  1. Hello, i tried rooting my note 4 and something went wrong somewhere, because now my note 4 keeps turning on and off nothing works. Have you got any ideas on how to recover it? i have tried everything. cheers

  2. I had the same issue, still can’t root, tried many methods.

    To get around the constant rebooting issue. Pull out the battery to switch off the phone. Put the phone back into download mode.

    Flash a recovery using Odin, now the phone will boot again.

  3. I have N9100 Hong Kong version (trlteduoszh , N9100ZHU1ANL1 ) which root file should i download . File is only available for china version

  4. I rooted my note 4 what works great but step 10 ” Launch the SuperSU app and update the SU binary and disable KNOX.” this won’t work.
    I also can’t install twrp on my phablet.

    anny ideas??

  5. I have same outcome as Dawid.

    The process does exactly what it does in video until step 10. SuperSU is present but when opened just opens .. doesn’t ask about knox etc.

    I have Canadian variant SM-N910W8 (Canadia, Qualcomm). Are there perhaps some ‘hidden’ steps that the authors didn’t put into video because perhaps they thought they were obvious?

    thx

  6. I also tried this to root my note 4 SM-n910p lollipop 5.1.1 and stuck in boot loop pls update the solution to come over it with proper link

  7. Hi, anyone knows if it’s possible to root my SM-N9100 (hongkong, qualcomm) with the SM-N9100 (China, Qualcomm) variant stated above? Cheers!
