Today I've added the first Note4 (Asia only) models to the list: SM-N910C, SM-N910U, SM-N9106W -

I've also added S5 Prime (Higher resolution Korean S5) models to the list: SM-G906K, SM-G906L, SM-G906S -

Last but not least, a CF-Auto-Root was added for the Android TV (ADT-1):

Remember, I need stock recovery.img files to add new models. If you find a non-supported device firmware, kindly download it, extract the ZIP (if any), rename the .tar.md5 file to .tar, open it with untar, WinRAR, or whatever your favorite archiver is (most can open .tar), extract the recovery.img file, and post it in the central CFAR thread here -

As always, the full list of CF-Auto-Root's can be found at my site -

+Chainfire Will this trip KNOX?

Brent Foster commented on 2014-10-07 at 03:24:

Excellent work ChainFire, thanks for sharing!!

Caio Guimarães commented on 2014-10-07 at 03:47:

thanks for your work. my model matches on your devices table, sm-g900md (galaxy s5 duos) but your update is for KOT49H.G900MDUBU1ANG3. mine is ANF3.. yours seems to be newer right? is there a problem to auto root with different build id ? thank you very much

DroidMote commented on 2014-10-07 at 05:53:

You are the MAN. Thanks to your work millions of people can break free from harassment technological that every day the big companies try to impose with force to end users. Lock a bootloader and not grant root permissions is illegal. Is like someone have the keys of my house.

Junyoeng Bae commented on 2014-10-07 at 11:36:

CF root for N910C's works on N910S(SKTelecom in Korea) correctly.

Thanks! XD

+DroidMote Server / Client We should have the right to access the whole system in the phone we bought. It should not be limited due to the few of greedies.

DroidMote commented on 2014-10-08 at 09:11:

+Leo Cheng I really  think that it is an already existing right in any democratic country. The manufacturer of the device, can not have more permission of the owner. This can cause serious problems for privacy. Is like the manufacturer have the keys of my house or of all my private data. From 30 years in Windows, Linux and Mac OS we have always had the administrator permissions and no one has ever died. The countries do not yet know these monopolistic practices adopted by major manufacturers, it is our duty to inform at least with complaints. The reality is that the Majors (seller of songs and movies) impose this model which I believe today is totally illegal. The real and definitive solution is to start legal actions in every country. We will enforce all together what is our right.

Security and DRM can be implemented in many ways even with root permissions but without violating the fundamental human rights. Privacy is a fundamental right.

I get NEW Model's stock recovery.

Model name's SM-N910S , this is Galaxy Note 4 for Korea SKTelecom.

Where can I send the recovery.img file?

Chainfire commented on 2014-10-09 at 09:35:

Post it in the CFAR thread here , or upload it to Google Drive or DropBox or whatever and post a link there or here.

Junyoeng Bae commented on 2014-10-09 at 10:12:
Chainfire commented on 2014-10-09 at 11:07:

Posted the N910S and N910W8 CFAR's to my site

Junyoeng Bae commented on 2014-10-09 at 11:33:

+Chainfire  Yaaaaaap!

Thanks for your working! XD

Chris Robinson commented on 2014-10-09 at 12:00:

Wow.  Looks like a ton of stuff.  I don't suppose that you'll be able to root the SM-900a?

Chainfire commented on 2014-10-09 at 13:02:

And N9100 now. And no, as answered a hundred times before, this is not for locked bootloaders such as AT&T/VZW devices. Vote with your wallet, don't buy locked devices.

Chris Robinson commented on 2014-10-09 at 13:27:

Sorry.  I'm new to this whole thing with the Galaxy.  If I'd known I would have done things differently, although having a locked -- or unlocked device -- isn't always the only consideration when one choose a carrier -- or device.

Chainfire commented on 2014-10-09 at 13:33:

There's no need to apologize. However, that doesn't change the fact that I don't do devices with locked bootloaders :) Life is too short to waste my time on that.

Geronimo Arends commented on 2014-10-10 at 00:01:

Nice work

Victor Cheung commented on 2014-10-11 at 02:17:

Chainfire , I have some problems need your help , i use your CF Auto Root to succeed  root my N910U , but after few hours , the SuperSU show me that the su binary file can't update , i tried to root again and delete SuperSU , but the problems still here , what should i do now?? Please help me !

Mathias Körber commented on 2014-10-11 at 10:55:

Are you working on an SM-N910G Version yet? Anything You need to make that happen?

franck dromet commented on 2014-10-11 at 13:41:


Just a question, I have a SM-N910U, and I live in France. I'have a trouble because my smartphone don't recognise the 4G and th 3G I thinck that it comes of the Rom certainly. So my question is, Could I put the rom of a Exynos model like the SM-N910C on my SM-N910U ?

Максим Сидоренко commented on 2014-10-12 at 21:52:

Good evening! There are plans , or at least hope for CFAR - Samsung galaxy Core 2 SM-G355H?

STEPHEN DOKU commented on 2014-10-13 at 05:39:

+Enoch Okyere this is for Android only and you're here complaining about iPhone. Smh

Roger Tan commented on 2014-10-13 at 09:57:

Chainfire: I need the SG version. My model is SM-N910G. Thanks in advance. Cheers!

Chainfire, LRW87K just dropped for the ADT-1 (molly) and your autoroot no longer works. Is there anything I can do to help?

Jorrit Jongma commented on 2014-10-16 at 09:52:

+Joao Simoes You have download link somewhere? Can't find it, and my own device says there's no update.

Any idea when you will have it ready for sm n 910a?

Brandon Pitts commented on 2014-10-27 at 12:48:

Yeah that would be great "N910A" we would greatly appreciate any update.

Po-Han Lin commented on 2014-10-28 at 04:45:

Does rooting a China version of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 allow you to install Google Play on them? In other words, does that mean you can download a Google Play apk, install it, and then run with no problem? Or are there other steps needed?

abdul hotaki commented on 2014-11-01 at 13:35:

Can you root the samsung galaxy note 4 sm-n910a please. I have been looking for days to see if I can.

thanks in advance

Anuj Kumar Rawla commented on 2014-11-03 at 12:21:

I have a SM-910G. I downloaded and saved on my computer. Unzipped the same and dropped the files into the Phone Storage - Device/Download/Root Folder. When I click to Start Odin3-vX.X.exe it ask me "Open As" Text, Audio, Video, Image or Other. No option for PDA comes up. What am I doing wrong? TIA

ricky Wright commented on 2014-11-04 at 00:28:

I know you've said you will not be attempting to root the n910A because of the locked boot loader. I'm sure you've heard it a million times already.... I wish you would reconsider, as someone with a little above average knowledge of how it all works I really enjoy all the things that come with rooting my device. Having said that I lack the knowledge of coding and such to be able to do it on my own. I've come to depend on people like you and would love to see it happen for the AT&T note 4. Thanks

Vaibhav Narula commented on 2014-11-05 at 09:08:

Hey +Chainfire​, sorry if this is a repeat question, but any chance note 4 will be getting trainglw ? away support.?

Tim Coffey commented on 2014-11-07 at 21:53:

David Wemple commented on 2014-12-29 at 04:23:

I haven't looked too deep into rooting my Note 4 through Verizon yet, but out of curiosity, does anyone know if it has the same deal pre-programmed in as the S4 had where it ran into trouble downloading and installing system updates OTA after it's been rooted? =/

John Sigler commented on 2014-12-31 at 22:56:

I am trying to root my note 4  910P from sprint and when i try to download CF Auto Root it says "BANDWIDTH LIMIT EXCEEDED". Please let me know what to do.

+Khalid Alaioby

Hi, did you manage to root it bro? I have the same device, and i'm still stuck without admin privileges... i just want to root it, no custom rom here :(

Khalid Alaioby commented on 2015-02-02 at 05:36:

+AMINE TALBI I tried but I couldn't as the devise not supported by many developers

Ram Page commented on 2015-02-02 at 07:12:

Just a question... if there's no custom ROM for Note 4, is there any other reason to root your phone?
