The Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910C is the official European variant of Sammy’s large smartphone series for this year. It comes with the powerful Exynos 5433 system chip and not the Snapdragon 805 that other parts of the world received with the N910S variant. The Exynos of this variety comes with 8 core Cortex A57+A53 and clocked between 400MHz to 1300MHz.
Anyhow, if you are looking to unlock the system internals and open the device up away from manufacture restrictions, you must follow the steps we are presenting to you below. Once unchained, users can experiment with custom applications that are not available from the Google Play Store, custom ROMs and custom firmware if there are any available for you model. There’s not a great deal going around at the present time since this large mobile came out of the box with Android 4.4.3 KitKat. As you know, the latest software anyone is running is the Android 4.4.4 KitKat since the nexus 9 and the nexus 6 are not out yet. When they are official released with Android 5.0 Lollipop the newfangled software will start trickling down to other devices. We expect the Google Play Edition and the early nexus devices such as the nexus 5 to get first chance at the fresh software iteration. However, the Note 4 series by Samsung will not be far behind.
The rooting package we are using today is the ChainFire Auto-root. We prefer this method above all others since it unlocks the OS just the same and gives users as close to the stock Android experience as possible. ChainFire is a supremely talented individual and he knows how to create an easy guide that just about anyone can follow. Furthermore, it’s a quick guide that takes under a few minutes once we get started. Nevertheless, it’s important we run through all the precautions before starting the steps so you know what is happening and what choices you wish to make before kicking things off.
Details of Note
- Firstly, it’s a great idea to backup everything you have installed on the OS so that if you lose the data you can restore it again. Everything like the phone contacts, SMS texts, MMS messages, call logs, market apps, videos, pictures and more. We must make copies of them all. there’s more than one way to do this. If you already have your preferred method for backups then you can continue with that. However, those looking for advice will be interested to learn of a nifty application called Helium available from the Google Play Store. Helium is the best way to sync the contacts and backup those market apps so you won’t lose them. Moreover, use SMS backup+ to make copies of the text messages. Since this is a Samsung device you may prefer installing Samsung Kies and storing the data that way. Kies is also fantastic for coming up with the up-to-date USB drivers.
- Since this is installing the package using the Odin app, we must use a Windows-based OS with a notebook, laptop or desktop computer. the Samsung developers do not make the Odin package for Mac or Linux machines, therefore, you can’t expect it to work. It doesn’t look like changing any time soon either, so if you are in the hunt for a new operating system we suggest picking up the latest Microsoft Windows if you are an Android enthusiast.
- You must stop all security programs from running on the computer and the Android phablet before continuing since they are known to interfere with proceeding.s it’s not essential as sometimes it can work perfectly fine without putting a stop to any of them. However, if you would prefer to skip any of the potential problems go ahead and stop them now. Just remember to start them back up again before you begin browsing the web since you are exposed to vulnerabilities such as the awful Trojan Horse without antivirus.
- Turn the phablet on and stopover at the Developer Options menu where you must enable the USB Debugging Mode. Moreover, download and install the latest USB Drivers from the Samsung official website if you are not using Kies. Those using Kies must disable it before starting the steps. the drivers will carry over without the need of it running.
