    So I have a Note 4, Note 4 N910T to be exactly. Im kinda a n00b on this Android world. All I want to know is there a way to root my Note 4 without the need of a PC? I have searched and read many ways but doesnt seems to work with the Note 4. Any of you guys know a way to do this?

    I dont have a PC so.
    All I want to Root the Note 4 for is the use the Screen Recording apps and maybe custom ROMs cuz I hate TouchWiz. So if there is any Screen Recording app that doesnt require Root please let me know.

    Their isn't any screen recording app I know off but once you root use rec.

    Secondly the easiest way to root is with an app like towel root or framaroot

    Have you taken a look on xda-developers? They tend to have much more up-to-date discussions on Android devices and rooting them. They're essentially the bleeding edge of Android rooting and REing.

    Yeah they are the best for that sort of stuff and they should have some helpful threads. Also certain android focused tech sites may have articles that could help you

    I tried towelroot and I can confirm that it is not working on the Note 4 right now but there is always the possibility of an update being released.

    If your main grudge is with the TouchWiz home, install something like GoLauncher EX. It's (in simple terms) an app that runs when you press the home button so it replaces your home screen. There are many themes available for it, too (<3 my steampunk theme)

    Hate touchWiz?.. Need custom ROM?..need big screen?


    Maybe..just maybe you should have brought nexus 6....


    Just saying.


    Edit: sorry I brought a nexus 6,I'm so happy that I feel like its my given right to promote it.

    But for rooting. finding a way of root with out PC its almost impossible. The chance of a app which roots is very slim and than its on the end of the life of the phone.
