Samsung Galaxy Note 5 root and custom recovery in few easy steps.

Well, you want some changes in your Galaxy Note 5? The best solution for that is rooting. On thing that should be kept in mind is that when you root your Galaxy Note 5, you will lose your warranty, so root your phone only if you are cool with losing the warranty. There are also some risks in modifying your device and no one is going to accept any responsibility if your phone gets damaged or some other destruction causes to your phone. My advice for you is to read this article carefully and then proceed with anything, follow the steps carefully and calmly. Avoid creating problems for yourself.

Well, to start rooting your Galaxy Note 5, you first need to unlock the ‘bootloader’ on your Note 5. Well for that, you are supposed to go to Settings, go in the option saying ‘About phone’ and tap Build number 7 times until you see the notification popped up saying that you now have Developer options. Go back. Go into the Developer Option and flip the switch to OEM unlocks.
