First I would like to say thanks for this release, it has been running nice and smooth, but I have noticed one small issue. Prior to upgrading to this rom, I was able to access my memory card on my PC when I connected my phone to it. It would show up as the name of my device and opening the folder/icon I would get the phone's Internal Storage and the External Storage. I now get the Internal Storage only, is there a setting I missed or a change to the firmware? I have tried five different PC's (Windows 7-10), I have scanned and formatted my SD Card (which reads and writes fine in a memory card reader), I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the phone and still not getting my external storage to show on the PC when connected. Anyone else having that issue? Help....?

Did you install FolderMount or another app that patches system files?

FolderMount definitely hides the micro sdcard from PC but you'll see it with card in card reader. But you could just manually transfer files to get around that.

Quick question, I'm running this Rom right now and I keep getting bugged about the update. Can i just take it over this rom with stock recovery, or is there a way to get rid of it? Also, if I can take it, will it mess up anything In the rom? (Deodexed, root, my xposed)
Just freeze the updater for system update.

freezing that particular one stopped the nag. And prl and profile update still works.

I can't figure out why I can't get this rom to work.

Been on OG5 since I got the phone.
ODIN'd the stock PH4 tar.
Installed/booted up multiple times no problems.
ODIN'd TWRP.
Wipe everything on internal rom.
Flashed this rom and then it hangs on the SPRINT logo and there is no boot sound.

Because if your installing the rom then wiping everything internal. your are erasing the rom. Lol. Try this. Odin ph4. Boot to stock recovery. Wipe odin ph4. Again. Let boot. Activate update profile prl. Reboot to download mode. Flash TWRP. Reboot to OS. Now power down reboot to recovery. Wipe all except external. Do advance like 5 times. Same for picking them do that 4 or 5 times all but external SD. Reboot to recovery flash rom. Let boot. Take 10 minutes and you will be fine. Sounds to me all Maynot be updating to ph4. A wipe in stock will fix that. Should say official at download screen. Then odin it again. Do all above.

I installed PH4 Marshmallow TAR: N910PVPU4DPH4_N910PSPT4DPH4_SPR.zip from here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-4-sprint/general/stock-tar-odin-flashable-t3250864
But it then updated me to PJ1 all by itself! I didn't even have any say in it!
Can I still use your root here or should I just wait till you have a PJ1 version and if so, how long will that be do you recon? Or should (can) I re-odin the PH4 tar again and quickly turn off updates or something? Suggestions?

Also, I was experiencing these horrible boot loops out of nowhere recently on (I was on rooted stock PG1). Phone has been solid for the past year. I literally had taken a photo and the phone rebooted yesterday (at 3pm) and couldn't get it to stop doing that until just now when I Odin flashed PH4 and told it to NOT install my previous apps. Before this Odin flash, reflashing my previous ROM, wiping, etc. nothing worked. So I'm running hella stock right now. But I'll take that over a "bricked" phone any day. So if anyone else is experiencing this boot nightmare (and I see there are many folks in other threads) this is one possible solution. I will let it run all day today as is (stock AF) and see if it is stable before calling it a true "fix'.

Obvi would really like root again to re-install my TB apps/data.

Have you replaced your battery recently? May be time for that. These batteries are rated at 500 full charge cycles. Maybe less depending on use. Most likely means it lasts a year, then replace.

Camera load causing reboot may indicate worn battery.

Yeah, I read about this battery issue for other people, but the battery I use is a couple months old, plus I tried 3 batteries total.

Since installing this ROM (and the forced update), my phone has been solid now actually.

Also, not sure if this is common knowledge, but after doing the PH4 and update to PJ1, it was trivial to root. I just Odin back TWRP and then used a su .zip install. Bam! worked like a champ, actually I was astonished how easy that was to get root. The hardest part is now using TB to get all my apps re-set up. I'm just glad to have my phone working again! :)

My screen rotation doesn't work with this rom. Any ideas on how to fix it. Other than this everything works perfectly. I have screen rotation enabled in settings under Display and Wallpaper.

A number of MM users complained of losing auto rotation after uninstalling Facebook from ROM with an app.

/system/lib/libgnustl_shared.so shouldn't be removed.

If you uninstalled Facebook, extract the libgnustl_shared.so from ROM zip, copy and paste, set permission to 0644. Owner and Group should be set to root, root. Reboot.
