Disclaimer: Installing an official firmware through Odin doesn’t void your device’s warranty, but it remains an unofficial process and thus you need to be cautious of it. In any case, you only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Backup important files stored on your device before proceeding with the steps below, so that in case something goes wrong you’ll have backup of all your important files. Sometimes, Odin installation may delete everything on your device!

Step-by-step Guide

Step 1. Download the Odin software and firmware file from above.

Step 2. Install Samsung Galaxy Note 4 driver (use method 1 there!) first of all. Double click the .exe file of drivers to begin installation. (Not required if you have already done this.)

Step 3. Extract the downloaded firmware file (in .zip firmat) now. You can use a free software like 7-zip for this. Install 7-zip, then right click on firmware file and under 7-zip, select ‘Extract here’. You should get the a file in .tar.md5 format now. We will be loading this file into Odin, to be installed on device (in step 9 below)

Step 4. Extract the Odin file. You should get this file, Odin3 v3.10.6.exe (other files could be hidden, hence not visible).

Step 5. Disconnect your Galaxy Note 4 from PC if it is connected.

Step 6. Boot Galaxy Note 4 into download mode:

  • Power off your Note 4, Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
  • Press and hold the three buttons Volume down + Power + Home together until you see warning screen
  • Press Volume Up to continue to download mode.

Step 7. Double click on extracted file of Odin, Odin3 v3.10.6.exe, to open the Odin window as shown below. Be careful with Odin, and do just as said to prevent problems.

Step 8. Connect your Sprint Galaxy Note 4 now using USB cable. Odin should recognize your device. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in bottom left, and the first box under ID:COM will also show a no. and turn its background blue. Look at the pic below.

  • You cannot proceed until you get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.
  • If you don’t get Added!! message, you need to install/re-install drivers again, and use the original cable that came with device. Mostly, drivers are the problem (look at step 2 above).
  • You can try different USB ports on your PC too.

Step 9. Load the firmware file into Odin. Click the AP button on Odin and the select the .tar.md5 file from Step 3 above.

  • Info: When you load files, Odin checks the md5 of firmware file, which takes time. So, simply wait until that’s done and the firmware file is loaded. Don’t worry if Odin gets unresponsive for a while, it’s normal. Binary size will also show up in Odin.

Step 10. Make sure Re-partition check box is NOT selected, under the Options tab. Don’t use PIT tab either. Go back to Log tab btw, it will show the progress when you hit start button in next step.
Re-partition Remains Off

Step 11. Click the Start button on Odin now to start flashing the firmware on your Galaxy Note 4.Wait till installation is finished, after which your device will reboot automatically. You’ll get PASS message as shown below upon successful installation from Odin.

  • If Odin gets stuck at set up connection, then you need to close Odin, disconnect the device, and then do the procedure again.
  • Or, if you get FAIL in the top left box, you need to try flashing again, as stated just above.

Step 12. First start of the device may take time, so wait patiently again. Check the Settings > About phone to confirm new firmware.

That’s it. Enjoy your Sprint Galaxy Note 4 on the latest Android 5.1.1 update with OG5 firmware!

    Is this rooted firmware already?

    • No. It’s stock, and that means it’s not modified at all. Not rooted of course.

    Steps to root a stock?

  • Pawel

    What is PG5 update is already rooted. Do you mean OG5? You also list two different phone models. This makes me nervous is it not proofread? Thanks

  • DAE51D

    UGH !!! I didn’t read these comments (Ghostery had them blocked) … I WAS rooted and this now just FUCKED ME! Why did you not have a huge disclaimer at the top saying it is not rooted? Furthermore, your text even says “In case root access is what is very important for you, luckily, the PG5 update has already been rooted too.” so what the hell just happened?! How do I get my root back?? I tried to re-do the CF-Auto-Root but now it fails.

    My phone is rooted, so will this stock firmware work on my phone? (i don’t care if i lose the rooted status of my phone after flashing the 5.1.1 stock firmware).

    • Krishna

      It will work.

      • Bill Gunner

        Just to let you know, i have downloaded & followed your guide to the letter and i have successfully installed the 5.1.1 stock firmware, and now i have noticed instant performance boast and the device is working flawlessly, and now i am able to receive OTA updates. Thank you.

        But can you kindly tell me that of which month like 16 july or November 16 or 14 december was this stock firmware update built on?

        and please in future, you should also upload the marshmallow stock firmware updates here, once it gets released of course.

        Thanks once again 😀
