            Ok I followed the following steps:

            1- Flashed CF-Auto-Root with Odin which made my note 4 to be in a bootloop

            2- Flashed TWRP recovery (latest version) using Odin.
            3- TWRP worked in recovery mode. Then used your Kernel and SuperSu files above and it worked 😀

          2. BioBeast says

            Now the phone is rooted, Have you had any luck flashing tekxodus 5.1.1 ROM. I have tried the procedure on XDA but there is something missing. I end up with a blank screen forever!
