    Default Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - MJ7 update and root

    I've read a lot of places on here and XDA and I can't get a real definitive answer anywhere. I'm on my 2nd note 3, first one rooted, this one not. I was going to hold off but now I want to because there are roms starting to be released. So I took the update, now I want to know: can I root?

    I would love to know as well. I've been ignoring the update notice all day (just started today)...I guess I can quit being lazy and root, but having to wipe the phone kinda sucks.

    If you haven't taken the update, can't you root with either of the 2 methods, then enable "survival mode" in SuperSU and deselect "Enable Superuser", then take the update and go back into SuperSU and enable root after the update has finished?

    If you've already taken the update prior to rooting, couldn't you odin back to the previous Android version, then follow the steps above to get root on the new update?

    If you don't like that either of those options, you can root using Kingo Root to root on the new update.

    I also stupidly updated my phone but was rooted and it unrooted me. You said that it is possible to odin back to the original Android version. How can I go back to the original MI9 build number so that I can root again. I'm just not sure about the Kingo method yet. Thanks for your help.

    If you do a factory reset wouldn't it bring you back to MI9? Using the first method of rooting is going to do a reset anyway so you won't be losing anything that you wouldn't from rooting. If a factory reset doesn't bring you to MI9, I'm sure a google search would track down the ODIN file needed to do so. Once you're rooted, follow those steps in SuperSU I stated before and you should be good to go. I know there are some people that didn't have much luck updating and keeping root, but I finally took the plunge and was pleasantly surprised everything went as planned.

    You can still root with the update. Odin back to I9. Root with De La Vegas on xda to the rooted I9, then go to about phone and update to J7. Hopefully it's clear enough to follow.

    What does rooting the phone mean and what does it do to the phone. I did the update and now it's messing with some apps. Very annoying

    I don't think that it will go back to MI9 just like if you do a factory data reset it would leave your phone rooted. I'm going to try it right now anyways. I'll let you know what happens. Thanks for the advice. Way to think outside the box or inside the box. Maybe I was thinking so far outside the box that I couldn't even think to do a reset. Be back in a bit to let you know what happened.

    I'm sure that you can find a youtube video telling you what rooting is and does. As for the update, if you're rooted and you update, if can mess up your phone. That's what happened to my Razr Maxx.

    Well that was a huge waste of time. Still MJ7. I don't want to odin back to MI9 because I have also heard that it will soft brick your phone if you try it. I have been thinking about trying the Kingo method but I'm still worried about it since it isn't even allowed on XDA.

    Well, sorry it was a waste of time. You can still root with kingo root. They have supposedly come out with a new version that takes care of the issues people were having and/or concerned about. I have not tried it, so am unable to vouch for the validity of how it works. I was lucky enough to keep root from MI9 when updating to MJ7.

    It's not a big deal. That's awesome that you were able to keep your root after updating. Did it trip the Knox when you updated or is it tripped now? I actually just rooted with the Kingo method and it worked fine with no adverse affects, so far. I'll let you know if you bank account is empty in the morning. That was just a joke, hopefully. Either way, it was super easy to root with Kingo. Almost too easy and it didn't even trip the Knox and it didn't wipe anything so for now, I'm loving it. Unbelievable easy to do as well. I will let you know if there are any bad sides to it once I have had a chance to mess with my phone a little more. Thanks again for the help.

    Any update on this? Also how do you tell if Knox is tripped. I updated with the OTA not thinking I would lose root. Now I am wondering how I can keep my app settings, etc. and get back root.

    No, Knox was not tripped before and it is still not tripped. If knox were to be tripped, what happens to the phone?

    Anyone who is already on MJ7, DO NOT TRY TO ODIN BACK TO MI9, OR USE DE LA VEGA. Biggerfasterstronger is absolutely correct you will end up with Odin giving you a secure cache check fail and it will softbrick your phone requiring a pit flash. DONT DO IT.

    Just voids warranty.

    If it's tripped then the warranty on your phone is void and cannot be changed back. In order to check if it's tripped go into Odin mode (turn your phone off, hold down power+ home+ volume buttons at the same time then press up on volume when prompted to. You will see some words at the top right of your screen I think it's the 3rd or 4th line down that says "Knox warranty 0x0) this means that your Knox isn't tripped and your warranty is intact. If it says 0x1, your Knox is tripped and you have no warranty. But your phone will work just fine and nothing else will be affected. Either way, I don't think it's a big deal. If you need to get a new phone, just throw your in the microwave for a few seconds and tell them that you were charging it and now it doesn't work. They'll give you a new phone.

