T-Mobile has always been the most friendly carrier whenever it comes to the hackability of Android devices. However, most carriers in the US sells devices along with locked bootloader. T-Mobile sells its Android devices as bootloader unlocked that makes it easier for users to root their device. The T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 comes along with an unlocked bootloader. That you can easily root via CF Auto Root by Chainfire. In this article, we are going to talk about How to Root TMobile Note 4 – User Guide. Let’s begin!

CF Auto Root is basically a rooting tool developed via the renowned developer Chainfire to root Samsung Galaxy devices. CF Auto Root also uses Chainfire’s own SuperSU app in order to manage superuser permissions for apps and ADB as well.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 basically runs on the APQ8084 chipset from Qualcomm that also supports LTE bands, unlike the international Exynos 5 variant. Also, it’s mostly less painful for the developers to root and make custom ROMs (specially AOSP based) on devices. They are running Qualcomm chipsets because the company releases source code for its architecture. Samsung doesn’t release source code for its Exynos chipsets and thus the incompatibility along with AOSP based custom ROMs.
