The Galaxy Note 4 is the Samsung’s new weapon to rule the phablet market with the 5.7 inch monstrous Quad HD display. Samsung released the Note 4 in different regions as always, but in two variants, one being the device running on Qualcomm chipset while the other running on the Samsung’s own bred Exynos chipset. The Galaxy Note 4 with the model number SM-N910U is one of the device running on the Exynos 5433 chipset and is available for the users in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, NewZealand and Chile. The sad part is that the device doesn’t support the LTE bands which makes it inferior to the Qualcomm powered Note 4.
Comparing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 and the Exynos 5433 chipset, the Snapdragon is the more powerful one and the kernel sources are available for the Qualcomm chipsets, while Samsung takes time to provide the sources. Many of the Note 4 variants are rooted using the popular CF-Auto-Root firmware developed by the popular developer Chainfire who is behind the development of SuperSU app which is most widely used for the root permission manager on Android devices.
The CF-Auto-Root firmware the flashes the stock recovery and cache along the SuperSU binaries and SuperSU app, so that users can keep their devices as close to stock as possible. So you can enjoy all the super Mods and ROMs on your Note 4 with root permissions to explore the depths of Android. If you’re familiar with Odin tool for Samsung and its function, then it is very easy to root your device using the CF-Auto-Root firmware.
