I recently traded my iphone 5 for this beauty it is rooted and has SuperSu on it. Can I download and flash roms and such or do I need something else?

Re: Root question.

Ok, because I am already rooted can I install a recovery directly from my phone or do I need to do it from the computer?

I have vzw version . But I think you can download goo manager from your phone. Read the link I gave you. It should explain

I concur. Only thing I would add, which is already implied, is to be sure to watch the video on how to enable twrp. Once you have twrp, you have fun ahead. Just remember to back up your stable configurations in case of the need to revert at some point.

Re: Root question.

There are really two ways to go:
TWRP
CWM

Depending on the ROM and Kernel you choose to use, each developer builds based on what recovery method they find best. Basically when you load a ROM, you are loading an entirely new operating system for your Note 2. Most ROMs come pre-rooted and free of bloatware. Make sure you do your homework and understand what setup you are running to ensure you load tools that will work. You will have to involve your computer to load the CWM recovery method which is flashed with Odin, but you can load the TWRP via GooManager directly from your Note 2.

I am running TWRP, CleanROM, and the Note2Core kernel, phone is running really good and I am very happy!! My setup is entirely done from the phone, no PC needed.

Re: Root question.

In the menu there should be an option for Install OpenRecoveryScript. Select that and the app should do the rest. You may have to choose Install OpenRecoveryScript twice since the app will probably ask for root permissions the first time.

Re: Root question.

You go the top of the previous page where it says how to root. Read that. Then go to xda and read the android development forums for your phone. Make the choice about which roms suit your needs best and then download it.

Once you install open recovery reboot into twrp and you can wipe cache and flash away. If you dont have a reboot option menu installed, reboot and hold the volume up + home + power button. That will get you into twrp.
