It is now well known that the true flexibility and power of Android OS can be experienced only if you root it. Even if you have a premium phone like Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Android 7/6, it can be rooted to unlock features you would have never seen in the original version of the OS installed.
In the following guide, we’ll teach you how to root Galaxy Note 5 on Nougat or Android 7/6 and offer ideas on how you can get the most out of rooting your device.
This is the easiest way to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 5. You need to download a Samsung flashing tool called Odin which will then flash CF-Root to root your device.
Once the CF-Root file has been flashed on your device, your Note 5 will be rooted on Android 7/6 or Nougat. You may now unplug your device from your computer.
The above procedure should have successfully rooted your device and you can confirm the root status by downloading and installing a root checker app on your Note 5.
In case you find that the rooting caused some of the data files in your Note 5 to go missing, then you need not worry as there are apps like Samsung Data Recovery to help you out.
With the Android Data Recovery app from Tenorshare, you can recover files that have been lost due to several reasons such as rooting, or deleted files by mistake, and so on.
All you need to do is download and install Tenorshare Android Data Recovery on your computer, and then, plug-in your Android device to your computer and select an appropriate option in the tool to recover your lost files. Based on what you have selected to be scanned, the search results will appear on your screen letting you know what can be recovered.
If you have recovered files using the above app and you no longer wish to keep the rooted version on your device, you can have it removed by flashing the stock firmware on your device. Remember that flashing the firmware will remove all the data stored on your device.
It's easy to unroot Note 5 as all you need to do is download a stock firmware for your device and flash it off on your device.
Once the firmware's been flashed, your device should reboot and your root-access will be removed.