    I opted for the update. For me the improved call quality was more important than root since I need my phone for work.

    i am super close to trying this kingo root method. will it work on a galaxy s4 from verizon? i am on the mj7 update.

    did you guys load custom roms afterwords or just delete bloat ware? i just want to delete bloat and get back my hotspot ability since i have unlimited data.
    is there a program to gain the hotspot ability back with a 3rd party hotspot app?

    Yes you can use foxfi. I'm nearly certain you can root with kingo on the s4. Might want to check out their forums though. They say that you'll want to update the superuser apk/zip after rooting because that's where the potential is for them to snoop on you. I loaded a custom rom and that avoided any hassle

    For those of you who are on XDA, here are the ROM and Safe Strap threads. These are the instructions I used and it was the EASIEST method I've ever used to root a phone... This should work with MI9, but using Kingo is the ONLY way (at the moment) to root MJ7. My Note 3 is SM-N900V (Verizon)... verified Knox 0x0

    *** this is NOT my original work...(credit to DutchDogg54 and others)... IF any of this is YOUR work please let me know so I can give credit where it is due. Again, this is NOT my original work***



    Once you are MJ7, start here:

    4) I used the Kingo root app - links to Kingo are not currently allowed on XDA but it's very easy to search and find. It's just like a "one click" toolkit - meaning it's a no-brain operation. Download the app and follow the instructions. Currently Kingo & vroot are the only known methods to root the MJ7 build for the Verizon Note 3 so it's one of these or no root for you. IF ROOT FAILS THE FIRST TIME, KEEP TRYING (it took me 3 attempts)

    5) Once that's done head over here: [RECOVERY LOCKED/MI9,MJ7] Safestrap Recovery v3.65 [2013-11-13 STABLE] & download the latest version of the APK then install it. Open the Safestrap app in your app drawer and install the recovery by clicking "install" within the app.

    6) Next it's advisable to get a trusted & open source Super User app on your device after using the closed source Kingo root method (optional, but highly recommended). Download the latest SuperSU zip - Google search latest version. .

    7) Reboot the phone and you'll come to the SafeStrap splash screen - choose "recovery." Once here, go to your stock rom slot by clicking "Boot Options" and ensuring it says "stock slot" in red at the top of the screen. If it says anything other than stock, tap the stock slot button and click "activate" on the following page. Hit back to return to the recoveries main menu. Once confirmed you're on your stock slot, tap install and flash the SuperSU zip (no wipes necessary). Once that's done, tap reboot system.

    You're now completely done updating to MJ7, Rooting your device, adding a stable Recovery & installing a trusted Superuser application. Now, enjoy To install ROMs, you do that using SafeStrap [SS]

    1. Reboot phone
    2. Click Recovery Button when SS splash screen pops up
    3. Click one of the rom slots [1-4] then click the Create ROM button [I left default values to test out the ROM. People say that its fine for most, but adjust date portion of partition if you use lots of apps]
    4. Once the ROM slot has been created, browse back into the previously created slot.
    5. Click Activate
    6. Then click Install
    7. Browse to whatever ROM .zip you download
    8. Done

    As far as how to change your primary Stock ROM I wrote this response earlier:

    I made Beans my primary ROM.

    1. Backed up Stock Slot
    2. Restored back up to open ROM slot
    3. Booted from restored slot to ensure functionality
    4. Backed up Beans ROM
    5. Restored Beans backup to Stock slot
    6. Deleted un-used ROM slots [Stock and Beans in ROM slot 1-4]
    7. Booted into Beans on Stock slot
    8. Re-installed SS
    9. Enjoy.


    Here Bean's Rom:


    Here's SafeStrap:


    Quick Google search will get you Kingo's app and the latest SuperSU...

    SUPPORT THE DEVS! BEANS for ROM, and HASH for Safe Strap. Also THANK DutchDogg54 for these instructions!

    Thank you for the info. I have been wanting to root, but my note has a nfc alarm/notification that keeps going off and I may have to take it back to vz for warranty and im afraid to root and take a chance on tripping Knox. I just tried another method to get the nfc alarm to stop. It is intermittent, but will know before too long and then I can root.
