How do I flash with Heimdal on linux, it only wants tar.gz? Do I rename og repack??

Heimdal does not work any longer, I was compelled myself to using an old windows pc:(

No joy for linux users.

Anyway, this update is ok for my n910f whose original CSC was HUI, but it was mixed with TPD, because I had previously flashed the 5.0.1 dutch firmware. I flashed the update without wiping anything without any issue.

Hi,

Thank you for a great rom.
My original ROM was N910FXXU1ANJ4 - CSC: XFV
I upgrade to N910FXXU1BOC3 - CSC : DBT. I then rooted the phone and installed TWRP and Super SU.
Worked fine for the past six months although KNOX tripped.
I have just updated to your ROM N910FXXU1COH4_N910FOXA1BOC3 using ODIN.
Did not clear data or cache. Working fine.
How do I root this ROM?

Best to do a factory reset and reinstall all apps and data

Thank you.
Followed your thread.
Rooted and working, although I do not see speed improvement greater than 8%.
Antutu benchmark went up to 42000 (Lollipop 5.1.1.) from 39000 (Lollipop 5.0.1).

Did a complete factory reset (wipe cache, dalvick and all data).
Great ROM
Antutu benchmark went up to 51000. Fantastic.

Traslation:
Good morning,
I've just got a Galaxy Note 4 N910F.
It was on 5.1.1 after an update.
After that I tried to root it.
For this reason I've flashed 4.4.4, thinking I would find a way to root it without tripping knox.
I'd like to know if there is a tutorial for rooting an official firmware for any French carrier without tripping knox.
Thank you.

    I have decided to create this thread due to extraordinary success of my unofficial builds that I recently put in this thread :cool:

    Main properties:

    - PC Odin flashable (*.tar.md5 file)
    - pure stock, NOT rooted, the only change is replaced CSC pack (unbranded multi CSC OXA package instead of original)
    - contains CSC: BTU, CPW, DBT, ITV, KOR, XEF, XEO
    - can be flashed on ANY N910F without a pit file
    - it will NOT trip KNOX if you still have 0x0 :D


    Downloads:

    >> N910FXXU1COH4_N910FOXA1BOC3_alexndr.7z << (Android 5.1.1)

    >> N910FXXU1POI4_N910FOXA1BOC3_alexndr.7z << (Android 5.0.1)

    >> Recent unofficial builds for SM-N910F <<


    Important notes:

    - I do not have much time to expand this thread, so only multi CSC OXA builds will be available here
    - I am not able to fix any bugs as all builds contains only ORIGINAL, unmodified partition images (to let you keep KNOX 0x0)
    - Unofficial builds means => no OTA updates available (to restore OTA updates you just need to fash OFFICIAL firmware from Sammobile)
    - In theory it is not possible to brick your phone or trip KNOX using these builds, but I have to write it (just in case) - I am not responsible for anything that will happen to your phone

    Thanks for the 5.1.1 downloading now to test.
    Question: Do I need to flash any Modem or Bootloader prior to flashing the rom? I am currently on Pof2 running SOKP as my rom.

    oh and is there a root available for 5.1.1 yet? I need my permissions :p

    All necessary parts are inside the ROM (including BL / CP) :cool:

    ROOT (KNOX 0x1!):
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-4/snapdragon-dev/kernel-5-1-1-selinux-enforcing-t3190799

    As I always create multi CSC OXA build for personal use if such official version is not available (installing it is the first step while building the next DevBase) - thread has been updated :cool:

    ROOT (KNOX 0x1!):
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-4/snapdragon-dev/kernel-5-1-1-selinux-enforcing-t3190799
    (see post #8 or #7, do not forget to press "THANKS" to @zamcum in post #1)

    And, very important, this 5.1.1 FW comes with letter "C" in its name (COH4).
    Last 5.0.1 FW had letter "P" (POF2), and the previous ones "B" (for ex.: BOD2).

    There was no problem in flashing P over B, but you, _alexndr, say that the contrary needs a factory reset to avoid force closes.

    So, how is the situation for COH4 coming from POF2?
    Can we flash without factory reset.?

    No, factory reset is not required - all user data and apps will remain untouched :cool: I just tried POF2 DevBase -> COH4 (re-packed) update

    Thread has been updated :cool:
