There is no reason to deny the fact that Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is a very important update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I am saying that thanks to all the major improvements which include extended S-Pen functionality, newer icon style and several other Lollipop specific features, but this doesn’t have to mean that you have it all.

I bet that some of you are looking for a method to can root their Galaxy Note 4 N910F on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and I am here to support you all the way.

The root privileges are unquestionable: this is your chance to get rid of bloatware, to install all root-apps from the Play Store, system themes, power up your hardware, perform system backups, install a custom ROM firmware at your choice, overclock your Android and not only. But, you must be careful:

Before proceeding, you have to make sure that your handset is on N910FXXU1COH4 build. You can only root Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910F on XXU1COH4 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop using the files from below, but applying these steps on another handset is the path to damaging it.

Do not forget to take a complete backup of personal data in your smartphone as accidents happen all the time and your data could easily get lost.

You must also gain Developer Options, so tap several times on Built Number from Menu – Settings – About phone and enable USB debugging Option; to be more precise, you have to check this option by entering into Menu – Settings – Developer options. Then, make sure that a computer or a laptop can be used as you have to save the required files on it, so temporarily turn off the antivirus protection and also install the USB drivers.

And no less important, verify the battery status on your Note 4 – if the power left is lower than 50%, plug in the charger in order to avoid any issues. It’s enough that you lose your warranty while applying such an operation, so a bricked device is the last thing that you need.
