    Default Rooting the Verizon Note 2

    My N2 is parked somewhere in Memphis. For those who already have it I found this video at the following link on XDA Developers website:

    "How to Root the Samsung Galaxy Note II XDA Developer TV"

    How to Root the Samsung Galaxy Note II – XDA Developer TV – xda-developers

    In the video he walks you through rooting the T-mobile version and provides the links. He mentions that the same can be done for Verizon.

    Has anyone who's gotten the Verizon version already rooted their device and if so how did you do it?
    Please post instructions especially links if you have them.

    Thanks

    Not that I have read yet and given Verizon's demands to keep the bootloaders locked down I expect it will take a day or two . . . maybe longer maybe less if Samsung leaks the source out for us like the GS3.

    Already happened. LINK
    Or at least that should be it. Not sure why it says ICS though because that would mean Ice Cream Sandwich...

    wow that was fast, considering all the hoop-la we had to go through with HTC and the Rezound, GESH. I hope it all gets sorted pretty quick, Im going to miss wifi tether.

    First thing I'm doing when I get this thing is to root it(if I can). The people from the Rezound forum know me, and I'll put up as nice of a tutorial as possible.

    I also moved from the Rezound to the Note 2. Looks like a common move. I can also vouch for him, he is good at making tutorials.

    I agree. Root is a must for this phone.

    So who is going to be the first person to attempt this method? Get busy people, we need root asap!

    I tried to think of something witty, but this is all I could come up with.

    The cwm6-recory-n7100-121014.tar (this works for t-mobile, AT&T and international) fails with ODIN on Verizon Note 2. I hope someone releases a working version soon.

    i thought i had read that samsung is the only company that rooting doesnt void your warranty. if thats the case, then why does verizon care?

    Rooting only voids parts of your warranty. Verizon cares because they don't want to give away free tethering...which is free for all non-unlimited subscribers anyway.

    On the root topic, root is in the works and by the looks of things we'll have it sooner rather than later.

    but with verizon no longer offering unlimited data why would they care if there is a tether your only going to suck down your data faster and make them more money? and when can we expect to see a root for verizon note 2, i just got it yesterday and love it but i definatly need this thing rooted!! =)

    because a lot of people still have unlimited data grandfathered in

    foxfi works on this phone for unrooted people. So far im really liking it, and dont plan on rooting until quiet a few roms are out and there is a noticeable difference between stock and rooted.

    I too use foxfi and have the full version, so far it works fine and I'm not rooted. Even on my motorola droid 3 (rooted) I prefered foxfi over the rooted option. I would however like root to install adfree.

    I just want to add that without root, my desire to own this phone goes down dramatically. Don't get me wrong. I'm absolutely a fan of the hardware, pen, and screen size. What I am not a fan of is touchwiz and forced bloat apps. There are many little things I don't like about the skin that installing Nova only partially addresses. Bottom line is, if I could put a stock ROM of 4.1.2 on this phone and retain the pen functionality/apps, then I would be in phone heaven.

    They will root it eventually, probably much sooner than later.

    As a new android user of all 4 days, do you mean "tech geeks" will work on finding a way to root it? I assume its the same process and testing procedures as jailbreaking an iphone?

    Without TW you lose like 90% of the functionality of this phone don't you? I know everyone's down on TW but honestly as long as I can remove the bloat I'm cool. I just want root so I can clear off all the Verizon / Samsung bloat.

    Rooting an Android phone is different for almost every phone. So the techniques change from phone to phone. Some methods do work on multiple handsets but the norm is to have to find a new way to root the phone. Samsung phones are almost always rooted/unlocked via ODIN.

    Via ODIN makes no sense to me but obviously it will soon. Yes, I would like to remove the ample crap apps to make some new room so I am excited for this root process. The fear of bricking it unlike jailbreaking (inability to brick it) is scary though as a noob.

    Bricking a phone via ODIN is ridiculously rare. ODIN re-writes an entire partition on the phone via an image file. Usually by the time we get the images, there are stock ones that you can back out to as well. So yeah it's hard to brick a phone with ODIN. The long and the short of it is that we have two hurdles to cross, unlocking and rooting. We can get one without the other. The unlocking is more important in the grand scheme.
