Galaxy Note 5 gets official TWRP support starting today!

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is already getting official TWRP support starting today. The GSM version is first in getting this type of support as we already know that most experimented users will bake their devices and flash different custom ROMs on them.

Which Galaxy Note 5 version gets support first?

The Note 5 showed up officially mid-August and it is already available for purchase in many places of the world. The Note series remains one of the more popular phablet lines out there, and this can only mean that some owners will want to root and mod their device to their liking.

 

Team Win’s Recovery project custom recovery will allow users to mod their Note 5 as they see fit. Keep in mind that this official support version is available for the GSM Samsung Galaxy Note 5 version, which means that if your device is carrier-locked, this will not work for you. The download is available in the source link below.

SuperSU Beta available for testing on Lollipop – Chainfire is looking for feedback

If you’re a rooting lover and dev, you may want to try the SuperSU Beta and give Chainfire a hand in perfecting the update to Android 5.0. Lollipop is a big step towards security with its implementation of SELinux and, even if it managed to get root access on Lollipop just after release, Chainfire had a little bit more trouble in succeeding than usual.

A large number of root apps are broken on Lollipop 5.0 and most of them may be fixed by the new SuperSU build. Just in case you’re interested in the SuperSU v2.23BETA, you can give Chainfire’s official site a click. They are always accepting feedback on root apps, especially on those busted with Lollipop that probably don’t work with the beta.

SuperSU is a standard TWRP flashable ZIP that doesn’t do harm to your device, if you know how to install it safely of course. In order to enable it on Lollipop, you will need a patched CFAR kernel, an action you will luckily have to do only once. Be careful flashing!
