Download Tools:
Odin3_v3.10.6
USB Driver (Only needed if you haven’t installed Kies 3 / Smart Switch yet)

  1. Install the USB driver. This process cannot be done if your Galaxy Note 4 is not recognized by the computer. So make sure to install the USB driver first.
  2. Make sure to fully recharge the phone first or have at-least 50% remaining power.
  3. Backup all important data stored from the device, such as contacts, photos, videos, messages and among stuff you have.
  4. Unzip the firmware file. Decompress the firmware file by using Winzip, 7zip, WinRAR.
  5. Run and Configure Odin. Run Odin downloader Odin3_v3.10.6 on your PC desktop. Watch out the check-boxes options on the right top of Odin, ensure that the ‘RE-PARTITION’ is unchecked, only the “AUTO-REBOOT” and “F.RESET TIME” checkboxes are both remained checked.
  6. Reboot your Galaxy Note 4 N910F  into Download Mode. To reboot the Galaxy Note 4 into download mode, you need to turn the power off first. Once it is completely turned off, just press and hold the Volume Down, Home and the Power/Lock button simultaneously. It should then prompt you into a warning screen and asking you to press volume up if you want to continue or volume down to cancel, just simply press volume up to get into download mode. The download mode then displays an Android robot and say’s “Downloading.. Do not turn off target!!”
  7. Connect your Galaxy Note 4 into your Computer. As soon as you reboot the phone in download mode, simply connect the phone to your PC or laptop USB. In Odin window – the ID:COM box will turn to blue color and indicates the COM port number and a word “Added” on a log box will prompt you that the device is already detected or recognized by Odin. Your COM port number might be different from mine. If you do not see a COM port number then there’s something missing or wrong. You may read again from the top of this post.
  8. Load the Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910F Stock Firmware package. The stock ROM is packed in a single tarball. You just need to simply click on the AP button, then browse to the folder where the file you have previously extracted and then select and load it. Example: “N910FXXU1COI3_N910FOXA1COI3_HOME.tar.md5″
  9. Start Installing the Stock Firmware. Once all set and ready, fire-up the “START” button in Odin to begin flashing the stock ROM. Do not ever interrupt the phone while already in flashing progress, like disconnecting the cable or turning off the device. Just wait until it completely finishes.
  10. Wait until Odin shows PASS!!. When the Stock ROM installation successfully completes, you will then see a word “PASS” in Odin. That simply indicates that the flashing was finished, and on the log box it says “All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)”. The phone will just then automatically reboot, then it’s about time to disconnect it from your computer. Confirm if you successfully installed the stock firmware by going into Apps > Settings > About device.
