How to Flash SM-N910F to SM-N910T Phone

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4, an older model in the Galaxy Note series released in October 2014, remains competitive with modern mid-range devices due to its status as a high-end premium device in its time. It is equipped with 3GB of RAM, a 16MP camera, and a 32GB ROM and is upgradable to Marshmallow. Despite being three years old, it is still an impressive device, receiving ample customization support from third-party developers.

Upgrading or changing your regional firmware can be done quite simply through Odin, and I’ll walk you through the process. This guide applies whether you’re upgrading your existing firmware or changing to an entirely different region altogether. For example, it applies if you have a particular firmware and want to switch to SM-N910T.

Note: It’s an extremely good idea to have a backup of your current ROM in case something goes wrong. If your phone does not like the new firmware, for example, you can simply try flashing your old firmware and data.


These are Samsung USB drivers.

First thing is to download and extract Odin on your computer, then install the Samsung USB drivers.

Now go to SamMobile, which hosts pretty much every available Samsung firmware, and download the Galaxy Note 4 firmware of your choice. You can either download the latest firmware for your region, or try a different region altogether.

The only factor to consider is your CPU type. The Galaxy Note 4 is equipped with either an Exynos or Snapdragon processor, depending on the region. Flashing SM-N910U (Exynos) firmware onto a SM-N910T (Snapdragon) device is an extremely bad idea. Thus, identify which processor your device has using an app like CPU-Z. If you plan on changing the regional firmware, ensure that you download a firmware matching your processor type.

With Odin, USB drivers, and your chosen firmware installed on your PC, proceed to launch Odin. Next, turn off your phone and hold the Power+Volume Down+Home buttons simultaneously to boot into Download Mode. You may now connect your Galaxy Note 4 to your PC using a USB cable.

Now in Odin, click on the AP button and choose the .tar.md5 file from the firmware you downloaded. Make sure ‘re-partition’ is not checked, and click the START button.

After a few moments, the firmware should be flashed successfully, with a green “PASS” message in Odin.

Important Notes

Some firmwares have bootloaders that do not allow you to downgrade firmware versions. So you cannot, for example, go from N910F 6.0.1 to N910F 5.1.1. What you could do in such a situation is create your own MD5 file with a 6.0.1 bootloader inside a firmware for 5.1.1, but that is beyond the scope of this guide.
