    Default best rooting option for sim free note 3?

    Hi all,

    So I've been contemplating rooting this bad boy for a few weeks.

    Was looking for advice as to the best and safest method.

    I currently on a sim free note 3 from Carphonewarehouse in the UK.

    Preferably without tripping the knob counter.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Towel Root download towelroot by geohot

    If it doesn't save as a file, right-click on the "lambda" and "save as". It's an apk file. Install it on your phone and run it.

    I did try towel root but it comes up with a message that my phone is not compatible with it.

    Mines a sim free and think towel root is for verizon only.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Search xda for chain fires cf auto root. Shouldn't take longer then 10-15 minutes.

    Just download towelroot on your phones browser, install, make it rain, super simple, done it 2 times, I Uninstalled just to see if I could without messing anything up

    Look on xda, it will tell you what's available for root, as long as your build is 4.4+ and before a specific date (June 2013 I believe) it should work, so head on over and let us know if anything helped

    Hey guys, got around to rooting today. Followed a YouTube video so all went well and was pretty quick (about 2 minutes). Now it's just time to have a little play about and see what's rooms would be best.

    The Darthstalker rom would be a good place to start or even lab rats take over the world rom is also very reliable. Make sure you have a good recovery like twrp or Cwm. do a full nandroid back up just incase anything goes wrong.

    With most roms they come with its own installer. you can select the gapps and other bloatware apps as u please. The darthstalker rom has that option. Also you can try x-note. Search xda for the relevant threads. Happy flashing 😊
