    I rooted my Note 5 but now when I make phonecalls it shuts down and reboots and “kernel is not seAndroid enforced” comes up top left hand side.

    • Nick says:

      So I tried rooting my phone, with your program. And now It’s a brick..
      So can I send it in to you, to fix it?
      I think you would have better luck with it anyways.

    I have a note 5 t-mobile on android 6.0.1 stock unrooted. The problem is that sometimes on a call if can hear the caller but they can not hear me. It does it in all places with a weak signal or strong signal it is not the device t-mobile replaced it and it still does it it did it on this replacement before I updated it to 6.0 and after the update I’ve tried resets booting in safe mode not installing any apps everything I can think of wondering if another rom would help I’mean at a loss any ideas

    I wonder if I am the only canadian trying to Root and Successfully install ROMs. I have a N920W8, I have rooted and tried a few ROMS, all with no call/audio, I have noticed some fixes online for T-mobile with Marshmallow. This however did not resolve mine, I was wondering if maybe there is a solution. I was trying to install the Grace UX for Note 5, Everything else works flawless but the call/audio, ,no dice, Please direct me in the right direction at all possible, thanks

    Hi Mr Lee, my name is Darwin, and I think I’m in trouble now. Can you please help me?
    I wanted to root my Galaxy Note 5, and i followed all of your instructions from opening Odin (the bar color is blue so i thought no problem until this step), and then I click AP, click the TWRP file and click Start.
    I saw on your video that my device would be automatically restarted and I need to press volume up+Home+Power buttons all together and HOLD IT until TWRP window appeared.
    However, I failed to hold it like you taught, and now my phone screen only shows black screen with SAMSUNG word at the center. Is there anything that I can do to fix this? Or should I forget about this phone, move on and buy a new one? I’m already at the point of accepting this mess now. 🙁 Please give me any respond if you have time. Thank you in advance Mr. Lee

    • Darwin Halim says:

      Good news, I went to Samsung Service Center and it can be repaired for about USD 5. I lost all of my data and I think things could get worse, so I can consider that my problem is solved now. 🙂

    Does this work for a Verizon Note 5? I heard that they have some rugged protection (for them) .

  16. Jane says:

    hi is there a way to convert N920C to N920T? My phone is N920C International version and recently I have switched to Tmobile but the reception is awful and Tmobile cannot fix it they just said bc it is not a Tmobile phone. I also cannot use wifi calling. I am wondering why is it that I cannot find anywhere online about converting N920C to N920T? Why all I see is people talking about converting N920T to N920C?
