We perform high resolution N-body simulations for f(R) gravity based on a self-adaptive particle- mesh code MLAPM. The Chameleon mechanism that recovers General Relativity on small scales is fully taken into account by self-consistently solving the non-linear equation for the scalar field. We independently confirm the previous simulation results, including the matter power spectrum, halo mass function and density profiles, obtained by Oyaizu et al. (Phys.Rev.D 78, 123524, 2008) and Schmidt et
