I don' think this is the right place for this, but it't not my job to decide.

Anyways, which ROM are you using? Are you on stock TouchWiz?

You should've asked in the Q&A section. Thread moderators will probably move this one as soon as they notice, don't worry, you're a relatively new user so you can't know everything yet.

By the way, you can't root with Magisk, if you're not rooted with other methods, because your bootloader is still locked and neither stock recovery or Odin would allow it. You first need to get root access by using some specific software such as ChainFire Autoroot. There are some guides available, but first you have to search for the zip file on the ChainFire website (link), pay attention to the model and check if Odin is included with the package. If it's not, just do a Google search for a fairly recent version. When you have everything you need, use this guide to root your device (link), just go to the second post for the exact procedure.

Once you're done, use some software to verify root access, then download Flashify from Play Store. Go to the TWRP website and get the latest recovery (version 3.1.1) for your device. N910G codename should be 'trlte', better verify yourself to avoid issues. You can now flash the recovery using Flashify.

You're now at a good point, your device is ready for further steps to get Magisk. I'll post the rest of the procedure as soon as you're ready, I just want to warn you that Magisk could possibly create some issues like app instability or inability to use certain services. I got rid of it after few months and flashed SuperSU instead, which is the better option in my opinion. I've never used it on TouchWiz so I can't tell you anything specific about that, you may want to backup your current ROM into an external MicroSD using TWRP, just in case.

Thank you for the advices. I did root following all those steps u gave me. For rooting i dont have a problem but its only after which when im tryin to install magisk i get error sayin that magisk only works for lollipop. Abit confused there. From my knowledge i knew that to install magisk i need to unroot superSu which i did & kept my twrp custom recovery. But somehow i cant seem to keep the twrp recovery & thats where i cant flash the 13.3v magisk. :confused:

As I thought, Magisk won't work with the stock ROM. The main issue here is the kernel, which doesn't allow such modification. ChainFire has found a workaround to bring SuperSU on TouchWiz, but the fact it's not open source doesn't allow Magisk developers to use the same method. The head developer, few months ago, said that he was working on it and he was making some progress, but apparently it's not ready yet. I think it's not worth trying again, it won't work at the moment. I suggest keeping an eye on the thread, in case there are some updates. At the moment, I recommend either using SuperSU (which I recommend anyways), or flashing a different ROM, since deodexed TouchWiz ROMs with H-Vitamin or RAM Kernel do actually support Magisk, I tried myself.

The thing is ive seen in youtube they do get to root via magisk. I need this as to get my pokemon go workin.. [emoji23]
Black Shade is right about the kernel. Using the wrong kernel will cause the install to fail. I'm on an n910t3, using ramrom v3 kernel, and I'm using magisk 13.3 for Android pay and viper audio. There's an official magisk 13.3 thread on xda somewhere. You should try there as a start.

Found working magisk root method note 4 sm-n910g

Hello, I'm unsure if it'll work for you but it did for me.

1. Downloaded latest firmware from sammobile & flashed it to phone. (You can just try and find your current boot.img and skip to step 4)
2. Opened stock ROM zip & md5 file - using 7zip
3. Extracted boot.img
4. Place onto SD-CARD
5. Install Magisk apk
6. Magisk > settings > output format > change to ".tar" file
7. Magisk > patch boot.img
8. Locate "patched boot.img" > flash in Odin AP


Done

Hi, I know is kind of old post here. Just wanna ask, have you try the latest version of Magisk on your note 4 SM-N910G? New version of magisk does not have the option to choose the output format to ".tar" file.
