    One thread says you have an S4 and the other says Note 5, which is it? Your best bet is to check our S4 forum.
    Good luck!

    In order to ensure the success rate of rooting Samsung phone, you need to do some preparation works before the process. Below is the works that you need to check at the beginning:

    1. Make sure the power on Samsung phone is more than 60%;
    2. Samsung USB drivers on your PC for recognizing your device;
    3. Odin software installed on your PC or laptop;
    4. Ensure you have enabled the USB debugging and OEM Unlock on the device (Settings > About device > Software Info > Build Number);
    5. Backup Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, S8 or S8+ to avoid data losing or other risks during the process.

    Once you have done the above works, you can start to root your Samsung device now.

    You can act as the following steps to root your device.

    1. Download CF-Root-SGS2_XW_INU_KL1-v5.0-CWM5.
    2. Download Odin3v185.

    Step 1: Download CF-Root-SGS2_XW_INU_KL1-v5.0-CWM5 and unzip it on your computer. Then press the "Volume Down" and "Home" buttons of your Android device at the same time for several seconds. So that your phone will be rebooted into "Download Mode".
    Step 2. Connect your Android phone to computer via a USB cable. After that, extract Odin3v185 and check the "PDA" box. Double click the CF-Root-SGS2_XW_INU_KL1-v5.0-CWM5.tar, soon you can get a menu as shown.In this step, please choose "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time", then press the "Start" button to continue.
    Step 3. Wait for a while. After getting a "Pass!" on your computer and "Turn off" on the Android phone, please disconnect your Android smart phone and computer.
    Step 4. Press "Volume Up" and "Home" at the meantime to reboot your phone to the "Recovery Mode".
    Step 5. Select "Wipe data/factory reset" and "Wipe Cache" step by step. At last, tap "Reboot System Now", your Android phone will be restarted at once.

    Now you can work this Coolmuster Samsung Contacts Recovery software to restore lost contacts and text messages from your Android phone at will.
