Now those of you who know what rooting is, you can skip this part and could jump right to the rooting guide. But for those of you who don’t know what rooting is and why to root your device, rooting your device basically means you are gaining special permissions for your device which you couldn’t access without root.
Putting it simply, after rooting your device you can tinker with your device more freely and install some awesome apps from Google Play Store like Tasker, Titanium Backup etc., which require root privileges. You can also install custom ROMs which have more features compared to the stock OEM firmware.
So that was it. Now let’s jump to the rooting guide for Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The package that we will use here for gaining rooting privileges of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is made by Chainfire. You have to load this package in Odin and then Odin will send it to your device and your device will be successfully rooted.
You will increase the stock counter and trip the Knox flag which will void your device’s warranty. So use this guide at you won risk.
For this to work, first you will need the Samsung USB drivers which you can find here.
