  2. Extract the downloaded zip to your computer If you get a recovery.img and cache.img file, you have extracted twice. You should get an Odin flashable file with .tar.md5 extension
  3. Download Odin v3.09 [here] and extract the zip
  4. Power off the Galaxy Note 4
  5. Put the phone in download mode. To do so hold Volume Down, Home and Power buttons together. Press a button from the listed menu when it ask to do so to continue the process
  6. Connect the phone to the computer using USB cable while it is in the download mode. Wait for some time until Odin detects the device. When the phone is connected successfully, the ID: COM box in Odin will turn light blue with COM port number. This step might take some time
  7. In Odin, click AP button and select the firmware file with .tar.md5 extension
  8. Ensure Re-Partition checkbox is not ticked
  9. Verify everything and click the Start button in Odin

Wait for some time until the installation process is completed then boot the phone.

Many times the Android device doesn’t boot into recovery mode and root the device. If this occurs, then redo the entire process.

When it is still not rooted, make sure that Auto Reboot option in Odin will not be checked. Once flashing the root package, remove the battery and even boot the device into recovery mode just by holding the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons together. Doing this will begin the installation process. Your Galaxy Note 4 will ideally be rooted successfully.
