One of the main things that will add fresh air to your device is the official Note 4 wallpapers. This part is free of any complications and requires no advanced knowledge on the subject: simply download and set your favorite image as wallpaper. .


Thanks to a XDA forum developer, dack23, we had access to the entire Note 4 audio library. This includes all kinds of ringtones: media, system, alarms, notifications and ringtones. You can install it in two different ways:

1. Flash from .zip file in recovery mode2. Extract the .zip file to your personal computer, and replace it with the original files in their respective folders. For this it is recommended to use some file manager with root permissions (like ES File Explorer).


Most original Galaxy Note 4 apps are available for download. Some do not need root access, while others need to be installed from recovery mode.

Boot Animation

Note: This is the animation version of a Korean version of the device, and contains the logo of an embedded local carrier.
