

    $40 is still an ouch.. I had never rooted, decided to root my S5, after reading the thread for the AT&T S5 at xda, asking a couple of questions, it took me less than 5 minutes. I used TowelRoot to root mine.

    Do you have an international phone? Or a US branded phone with the carrier you are using?

    Hey, do you have a link to the root process? I have rooted all my prior devices using ODIN, but have left this one alone so far.

    Thanks!

    international, I don't mind paying for the Note 4 with Kit Kat that I have now! You don't understand the beauty and snappiness of Kit Kat until you have used Lollipop for a month like I did

    I thought that was what you had.

    Yeah I understand KitKat and Lollipop both, I've had both of them the last month, I just prefer Lollipop myself.
