Sprint Galaxy Note 4 Pre-Rooted Stock ROM based on NIE firmware [no knox + de-odexed]

Page content:

Here’s a stock pre-rooted ROM for your Sprint Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910P that you can use anytime you want to come back to stock with root and other basic tweaks. This ROM comes with Knox removed and is available in both odex and de-odexed versions. The ROM is based on the N910PVPU1ANIE firmware which is the first firmware released for the Sprint Galaxy Note 4.

Sprint Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910P root was achieved only a few days back by Chainfire with the CF Auto Root. The Sprint Note 4 comes with unlocked bootloader hence it was easier to get root on the device unlike the Verizon and AT&T variants of the device which comes with locked bootloader.

This pre-rooted Sprint Galaxy Note 4 ROM comes as a recovery flashable zip file and credits for it goes to MasterZen88 over at the XDA forums.

  SPRINT GALAXY NOTE 4 PRE-ROOTED STOCK ROM (NIE)

Before you begin with guide instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.

  STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.

To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SM-N910P!

This page is meant only for Sprint Galaxy Note 4. Please DO NOT try the procedures given here on any other device of Samsung or any other company. You have been Warned!

  STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.

   STEP 2: INSTALL TWRP RECOVERY

 Skip this step if you already have latest version of CWM or TWRP recovery installed on your device.

Since this ROM is a recovery flashable zip file you need to install a custom recovery first on your Sprint Galaxy Note 4.

  2. Create a Nandroid Backup from recovery.

  3. Perform a Factory Reset (this will delete all apps and their settings and game progress). For this:
    • Tap on Wipe » then at the bottom of the screen do a Swipe on the ‘Swipe to factory reset‘ option (screenshot).
  4. Install the ROM file:
    • Tap on Install » browse to the location where you saved the files and tap on the ROM file. Now at the bottom of the screen, do a swipe on the Swipe to confirm flash option to begin flashing.

  5. Reboot your device. Go back to the main menu of recovery and tap on Reboot » then, tap on System to reboot your phone.
