NOTE: Before to proceed be aware of the fact that root is not needed if you just would like to SIM unlock the phone as our app now works even on stock rom.

2.) Enable USB debugging and OEM unlock from developer options (if available as option, else skip this step).
3.) Connect the phone to the PC and copy BETA-SuperSU-v2.71-20160331103524.zip in your Note Edge sdcard root.
4.) Power off phone completely.
5.) Hold Home and Volume-(down), keep them pressed and power the phone on.
6.) Press Volume+(up) when prompted to enter "Downloading Mode"
7.) Connect USB and wait for all drivers to finish installing.
8.) Open Odin3 (Run as administrator), then select twrp-3.0-915P_915R4.tar in "AP" slot, then pust START on Odin3, the file will be flashed.
9.) Power off phone completely.

Note (*1):
On some phones Android replace the recovery image with the stock one during the reboot, so follow these steps in such case:
a.)Open Odin and click on Options tab, then deselect Auto Reboot.

Well,  i got hold of a blacklisted s915p.. and I've stuck with buying your program again. This time though, i am going to root the device so i don't have a relock, like the first time.  Have you guys hit the Samsung update relock patch head on and modified your unlock app to prevent it? I'm tempted just to flash it, but I'll have the same issue of relock a few months down the road,  so I'll be doing a root. (2 years ago i bought your unlock, was successful, an OTA update came thru,  and RELOCKED the device 4 months later. .. s915p, sprint)

Hello hlzimmerman1971,

should the device locks back again you will be able to use our app again to unlock it because the license last for all the phone lifetime, so don't worry about it.
See you ;-)
