      Don, I did the same thing. Kies didn’t support the Note Edge AT&T version. It said Smart Switch replaces Kies.
      Smart Switch says unsupported device. I tried to root, no success. Tried to flash back to Kit-Kat. No way to revert back.
      Called Samsung. They suggested to take it to Best Buy Samsung Experience counter. I did. The tech flashed my phone and got it working again in 2 minutes!!! I worked on it for 3 days with NO luck. Try that solution. Still no root solution.
      The AT&T Galaxy Note Edge has massive upon massive amounts of bloatware.

      I tried the same. Tried to downgrade to kit-kat. No way. Completely locked me out. Had the phone 1 day. Spent 3 days trying to fix it. No way. Kies didn’t support note edge. Said smart switch replaced Kies. Downloaded that and didn’t work either. Called Samsung. They said take it to Best Buy to Samsung Experience counter. I did. Guy flashed my phone and got it working in 2 minutes. Still no root and cannot go back to Kit Kat. Don’t try or you’ll get the same thing. NOTHING eorked. I was up for 3 nights trying to resolve it, but couldnt.
      If you have a Best Buy, take it to the Samsung Experience both. I’m going to buy Pete a gift card for fixing my phone!
      I have the AT&T model. It has massive upon massive amounts of bloatware. It’s ridiculous to have all this useless AT&T crapware.

    somehow I do not exactly get where the actual rooting of the device takes place – if i understood it correctly this method just install the cwm on the device which than allows to install supersu (and according to web supersu already required rooted device) – anybody a hint ?

    I rooted my note 4 edge with your video 8 months ago. I have the cwm recovery. im still on 4.4.4. Is there a good rom to flash to my phone or is there a way to up date to 5.1.1.

    Hi,

    I am attempting to root my Samgsung SM-915G on 5.1.1

    i click on the link to the 915g kernal page, but in the subfolders for the edge, it only has 915F. can i use these? if not, how do i get a kernal for the 915g.

    Thanks so much for your awesome videos.
