A recovery is one of the most important parts of the Android system despite its zero intervention with the original Android OS. Android recovery is an optional system which can be selected at the device boot and provides options to do some independent tasks like updating the OS, formatting it and many more. While the stock recovery that comes with the Android package is merely restricted to OS upgrades and factory resets, many custom recoveries are available in the market which can do much more advanced tasks like installing custom OS, partitioning file systems and much more.
The international Galaxy Note 4 with the model number SM-N910F is one of the powerful Android devices in the market right now. However, there would always be cravings for more and more features which would be attained by installing custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android.
