Galaxy Note 5 Android 6 Root Guide: Download Galaxy Note 5 TWRP recovery

Galaxy Note 5 Android 6 Root twrp Guide

In this guide, we will show you how to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 android phone as well as how to install custom recovery on Note 5. It shall be noted that the way Samsung note5 is rooted is different from the way it was rooted in Lollipop. Same goes for TWRP recovery.

Part A – Rooting:
1. Backup, backup, backup. I started with a Note 5 fresh out of the box and updated straight away to Marshmallow before rooting, but if you didn’t, then there may be apps / data you want to save & carry over. Once you’re done with your backups (and have a copy of those backups somewhere safe like on your PC, in case things really go south), go on to Step 2 below.
2. {OPTIONAL STEP} Find and download the stock firmware applicable to your variant at Sammobile so that in case things go wrong, you’ll have it close at hand to quickly restore your phone to working order.
3. At this point, if you’re on Lollipop (Android version 5.1.1), you can decide if you want to update to Marshmallow. Because, in case you skipped the whole section of "IMPORTANT STUFF" above, this guide is for an N9208 on Marshmallow ONLY.
4. Head over to Chainfire’s website and search for "nobleltextc".
5. Check (again) that your Build number matches the Build ID (MMB29K.N9208XXU2BPD4) – if it does, go ahead and hit Download.
6. Boot your phone into download mode (Power off completely, then press and hold Vol Down+Home+Power buttons all at the same time).
7. Extract the zip {CF-Auto-Root-noblelte-nobleltextc-smn9208} that you just downloaded into a folder.
8. In the folder, right-click on "Odin3-v3.10.6" (or whatever Odin version was included) and select "Run as Administrator".
9. Plug your phone in. One of the panels on the left side of the Odin window should light up blue. (If it doesn’t, Google for a solution as you have an issue quite unrelated to this guide.)
10. Click on the "AP" button (DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE!!), navigate to the CF-Auto-Root folder and select "CF-Auto-Root-noblelte-nobleltextc-smn9208.tar".
11. Hit the "Start" button.
12. Wait for phone to reboot (this may take a while).
13. Enjoy rooted goodness.

Part B – Recovery:

1. Noblelte is the applicable TWRP version for the N9208 Marshmallow, so head over here and download {twrp-3.0.2-1-noblelte.img.tar}. There may be a newer version, but this is what’s working for me. YMMV.
2. Go back to the CF-Auto-Root folder, right-click on "Odin3-v3.10.6" (or whatever Odin version was included) and select "Run as Administrator".
3. Plug your phone in. One of the panels on the left side of the Odin window should light up blue. (If it doesn’t, Google for a solution as you have an issue quite unrelated to this guide.)
4. Click on the "AP" button (DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE!!), navigate to the folder where you downloaded {twrp-3.0.2-1-noblelte.img.tar} and select that file.
5. Hit the "Start" button.
6. Wait for phone to reboot (this may take a while).
7. Power off and boot into recovery.
8. Wipe cache and Dalvik cache. Reboot.
9. Enjoy your brand-spanking new Team Win recovery.
