    Respect to MrRobinson and Beanstown101!!

    I guess I'll start building a list of bloatware that can be removed.

    I hope we can get a closed sticky for nOObs like me who have never rooted a phone before. Something like a step by step instruction set with no other posting replies allowed. I get confused because I don't understand file structures. Something so easy, even a caveman could do it.

    This is taken right from the XDA thread:
    Section 1: How to Root Stock JellyBean with Odin - VZW Edition only!


    Step 1: Download and install these files to your pc:
    Odin- http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1340993443

    Step 2: Download one of the rooted stock odin images below to your pc:
    Dev-Host - root66_VZW_stock_system.7z - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service
    (You will need 7-zip or a compression tool that can uncompress 7zip files)

    Step 3: Power device off, hold the volume down/home/power keys until you see a yellow triangle, then press the volume up key to access "odin or download mode".

    Step 4: Open odin and connect the oem usb cable from pc to device. Adb driver should automatically install(atleast it did for me on windows 7). There should be a "comport number" in upper left hand corner of odin indicating communication between the pc & device.

    Step 5: Uncheck Auto reboot

    Step 6: Click on the PDA function of odin. Select the rooted system.img you downloaded in step 2, then select start. This operation should take less than 8 minutes before odin will say pass/reset.

    Step 7: Pull and reinstall battery.

    Step 8: Press and hold the volume up/home/power buttons until you see a green android. You should boot into ASR(Android Stock Recovery)

    Step 9: Wipe cache.(If you experience errors, boot back into ASR and wipe data.)

    Step 10 reboot!

    *Everything is working folks!! We now have a solid root method!!!

    Yes you will be able to remove bloat and im sure if the widgets work on the note 2 variants they will work on ours. Weekend I have time ill try it out. ..... and I took pictures and screen shots of the entire odin process, and will include them in the tutorial

    Just FWIW...people on XDA are reporting that the build.prop will only hold 240dpi (supposed to be 267dpi)

    Not a huge issue if you really need root now. Im sure things will get polished over the next few days though.

    It Is a stock build. Removing root just requires deleting some files. But yes if you want you can wait. things will be alot better when we have a full tar.

    If the build.prop won't stick, it makes me wonder what else isn't exact.
    Going back to stock means that shouldn't be an issue.

    I don't delete the crapware, I just disable it. It is just as fast as before.

    Does it still have full s pen functionality?
    As far as I can tell, yes.

    Gotcha. I've disabled it but would like the free space from deletion.

    Do you know if we can get the s planner calendar widget back with root??

    I have not seen a post providing the necessary files, but I have to assume it can be done once someone pulls the files.

    No offense, but I think he'd rather have mom feeding him. Tired of spitting out those hairs. =)
