[Guide] N920R4 Root + TWRP (7/24/16)

Recommended Posts

Okay guys, after a lot of hesitation I decided to attempt root and recovery, and was successful without any visual knox warnings.. There's not many clean guides here on this site so I'm posting the steps I went through.. first and foremost, enable usb debugging and OEM unlock.

 

For root, follow the guide here (note you'll get a sammy notification that your/you're device is rooted, turn that off. You'll also get a few odd reboots directly after odin resets your/you're phone, that's normal):

After root you can use Skipsoft's Android Toolkit to install TWRP.  Make sure you follow the toolkits instructions closely.

And for Xposed to work on our stock rom we obviously need the custom version that can be found here (ARM64 version):

So, thanks for putting this together but I'm a little confused. This method does or does not trip knox?

EDIT: I guess it doesn't really matter. I'll probably do this when I get home from work today

Sorry for the delayed response.  It's a safe bet to assume that it will trip Knox, however I have no way to see that it did, my boot screen stayed clean with no knox warnings.  Still though I need to go through this again and add screenshots to further explain the process.
