    Default root and update

    Awhile back I used the saferoot utility . Now that the update is available I wanted to unroot and used the option in superuser to unroot. When I try to do the update the android guy falls down and the update fails. So I can't reroot because the kernal was patched, and I can't update for whatever reason. Anyone run in to this?

    I haven't run into that before but have you tried updating via ODIN?

    I have not. but I am unrooted now and can't restore root so I can't use odin. I am backing everything up with helium right now and may try a factory reset. but I'd prefer not to as its a pain

    You don't have to be rooted to use ODIN. Just look for the updated stock firmware for your Note 2 and flash via ODIN or KIES.
