Plase I need few inforations:
1) I have an old NOTE 4 sm-n910F with android lollipop 5.1.1 and I want to root it.II have the reAd that I will not lose all my data (an important thing for me) and that now the CF root is fool compatible with andrid lollipop 5.1.1 so I just need to flash it with odin without need to flash olso (after) the TWRP is that correct?

2) If one day I will decide to unroot my device there is a way to uninstal the cfroot always without looseing data or the ony way will be to installl with odin back again the stock firmware lollipop 5.1.1? I ask that why I use some app for my banck and I'm afraid that the root can give some security problems loging me in
Thank's in advance who will be so kinde to answer helping me :)

Not exactly - Get TWRP from twrp.me & make sure that it's for your exact device & Download the TWRP img.tar file to your computer - Don't try to extract it.
Download the SuperSU zip to your phone - I would save the SuperSU zip to your external sd card if you have one.

Boot your Note 4 into Download Mode &
Flash the TWRP img.tar file with Odin.
Once you have Flashed TWRP - Press & HOLD Power + Volume UP + Home buttons until you feel the phone vibrate & release all 3 at the same time - You should Boot into TWRP Recovery - Once in TWRP Recovery - Navigate to the SuperSU zip & Flash with TWRP.
You should now be Rooted.
I'd Boot back into TWRP Recovery if your not still there & Backup your phone with TWRP BEFORE you do anything else.

Your reply it seems to be more accurate but also more complicated I'm too afraid of making mistakes and losing data or brick my note 4 ;/
Watch a couple of YouTube videos on how to Root your Note 4 - I know that the process can make people feel nervous the first time they Root - But it's really not that complicated - Watching YouTube videos might make you feel more comfortable - But if you're still too nervous - That's okay too.

Check your device model ! Settings -> About device -> Model number. See the third post for exact supported model numbers. If your device is a totally different model, it will not work (may even brick) !


CF-Root is the root for "rooting beginners" and those who want to keep as close to stock as possible. CF-Root is meant to be used in combination with stock Samsung firmwares, and be the quickest and easiest way for your first root.

Donate
CF-Root has been available for many devices (Galaxy S1, S2, S3, S4, Galaxy Note, Note2, Note3, dozens of Tab models, etc!) and has clocked over 32.5 million downloads. This is not even counting custom ROMs that already include it. Don't be a leech, buy me a beer (and use the "Thanks" button!). Imagine if every CF-Root user has donated me $1...

What's installed
- SuperSU binary and APK
- Stock recovery

Installation and usage
Flash the CF-Auto-Root package as PDA in ODIN (details on how to do that are in next post), and your device should reboot into a modified recovery (signified by a large red Android logo) and it will install SuperSU for you and restore the stock recovery, and reboot back into Android.

If you don't get to the red Android logo, boot into recovery manually ("adb reboot recovery", or boot while holding Power+VolUp+Home).

Using this root increases your flash counter and trips the KNOX warranty flag!

Did you see the red Android logo during rooting, but SuperSU does not appear? This may sometimes occur due to left-over files and settings, however, you can usually install SuperSU from Google Play at this stage and it'll just work.

Hi, notice this is an old thread, but I am looking for N910V version for note 4.

Do we have [SM-N910*] CF-Auto-Root for N910V? Or which one can I use, as don't want to brick it.

Why does anyone want to use CF-AutoRoot anymore?
Just Flash TWRP with Odin & then either SuperSU or Magisk
Sorry. New to these things. Found a video that gives clear instructions.

I thought CWM and TWRP work the same way.

The CF-AutoRoot has all the files there.

Do we know which version TWRP for N910V , note 4. I know download different version can mess it up.

CF-AutoRoot & CWM haven't been updated in ages & are more cumbersome than just using TWRP & then Flashing SuperSU (which also hasn't been updated) or Magisk.
To find the correct version of TWRP - Go to twrp.me

For aroma file manager need twrp and for twrp apparently need bootloader to be unlocked which probably means root is needed whereas I don't have any of those yet. Also today the device started going into boot loop so now keeping it in recovery menu until I can figure out what to do...
Any suggestions on how to backup data or solve boot loop without data loss?

Yes the Bootloader needs to be Unlocked in order to Flash TWRP - TWRP isn't Root itself - It's a Custom Recovery - In order to have Root - You need to Flash a "SuperUser" - It used to be Chainfire's SuperSU which still works fine on older devices - The current SuperUser app of choice is Magisk.
As for backing up your device while it's in a Bootloop?
You could try connecting it to your computer & see if the computer can "see" your phone? If so then transfer / copy to your computer.
If not - You can try Booting into the Stock Samsung Recovery & see if you have any options there to copy the data?

In the end went found model number and csc country code from recovery mode googled for relevant firmware and then flashed it in download mode using odin software on the pc which came along with a zip file containing bp,ap,cp,csc normal and home files so if you use csc home then ur data is supposed to not get wiped. Not sure if it is the case since earlier I think device auto wiped itself before I did I think. But overall now rebuilding stuff from google backups etc.

    Other models

    CF-Auto-Root is not yet available for all models - one stock firmwares for these models become available, let me know, and I'll make the corresponding CF-Auto-Roots. Make sure to check the main CF-Auto-Root site as well, as models may be listed there that are not listed here yet!

    Follow these instructions to the letter. Do not touch any buttons or checkboxes that are not listed below to touch!

    - Download and unzip the CF-Auto-Root-....zip file (see posts below this one)
    - If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one
    - (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
    - Start Odin3-vX.X.exe
    - Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
    - Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)
    - (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
    - Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
    - Click the Start button
    - Wait for Android to boot
    - Done (if it took you more than 30 seconds, you need practise!)

    NOTE: Sometimes the device does *not* boot into recovery mode and root your device. Just do the entire procedure again if this happens. If it still will not install root and such, make sure that in Odin "Auto Reboot" is not checked. Then after flashing, pull the battery, and boot with VolUp+Home+Power button to boot into recovery manually. This will start the install process.

    New to Samsung? Unfamiliar with Odin? Think all the above is a hassle? Get used to it. It's very simple, and us Samsung folk use Odin (or Mobile ODIN ;)) for everything! It's so very very convenient once you get used to it. Notice the 30 second comment above? For experienced users, the entire process indeed takes only 30 seconds!
