There's no easier way to root than this! No computer required!

 

Download and install this app file to your phone. (Exynos Abuse)

http://forum.xda-dev...21&d=1355926774

 

Make sure you have allowed non-market apps to be installed.

Go to your system settings > security > check unknown sources > select okay.

 

You can install the app to your phone by downloading it in any browser and opening it using the browser. Pretty simple!

 

Once you have it installed, open it up!

Now select "Root device". You're phone will then be rooted! Doesn't get any easier than this!

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Want CWM or TWRP recovery to go with it? No problem!

 

Install this app (MobileOdin FlashKernel)

http://forum.xda-dev...68&d=1352635147

 

Then install (MobileOdin)

http://forum.xda-dev...68&d=1361632564

 

Pick the recovery of your choice! Download to your phone.

 

CWM:

https://hotfile.com/...121014.tar.html (N7100 recovery, includes USB Storage Mode)

CWM Touch (R950): http://www.androidfi...288116658471792 (Can only be flashed using one of the other recoveries listed)

 

TWRP:

http://goo.im/devs/O...0lteusc.img.tar

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Now open up the MobileOdin app. Grant it SU permissions.

 

Select the Recovery button. Find the location you downloaded the recovery to. Probably the internal SD-card in the download folder. Select the file.

 

Once you have that loaded in the app. Select flash firmware. Select continue. Select check (if applicable) then enjoy your new recovery!!

 

PURE PROFIT!

 

Custom recovery can be accessed by turning the phone on pressing volume up + home + power.

Samsung has made an official fix in the kernel for this exploit.  In the next update to these devices it will most likely be pushed out.  So please be aware of this.  Also if you have Perseus Kernel they have already implemented the security fixes.

i bought my phone yesterday and it still worked for me. (if anyone google searcher is wondering, lol)  I did however run into a new problem, sorta.  Now when i download an apk file off the internet (i downloaded gamecih) it downloads the file as an HTML file instead of an APK file.  any ideas why?  I know its the phone downloading it funny because i copied the url, emailed it to myself, opened the url on the computer clicked the same download, and it downloaded the APK. i was then able to transfer it to the sd card and install it just fine on my phone.  Kind of a hassle so im wondering if theres a fix that someone knows about to this issue.  Also, will i be able to update my phone if an update comes out now that i have this?  I realize i can unroot very easily but if i do that will the update prevent me from rooting it again?  Also, i have deleted that pesky app samsung has that prevents you from tethering, will that cause any problems as well when wanting to update phone?

not sure what browser you used but stock, chrome and dolphin will download it fine....

i'm not sure if this will stop you from receiving updates or not. check the about device in your settings and see if it's status says "modified". if it does you will not be able to receive updates. as for rooting. as long as samsung or uscc doesn't lock the bootloader we can root without an issues. if you install CWM or TWRP recovery. i will post the updates a couple days before they are available and you can flash them through the recovery. so no need to worry about getting updates :)

Hmmm hadn't noticed this thread before.   This is really awesome.   I used the Odin method which also worked fine and was super easy.

 

 

Wow, I came over from the HTC Evo 3d forums where we had to jump through lots of hoops -- Unlock bootloader and obtain S-Off by jumping a wire in the back of our phone.

Samsung Galaxy is so easy.   I love it.

Will rooting and flashing custom recovery using this method wipe my device or will my data remain intact?

Intact.  When or If you flash a ROM you will probably have to wipe the phone...

That's exactly what I needed to know. Thank you very much. I will probably try this later tonight, but use ROM Manager to flash the custom recovery.

I would steer clear of ROM manager, since it doesnt support our phone.  Odin the CWM in these forums instead.

Yes, stay AWAY from ROM Manager unless specified. We already had someone have trouble earlier because of ROM Manager. It's a pretty overrated app, so don't be lazy and just learn to flash things manually. It'll keep you 100 times safer :P

Roger, I'll stay away from ROM Manager then. I've rooted, installed custom recoveries and flashed countless ROMs on my HTC Desire and Motorola Electrify so I'm used to the manual way of doing things. In the past I has occasionally used ROM Manager and have never had any problems with it so I figured I'd be safe with the Note 2 as well. Thanks for the heads up!

Picked up a new Note II yesterday root worked for me today. I used TWRP for recovery and after the flashing firmware part then continue the phone shut down when it came back up it was in the TWRP menu I think I did backup...a bar loaded across the bottom for a minute or two then I think I hit reboot and it came back on normal. Just wondering how can I tell if my recovery is good?

if you have any of the n7100 recoveries you know it's probably good. you can test by backing up or flashing things.

So it was right to do back up and the slider in TWRP. So will the n7100 be in the TWRP app?
