    • Try other software for rooting cause i have try rooting my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with One Click Root and it works perfectly with no ease. There’s are also software like Kingo Root, Farmaroot, SRSroot and more that can you try also. But i will try this thing on some device and hope it works or may this tool support this phone.

  • Well, guys, I’ve tried this method multiple times, and it has only rooted once, and then the device would reboot every 3 minutes on the mark.

    No other method, Chainfire nor TWRP will root 5.1.1 on my SM-N910C with the just released N910CXXU1COH4_N910COLB1COH3_N910CXXU1COH4_HOME.tar.md5.

    Anyone have additional instructions or assistance to get my Note 4 on 5.1.1 to root?

    Thanks.

  • after clicking on the start button when flashing the bootloader, my phone went reboot, after the reboot it said installing file or something. but after awhile , it said no command. may i know what else i can do here?

  • Im happy this worked for me, but now every hour or 30 mins my note 4 just restarts by itself,
    does anyone have any advice how to return the phone to the state it was before i started rooting it, i mean downloading stock bootloader etc?

    many thanks

  • hey guys this worked well for me but now my phone sometimes restarts every half an hour or two, how do i download the stock bootloader and just go back to how my phone was before i rooted it ,?

    many thanks

  • Is there a Video showing how to do the above in detail, I’m new at this and don’t want to mess up my phone. I noticed the ” i ” wasn’t in the build number of the sm-n910c above info and thought well it’s possible to miss something else here in this info, so that’s why I’m asking if there is a detailed video. Mine is the N910CXXU1OI4 the one mentioned here is the N910CXXU10″H”4 variant, would that still work with mine?

    Thank you
