Root Failed.

I've googled for hours and can't find a solution.

I have a T-mobile Galaxy Note 4, SM-N910T, version 4.4.4. I've installed the Samsung drivers for the device a few times. Everything connects fine. I've followed many videos that all describe the same process but I always get a fail. Thanks for any help.

Dear friend before doing the steps please check your device model number. It's clearly mentioned that it is for SM-N9100 while your device is SM-N910T.
Please be careful while doing the rooting because you could even brick your device by rooting with the wrong file.
Try this method instead; http://www.samsungsfour.com/tutorials/how-to-root-samsung-galaxy-note-4-sm-n910t-on-kitkat-4-4-4.html

You can purchase a jig via Amazon for like $2 bucks, or you can make one out of an old USB charger, with transistors and an Ohm reader. The jig will put it n download mode and you can then reattempt it. As bad as I hate to say it, keep trying it. It will eventual go the whole process. Good Luck and Happy Rooting

rebooting is to remove the battery, then when i start again it gets endless rebooting again :sigh: :-x :oops:
That is exactly what is called Android boot loop. If you carefully do the steps explained in the tutorial, you can still enter into recovery mode. How would I know? Because I experienced the same issue with my phone I still managed to enter into recovery mode. :-)

Are you able to see your phone model number? Or is is completely dead. What ever the case just remove the batteries and reinsert it. Then enter into recovery mode. The steps are cleary mentioned here http://www.samsungsfour.com/tutorials/how-to-enter-samsung-galaxy-smartphone-in-recovery-mode-all-models.html
Once you are in recovery mode select "wipe cache partition". And select "reboot system now" after that.
